Once I was trying to find out how to convert an antenna signal (Atari 800XL) to modern digital screens.

Someone suggested to buy a video recorder to 'upgrade' the antenna signal to SCART first as from there other adapters would exist.

With a "slightly unfocused depth-first approach" I quickly ended up with 20 tabs about the VHS vs Betamax story and beautiful device pictures from that era. I even nearly bought one on ebay. Thank god they don't have 1click... :-)

I just love these retro devices. And it doesn't matter which company made them, they look all great. I miss that whole culture where you programmed a computer without distraction, studied a book with sprinkled in source code listings in 9-dot printer style, and did all that just for fun.

Haha, it's that big avatar/icon of myself on the very top of the menu. Too easy...

I don't get how to find my own posts again in .

I had expected it similar and near the "Drafts" list, like an "Outgoing" or "Sent".

Any pointers beyond using Search for my own nickname?
