AByteBehind.com is home to everything I do classic computing wise. “A personal place for vintage and classic computing.”

 

Exhibit 1: TRS-80 Network 3 and Network 2 with software, games, educational titles, binders, examples and more. Users can dive into the early innovation of networking with the TRS-80's Network 3 system, a groundbreaking tool for large classrooms that harnessed the RS232 protocol to seamlessly share resources and programs across multiple TRS-80 Model 3 and 4s. Tailored for educators and students, this system transformed the TRS-80, offering capabilities mirroring a stand-alone, disk-equipped Model III setup. Users can explore features in person like the Network 3 Operating Software, 15MB Hard Disk System, and more. The network 3 consists of four (4) TRS-80 models 3, 4, 4D and 4P connected via RS232 network sharing a hard disk and software from the host. More info can be found here: https://abytebehind.com/trs-80-network-3. Will be showcasing all educational recovered titles, all machines are restored and working, and functions as a game arcade.

 

Exhibit 2: Tandy TRS-80 Model 2000 HD with software, extras including the rare Infocom titles (Planetfall, Witness, etc.), unrecovered software from Digital Research and Microsoft, including development titles of Mahjong, Taipei, Solitaire among others. Users can dive into the world of vintage computing with the Tandy 2000HD—a pioneering marvel of its era. This retro gem is loaded with features and upgrades from Tandy and its 3rd party groups and includes demonstrations and other software for the system. It’s built with a hard disk controller, DSQD diskette storage, and an array of features including a BUS mouse and clock/calendar card. Curious about what set the Tandy 2000HD apart? Discover its unique hardware and place in history! The system has been completely restored and includes uncommon upgrades like the ROM updates, memory expansions, 8087, external hard disk, and much more.

Old World Computing Presents - It Comes in Colors!

When Henry Ford introduced the Model T he said, "You can have it in any color as long as it's black." The computer industry through the 90s was the same, you can have it in any color as long as it’s beige or sometimes black. Apple bucked the trend in 1998 introducing the iMac with its translucent Bondi blue case and in total released the iMac in 13 unique colors (18 if you count the two variations of the “5 Flavors” models.)

This booth will showcase all 18 colors and variations of the iMac. Some on display and a few to interact with.
