Out and about with a laptop from 1989

I thought it would be a good idea to take my old retro-laptop out to Costa for a coffee (yes, that is a Starbucks reusable cup but hey, saving the planet trumps brand loyalty 😁)

Psion MC400 and coffee
Hiding round the back – Internet connectivity provided by Raspberry Pi 3B+ and WiFi of course

Some videos below – listen to the clack-clack-clacky beauty of that Cherry Keyboard 🙂

Doing a ping in a terminal session to the Pi – coz why not?
Sending a tweet – via rainbowstream on the Pi
Sending an email, via msmtp on the Pi
Email received, complete with typo 😊

More details on how the Pi processes the files written to it by the MC400 here
