    Retrocomputing enthusiasts the World over are cordially invited to
    participate
    in the 2008 RetroChallenge, commencing July 1, 2008.

    RetroChallenge is an opportunity for fans of "obsolete" platforms to
    spend a
    month pushing their retrocomputing limits in the company of like-
    minded geeks.
    Participants set their own goal(s) and typically keep the community
    apprised of
    progress via weblogs or on the Retro BBS.

    Challenges are as unique as the individual RetroChallenger -- in the
    past
    participants have programmed games; created music and video content;
    performed
    dangerous hardware hacks or simply spent a month trying to get an old
    computer
    to boot.

    RetroChallenge is not so much about competing, as it is about sharing.
    Think of
    it as an on-line show-and-tell for RetroGeeks. Because the individual
    challenges
    are self-posed, the RetroChallenge is equally well-suited to hoary old
    wizards
    and tender newbies alike. It's not about winning, but about *doing*.

    RetroChallenge is open to *all* retrocomputing platforms. For the sake
    of
    simplicity (and to avoid the usual endless debate), the criteria for
    what
    constitutes a "retro system" is anything older than 10 years, though
    obviously the older the better.

    so this is different to every other month how?

    actually, I can get my PDP11 to boot, it's being able to run any
    meaningful commands to mount the libraries, and do anything useful
    that's proving tricky
