  • TV-Show for Nerds: HALT AND CATCH FIRE

    Hey guys,

    I want this amazing TV-Show. It is not very popular, it is special.
    They are telling stories about the 80s, when the PC made his firsts steps.

    I have seen a little bit of this show. I think it is a tech-centric drama. So there will be artistic leaway. Though based on facts, no telling how tight the tether.
    It was pretty cool, the bit I saw showed one of the prototype mockups. If I remember correctly it was all mounted to plywood. The PC has come so far since those days.
    I thought my TI-99 4A was all the stuff. You could back it up to an audio cassette(if you were lucky).

      Watch it Dude, if you like the 80s style with the fast and wild technical developement.

      A very good show, but not for everyone.
