Episode two of The Retro Reboot Show is ready for your viewing pleasure! Today I’m talking voxel graphics in Monkey Island and DooM, then we look at an Apple I that sold for an insane amount of moolah but it looks like Pacman took a bite out of it!
Other items on the show include a new Atari 2600 version of the graphic adventure from the 90s “Myst”, two articles from Byte magazine from “Today in 1982”, covering the Osborne 1 computer and No-Code software of the 80s. Not to mention Overclocking a Raspbperri Pi Pico beyond it’s capable limits, captain’, Compuserve RLE graphics from 1987 is back to our screens in 2022 and an interview with Cliff Lawson – Amstrad’s proper apprentice! Lots of fun for everyone! Check it out!

As a reader of Al’s Geek Lab’s posts, I’d like to give you an opportunity to send me any questions (in the comments section) for an upcoming ask me anything video. Ideally your questions are related to retro computing, infosec, Linuxy / FOSS things, YouTube, but feel free to literally ask me anything! I won’t set a date for the AMA, I’ll just wait for enough interesting questions to come in, so go on! Don’t be shy! Let me know what you’d like to hear from me and I’ll do my darnedest to answer your questions in a video soon! Idk I think it sounds like a fun idea!
