Subject: RetroChallenge 2008

Retrocomputing enthusiasts the World over are cordially invited to
participate
in the 2008 RetroChallenge, commencing July 1, 2008.

RetroChallenge is an opportunity for fans of "obsolete" platforms to
spend a
month pushing their retrocomputing limits in the company of like-
minded geeks.
Participants set their own goal(s) and typically keep the community
apprised of
progress via weblogs or on the Retro BBS.

Challenges are as unique as the individual RetroChallenger -- in the
past
participants have programmed games; created music and video content;
performed
dangerous hardware hacks or simply spent a month trying to get an old
computer
to boot.

RetroChallenge is not so much about competing, as it is about sharing.
Think of
it as an on-line show-and-tell for RetroGeeks. Because the individual
challenges
are self-posed, the RetroChallenge is equally well-suited to hoary old
wizards
and tender newbies alike. It's not about winning, but about *doing*.

RetroChallenge is open to *all* retrocomputing platforms. For the sake
of
simplicity (and to avoid the usual endless debate), the criteria for
what
constitutes a "retro system" is anything older than 10 years, though
obviously the older the better.
