A summary of all the things that are right with my 1991 Psion MC400 laptop, “online” via an attached Raspberry Pi 3B+ and wifi…
Getting the 1990s era Psion MC400 laptop online via an attached Raspberry Pi and some custom shortened Psion serial-USB cables… Tweets, Emails, BBC News & screenshots! All in glorious monochrome and at 19200 baud 🙂
Connecting my retro-laptop to the internet via 2 x RS232 serial connections to a Raspberry Pi… and defeated (for now) by lack of hardware flow-control signals 😦
Connecting 30-year old computers to the internet in 2021… for the LOLs. Revisiting RS232, null-modems and the like, all at 19200 baud.
Controlling my 1990s Technics tape deck from a 1990s PDA – Psion Series 3a remote control via NodeMCU
Retro computing. Getting 1990s era computers connected to modern stuff….
Using Raspberry Pi GPIO to read the contents of an old 5V CMOS ROM
Creating a remote control for a 1990s tape-deck using raspberry pi, python, node-red and some relays. Features minimal hardware hacking of the tape deck itself… 😉
Streaming audio from a turntable with Darkice and Icecast running on a Raspberry Pi
Creating a temperature monitoring dashboard in Grafana to display temps from sensors all around the house. Running on Raspberry Pis and using the venerable DS18B20 one-wire sensor.
