It's like an episode of Hoarders, and it's time for the hoarders clean up...From Horror to Harmony. That's the mission for organising my studio/retro games room/office. This is really a vlog featuring the efforts of Octav1us and I, to restore some kind of order to my working environment. Because it's condition was one that was seriously hampering video output. Hopefully this transformation will clear a new path.

    • I had a Dick Smith Wizzard when I was a teenager. It was my first introduction to home computers. I had a ball with it. Because it was so limited with it's basic language, I learned a lot cool tricks(which I've mostly forgotten after nearly 40 years) how to do. I had the rubber membrane keyboard and tape deck additions to it. I don't think anything else came out for it here in Australia like the modem, memory expansion or printer.

  • It is time to bin the stuff that you are never going to use, there must be a way to build a system around a MiSTer emulation system that will run all the games cartridges that you have and then you can get rid of the old computers that have no use for.

  • Lmao welcome to the life of a collector and typical person who calls him self a gamer yet he barely touches any of it. For you I can understand you make videos about these items etc but there are people who call them self collectors but they are mentally ill hoarders. Seriously those type of people, you need some mental help. One example of many why I hate them is that they keep for example games that they never even touch while some actual gamer in the world would like to own that thing and play it. People like these are actual gamer's nightmare. Games are meant to be played not sit on a shelf to feed you demented ego. Also back to you don't they sell any other cars in your area just those crap VW? XD

  • Oh my god this is awesome, your quite lucky to have her, I'm surprised she is helping clean and tidy up that office 😊 it reminds me of the times that my girlfriend used to help me organize all my consoles and controllers into storage bins. Ahhh now it's just a mess again, oh well I guess I'll have to organize it again myself. I love your channel and your video's, I've been watching for around 6 years now and it brings back so many nostalgic childhood memories of my favorite games and consoles as well as computer's.

  • Just had a bit of a binge watch of your content - so I really should comment! I love the combination of technical info, nostalgia, and humour! A really, really great channel. Your next mission: Did you know that you can get a Z80 chip for about £4? Get yourself one, get a bread board....and see how far along the road of creating a working Z80 computer a la spectrum or Amstrad CPC you can get!
