    Default Links to great/must-read retrocomputing blogs

    Hello all. While scrolling through the RCR podcast to find a link to an article from a couple of years back, it occurred to me that there is no list of great retrocomputing blogs and websites. I'm interested to know what are everybody's must-read blogs?

    Also interested in links to websites and forums as well.

    Does such a "master list" exist?

    Hi Dave,

    No master list to my knowledge. I think the problem is they can come and go...and there are so many...some general and some very specific. I imagine it would be nightmare to maintain.

    That's true that an official comprehensive list would be difficult to maintain, especially since tastes vary and definition of retrocomputing varies from person to person. But here are a few worth looking at. (Yours is one of them, Tez). I will post some more here as I think of them.

    Have googled my way to one or two of Tezza's articles for specific problems on occasion, but never really explored his site until now. This troubleshooting flowchart of his is just perfect! I've found myself on every node in this chart at some point.
