We left our first house in Warwick (1992 - 2003) and moved back to our hometown in Providence to live next door to my mother-in-law. She would pass a little over five years later, but that time spent nearby made it more meaningful and precious.

Retrocomputing

November 19, 2019

Over the past three decades, I have invested in the latest for home video gaming. This year, I am a Google Stadia Founder.

But I still enjoy retrocomputing -- mostly games from the 1970s & 1980s arcade and home computer era -- using machine emulation.

I started learning BASIC on a WANG like this in high school. Bought my Commodore VIC 20 in February 1982, followed by its replacement Commodore 16, then Commodore 128. I was an Amiga PC user from 1988 - 1997 before succumbing to PC -- for Linux.
