About..*

Do you do any of the following with old computers? Do you ever find yourself near Seattle, Washington?

  • Collect / Restore / Repair
  • Play games
  • Write programs
  • Develop new hardware or software
  • Help other people do any of the above

If you answered “yes” to any of those, then the SRCS is for you! We exist so you can show off your awesome stuff, bounce ideas off of fellow enthusiasts, and be inspired by one another’s achievements, plans and aspirations. No idea is too big or too small, and we’re not picky about what flavor of vintage machine you prefer.

Whether you are happiest tinkering with “Big Iron,” with home machines or laptops from the very earliest through the mid-1990s, with vintage workstations — or, really, with any old thing that computes, even down to the simplest devices with less than a kilobyte of RAM — we want to hear about it!

A Note About the SRCS’ Name:

We are aware that “retrocomputing” is normally written as a single word. Unfortunately, the initialism “SRS” is already in popular use to reference the venerable Seattle Robotics Society (no relation), so we had to extend ours a bit to avert confusion.

The case could be made that using hyphens in a neologism looks more authentically Retro anyway.
