“A new project? Again?!”
Yes, I know. My personal projects are as persistent as volatile memory. But hey - not this time!
Welcome to fabulous.systems, where we take a deep-dive into the wonderful world of (sometimes pretty) technology.
For those who don’t know me: Hi, I’m felsqualle. I’m a systems administrator at the German webhosting company manitu by day and a general-purpose tinkerer and project co-lead for ScummVM at night.
I got my first PC when I was 6 years old, which means that I’m getting pretty close to hitting 25 years of PC usage. During my long-lasting journey, I used each and every consumer version of Windows (yes, I tried Windows 1.0!) and most versions of MS-DOS. My very first GNU/Linux experience was back in 2003 when I got my hands on a copy of Knoppix, which was one of the most famous distributions of live GNU/Linux systems back then while still being maintained today.
At some point, I got interested in retro-computing - and for some reason, this passion never faded away. And this is what I want to share with you as well.
So, what should you expect? Well, in this blog, I’ll not only share some of my sysadmins tricks as I did previously, but I’ll also tell you about devices and software that nobody really talks about anymore.
You’ll find some familiar stuff and pieces of software where I believe that I have one of the very last copies in existence.
Sounds pretty exciting, doesn’t it?
