There should be an award given for the dumbest question regarding using 20 year old technology on a new computer using Windblows XP or other newer megahz CPU technology. Eg: ATI on an 3000Mhz box using MS 3.3. or how I get my XP or its newest MS$ incarnation to run a DEC Rainbow game.

Should some of these questions be forgivable on a Vintage computer forum ?
Or should they just be put in a category as awaiting the annual Rretch award ?

Simulators and all are fine, but only emphasize the absence of the original machine. There has to be some limitations on what is discussed here. Valid questions are answered but only within the compass of old computers.
Let's get a bit more hard-nosed. Impose the terror of the annual Rretch award on the Philosines..
