Pretty lame that they're allowing the use of 486 stuff.
The site says an article about the winners will be published in "MLAgazine"
-- what the heck is that? I just found the site http://www.mlagazine.com
... claims to be "devoted to the history of the personal computer, the
people that made it and the people who sold it" ... but from most of its
news and links ( http://tinyurl.com/dg2x5 ) it appears to be just another
Mac groupie site.

Do you depend upon modern computers, or are you a creative spirit who can
push the limits of your old hardware in order to fulfill your everyday
needs? The Retrochallenge is where you find out.
What are these challenges? If you enjoy creating original artwork, music, or
programs on your legacy computer, then the creative challenges are for you.

gadgetry. The third challenges judges how well you could communicate with
the outside world on a retrocomputer.
