• Paleotronic Magazine

    From Ben Collver to All on Sat Mar 23 21:49:50 2024
    Tonight i discovered Paleotronic Magazine. The first issue is epic.
    It seems to have hit many retro "happy places" in a single issue.

    There's an interview with Jason Scott.

    There's a BASIC program listing for Tetris on the Apple II.

    There's an article about MOD music, followed by an article about
    interactive fiction.

    Toward the end is a list of resources with sections for usenet,
    mailing lists, and BBS's.

    The BBS section refers to:

    * telnetbbsguide.com
    * A 80's Apple II BBS
    * Absinthe BBS
    * Capitol Shrill
    * Telehack (not technically a BBS)
    * YYZ BBS

    Issues can be found at:

    This looks like a great magazine, I hadn't heard of it before, thank you for sharing! A good bit of reading material here to enjoy.

    What a riot!
    That's an awesome find. I was just reading in a teleconference maybe? Someone was getting a DiskMag together again and I was looking forward to that.I can't remember who, what, when, where... naturally but it was in the last month so hopefully that project is progressing.
    It's wild to see BBS listings in print, and I've been trying to think of good ways to get the publics attention too. I made a QR for the Telnet Directory listing for my site figuring I could start to place <litter> that around a little. I don't know where the magic line between organic growth and advertising falls.
    Excellent find again,

    Really great! I'm also digging the interview with Woz and Confessions of a Disk Cracker! :P

    Thanks for the link, I'm grabbing all the issues!

    It's been kicking around for a while. One of the editors used to pass
    through FSX, Melody I think. I've only read the one issue, #4, it has a article on TLP in it.
