I expertly restore, repair and, and sometimes upgrade computers as my computer hobby...
then I'll post them here, and when I can, give them away plus I'll post videos as some are sold to help cover costs!

Below is another one selling for less just to cover costs.

What was posted last month for Halloween!

A YouTube video I made Halloween night is now posted for a fun diversion!
Full Version of A Halloween Video for Retro Gamer Fun on Macintosh

In my newest video featuring Steve Jobs, who says it's important to
ask for help, I'm telling visitors, "All persons who donate anything
here will be automatically entered into my next Vintage Mac Giveaway!

As fun and as cool as that is, imagine this... If I only have 5 people
join my Patreon Membership by my next vintage computer Giveaway, the odds
of winning are 1 in 5. If only 6 people have donated by my PayPal link
then the 6 are added to the 5 and the odds are 1 in 11. If you donate any
retro computer or parts, then I add you to the list and the odds are 1 in 12.

Where else could you get that kind of odds? Not in any sweepstakes or giveaway
I know of. So people can continue to call me crazy, but as Steve says in the video,
"I just ask, ... most people never ask and that's what separates sometimes the people
who do things from the people who just dream about them."

A great way to help save vintage tech is to mail your retro computers to my non-profit.
Join the mission & your name can be a Film Star Credit in a future posted video!

Fun Tech Projects!

Before I retired from a professional computer services career, I taught Apple Macintosh Seminars
in over 70 US Cities, I used my Bondi Blue iMac G3 to make my Seminar Presentations,
but my 100+ Apple Specs History Collection was on my old SCSI drive.
I had to upgrade my iMac with an SCSI add-in that I put in the secret mezzanine slot,
(this mezzaniene slot was a Molex 52760-1609 connector hidden inside on the motherboard).

Here is just one example of what that strange slot was for. I purchased an SCSI card from a
company in Germany called Formac. They called the card, "Formac iProRAID Ultra Wide SCSI"
It cost me almost $200 USD plus shipping costs. I had a lot of backup files and old software,
so it was very useful to get all my 68030 stuff into the G3 from my older Mac SCSI drives!

Click for a pop-up showing where the Formac Card was installed.

Now that I'm retired, I have fun restoring vintage computers and posting YouTube Videos.
Since I'm still sort of new there I like to also watch other creators already on YouTube.
When fellow Computer Hobbyists might ask me, "Who do you follow", I tell them one channel
is @JDW- who makes some of the best vintage and retro restoration videos for hobbyist like me.
I am not related to JDW, but I do recommend those in-depth videos. Click the pic to see more.

See other creators like @JDW- on YouTube
I found a modern use for older Apple Cinema Displays, (especially the 30" model & version
similar to the picture below). These use Dual Link DVI, and the Apple Dual-DVI Video Card
will drive these monitors in machines the way Apple intended. But did you know you can get the
display to work with many modern Computers? This includes PCs when you use an Active Adapter
like the Club 3D CAC-1510 USB Type C to DVI-D DUAL LINK Active Adapter. It has to be an Active
Adapter like a Club 3D to process the DVI-D DUAL LINK video signal correctly.

See a Cinema Display & Recomended Club 3D Active Adapter.

Note: I have the Club 3D and have connected the Apple Cinema Display via USB C to send the
correct signals even from my Samsung Galaxy Book2 (with SnapDragon 8x CPU and Windows 10).
A pretty cool use for an older Apple product and of course it works with newer MacBooks too.

I think too many owners do not know how to keep vintage computers working or they
simply just throw out all old technology. But I would rather restore and give away old
collectible computers than see unique vintage and retro items end up in a landfill.

It's OK if you are not a geek and don't understand computers yet.

I can show you how computers do compute with RAM .

My baby boomer generation was the first to grow up in a technology-dominated world, and us

A true story in 1983 at Tinker AFB, OK where a WIMS Team was based and I was a Fire Inspector there.

WIMS Team Notes

I've no pics of a WIMS (Wang Information Management) system, except this unclassified off brand terminal.

Old Terminal Style Computer System

Tinker ran a multimillion-dollar test to decide how the US Military would use Wang computers distributed
at many offices on Tinker Air Force Base. The original Wang Company Programmer came over from Japan to
program the test systems on the base. He brought his 17-year-old teenage son, who spent his time on
32 green screen games that he put on the system. That was how they used to test computer responsiveness.
It was rumored that when he left the base, he left the games on. We discovered them plus how to play.

Old Terminal Computer Games

One day, while entering in Inspection Reports a friend was frustrated and hit the keyboard with "ZZZ".
After I saw him get into it, I thought if he could find this with just "ZZZ", I decided to try "YYY".
Sure enough, up came "32 Big Beautiful Games". While he played Hang Man, I played Star-Trek!

Luckily, my friend and I did not get demoted for hacking, but when the Wing commander called our office,
he said to the Master Sergeant in charge, "Several Generals and a couple of Full Bird Colonels who flew
in to oversee the systems tests just remotely watched terminals playing HangMan and StarTrek."

Coincidentally, this all happened before the movie, "War Games", which came out on June 3rd, 1983.
But it occurred amazingly within a US Military Base by 2 Air Force Airmen and did not start outside of it.

War Games, the Movie

START OF NEW QUOTED POST by my little sister, Patty, (Trish Mathews on Facebook)

On this day, the first Personal Computer was released by IBM. Also known as the IBM Model 5150,
the first PC was a revolutionary microcomputer that used an Intel 8088 processor, Microsoft
MS-DOS operating system, and an open architecture that allowed third-party peripherals and software.

1981 IBM PC

Nerdy Fact: The first IBM PC had a distinctive sound when it was turned on, which was generated
by the speaker on the motherboard. The sound was composed of three tones: a low-pitched tone of
440 Hz for 300 milliseconds, followed by a silence of 100 milliseconds, followed by a high-pitched
tone of 880 Hz for 300 milliseconds. This sound sequence was designed to indicate that the power
supply and the speaker were working properly. However, some users found the sound annoying or [even]
alarming, and some even tried to disable it by cutting ... wires or covering them with tape" END QUOTE

Thanks little sister Patty, but don't forget to see this pic  'Apple Computer from 1979 used in 1981'...
IBM PC Manual was written on an Apple II
(I'm not sure, but he kinda looks like Paul Shindler from The Computer Chronicles)

Donated to Lucky New Owner by ComputerHobbyShop.com
The lucky new owner in this giveaway took ownership of a classic Commodore system and
did not even have to pay for shipping, (like my Gold Planet Saving Patreon Members).

Wait! Did you actually give a vintage Commodore 128 Computer System away?

Yes and here is why I'll do it again.

I don't like that too many old computers end up in landfills because their
owners do not know how to keep them working or they consider them obsolete.

Rather than see them go to a landfill and pollute the earth,
I choose to repair and restore vintage or retro style computers to go to new owners!

I also plan to let my upgraded computers sell on eBay for very little to keep your costs low!

Amazon is not the only place you get bad service sometimes. Some people think that the
negative feedback is what to watch for on places like eBay, but it is often the neutral
feedback that can tell you even more about a seller's truly bad attitude toward the customers
that a seller did not want to help at all. Click to see clearly the poor feedback example below.

Reviews and News

An AMD Ryzen Review and recommended X570 ASROCK Motherboard

Counting cores and straining to max CPU speeds is the familiar task for anyone needing more power at less cost. The good news is, the AMD Ryzen can check off all the boxes for the serious power user while staying far away from the higher cost of a Threadripper Workstation. You can save with compatible motherboards & the latest BIOS.

What specific CPU do I recommend? I give a 5 Star Score to the AMD Ryzen 7 3800X.
June 23rd, 2020 Post, Computer Hobby Shop
It is simply the best CPU this side of an expensive workstation. You'll get the most bang for your buck while still seeing shorter compile times and faster project completions, especially when matched with an X570 ASROCK Steel Legend. A 2700 with a B450M motherboard from htcgo worked great and a 3800X and X570 Motherboard gave us an added speed bump. If this posted review sounds like a commercial for AMD, they do deserve all this praise.
All my tests made me happy to endorse the Ryzen 3800X. AMD has a real winning CPU here.

Blue 7th Gen 32GB Apple iPod touch! Below are the technical specs from Apple.com.

Previous post, a Refurbished Super Fast MacBook Pro!

An Apple Intel Core i5 with Storage updated
to a brand new 2021 SSD

I spent the money shown above
to make a better MacBook Pro for you.

Here's your chance to help the planet by
buying a Green Earth & Eco-Friendly

Installing and updating Catalina went
fast with the upgraded 16GB RAM.

Ports shown left to right are, 1 Magesafe
Power Jack, 1 Ethernet, 1 Firewire 800,
1 Thunderbolt 2, 2 USB 3.0, a Camera
Card Reader, & Headphone Jack

There is plenty of space left in this
Brand New Western Digital 480GB SSD.

You'll love using the working DVD Drive for
movies + moving music CDs to iTunes.

After getting the message below, I
finished installing all current updates.

The lid opens and closes easily & the hinges work great.

In almost every review regarding the best laptops, this Macbook Pro is always the main challenger.
Supported by an Intel i5 processor with a speed of 3 GHz Boost and 2.5 GHz base, [upgraded with 16 GB] DDR3 RAM,
Intel HD Graphics 4000, and support for up to 2TB of hard disk memory
this laptop is one of the best laptops of all time.

(Tech Reviews, Oct 29, 2020).

This MacBook Pro comes with a brand new
Magsafe charger as shown below.

Besides coming with iTunes you also get Pages,
(Apple's app like MS Word)

Plus Keynote, another Apple app,
(like MS PowerPoint)

And Apple's Numbers app,
(a program like MS Excel).

You can use a power saving 4K TV,
or you might want to use any standard HDTV,
but you don't need it for the Mac laptop to work.

December Christmas PC Laptop Deal

     See who bought this HP EliteBook that sold for hundreds of $$$ less than when new...
December sold post from the Computer Hobby Shop

Originally it cost over $1,000.00 when new, but I asked only $125.00.
Post from the Computer Hobby Shop

New studies now show that most people trend to view websites via mobile devices.

I'm rebelling against trends with my favorite way to surf the net. My PC connects to a large screen 4K TV and I didn't have to spend large on a second screen with a previous model 50" Vizio Family Home Theater/Game Room HDTV. It even supports a max of 1080p resolution.
Surprisingly, it is as much fun to use as my newer 4K TV.

2/21/2020 Post for the Computer Hobby Shop

I use it for website editing on both Macs and PCs as it has 3 HDMI ports, like a newer 4K HDTV.

It also has VGA & Composite Video ports for older game machines. I've also used it on a Mac mini and
Mac Pro plus an Apple TV and my Gaming PC too. It has 1080P resolution and a newer Vizio has 4K.

(Shout out to Vizio! Sponsor a review here of your TVs to increase TVs sold as PC monitors).

Details are posted for my MacBook Air that sold very fast for $300 less than normal...
Not to rub it in, but the savings missed was on a pretty 2015 Custom Apple Core i7 shown below.

ComputerPro2000 sold it very fast where eBay & PayPal also offer a 30 day money-back guarantee.

Wow, that last post for a green earth PC finished at 44 bids!
When we work hard we'll want to take a break to play a few games too! Here is a nice DSi XL.
1/23/2020 Post for the Computer Hobby Shop

To prep it for sale, a simple video
demos this DSi XL Console!

Honorable mention goes to naymare-7, who just purchased this on eBay. For him or anyone else interested, here's good news about this DSi XL. If you want to install a lot more fun stuff, I found a video with links to websites, that shows you how to mod it for root access. It seems a lot of people are doing that and you can essentially jail break it to load more games and unlock a lot more of it's features than was previously possible when softmodding this DSi XL console. Although I have not done this yet, it sounds like a lot of fun, which is why I built this hobby website to begin with. I'll see you next time. Won't that be fun!

In case anyone else wants to know, I received a question on my Dell Intel Core i5 with Fast SSD Drive.
eBayer kevigadsde_0 wanted to know, ... 'will your computer be able to hook up to my hdmi tv or [does it have to] be a computer montior?' I replied, 'No problem, you just need a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter. You could also adapt DVI to HDMI, but trust me, DisplayPort to HDMI is better ... the adapters are cheap, as found on eBay...'
I have converted this PC from "BuyItNow" to an auction and it is at $9.95 at the time of this post.

What, you didn't get to bid? Sorry if you missed it! Don't want to miss out again?

I never thought I'd see 2020. I was born around the time that Sputnik was launched into space.

1st Post in 2020, Computer Hobby Shop 01/13/2020

I remeber the late 50s and early 60s were times when many thought the earth would be destroyed by nuclear war. But today the trend is more towards Arctic ecosystems protection from oil spills and black carbon emissions.

1st Post in 2020, Computer Hobby Shop

I grew up on a farm & fought for the preservation of wild life. This attitude of a green earth was new to many people, but I followed it into my future work with computers and I just made

I'm glad, but so more people get a chance, in the future I'd ask followers to only buy once per post.

12/4/2019: On this date, I've been refurbishing used PCs & Macs just for the fun of it and
I've just finished 4 PCs and 1 Mac. See the Refurbished Intel Core i7s listed below.

Do you know?

What IBM geeks used to gather in User's Groups to help each other out with mainframe issues?

ANSWER ... SHARE was a 1955 group of aerospace industry users of IBM mainframes and is the oldest group still active. Most all of those once popular user's groups & club meetings have long since moved to the Internet as 'THE' source of help.

When Amazon sponsors it, I can help you look for a good tech job.
Many tech oriented jobs exist with
"specific goals & strategic openings for students".

Tech workers who speak a second language are needed as the demand for bilingual workers is rising.

When I taught tech seminars, it was with all expenses paid as I had traved to teach a thousand + clients
in the lower 48 states, Alaska, Hawaii + Canada. Traveling trainers get served by a lot of flight attendants.


I always enjoyed traveling, especially to share my best tech ideas.
My success helping people has encouraged me to post on this site and share my expert skills!


Eventually, live seminars became less popular than the Internet and times changed.
More and more IT work was local and I'd get reviews like past and present ones posted below.


I later worked daily as a Technical Trainer for the U.S. Dept. of Labor.

There, the real challenge seemed to be getting people to beleive in what they can do!

It was shut down when Covid-19 hit in early 2020.

For a future post, is there any retro Gamer's machine you'd like to hear about? Let me know by email.
