The old Computer Collector Newsletter is back! Sort of.

Hello out there,
A few months ago, I posted here that the Computer Collector Newsletter was
being renamed Technology Rewind. That's still the case, but I realized that
much more than a name change was in order. CCN reached about 1,000
subscribers and that made me feel quite proud, but I couldn't keep up with
the scale. It was simply too much effort to keep publishing without any
source of income, and we (I and the contributing editors) were certainly NOT
going to charge money for this. So instead I decided to make a big change:
CCN-turned-TR would "go blog" instead.
We're quite aware that the web log format will turn off some readers. Some
people insisted that CCN be delivered in raw text as no more than 80
columns, as we were happy to oblige. That made sense two years ago. But
now we think it's equally important to help this hobby grow, and the web is
the place to do it. We'll be sorry to see any of our former readers leave,
so we ask that you give the format a try.
The new address is just http://www.technologyrewind.com but for now it's
something of a beta version. There are plenty of links to be fixed, old
articles to be uploaded, email addresses to nowhere, and who knows what
other bugs we might find.
For the new few weeks, our pace of posting new blog entries will be slow.
We'll ramp us gradually, and there may be more contributors than in the
As always, we welcome your comments and suggestions OFF-LIST please. :)
