Introduction by the Administrators

This wiki is an experiment to create a means for knowledgeable people to enter their information into some kind of a knowledge base. This is however, not the relatively formalized tone and style imposed by Wikipedia. Sentences starting with "I seem to recall" are perfectly welcome here - and articles do not have to be in the descriptive, encyclopedic style Wikipedia enforces. On the contrary, it is preferred that many of the articles be references, guides, helpful hints, suggestions, tutorials and so on.

If you have any information you want to contribute to this wiki, please, contribute it. We'd much rather remove or modify a dozen potentially unsuited submissions than miss out on a single good one. We hope this wiki grows into a useful resource for everyone interested in classic computing, no matter what their level of knowledge may be; it is meant to be all-encompassing. -- Tore & Lucky 16:11, 16 May 2007 (PDT)

News

  • After some strange malware problems - presumably owing to our hosting provider being compromised, the site is once again free of worry. All reports of problems go to me, with my gratitude. -- Tore (talk) 00:50, 10 June 2012 (PDT)
  • To get some measure of control over spam, user creation has been temporarily disabled. Please send Toresbe a mail if you wish for him to set up an account. This should be a short-term, temporary measure. -- Tore (talk) 21:32, 10 February 2011 (PST)
  • Phew. The spam has really been hitting this wiki pretty hard lately. I've had to enable user account verification in order for this wiki to at all be able to survive. Thanks for everyones' efforts in curtailing the spam. -- Tore (talk) 14:52, 8 February 2011 (PST)
