About MindFlareRetro.com

Hello and welcome!

Please join me on my little crusade to rescue and repair the vintage 8-bit computer and console systems, as well as related retro electronics, that many of us grew up with.

My computer journey started when I was about twelve years old. I grew up with Commodore 8-bit computers and that experience influenced my life greatly. I invite you to read my whole story in the Blog section titled, You had me at READY.  Perhaps you had a similar experience. Let me know—I would enjoy hearing your story.

I now collect unwanted and neglected retro computers and do my best to resuscitate and refurbish them in my own spare time and share my journey through videos on YouTube and retro computer community posts on Twitter and other socials.

I am not an expert, but I learn as much as I can from those who are more knowledgeable and in turn, hopefully, inform others who share a passion for the preservation of retro computers.
