Hack a Day low-fi edition!

It’s no secret that we’re giant nerds here at Hackaday. We’re not the kind of people to pull out the ‘ol Apple ][ to play Oregon Trail; we’re the kind of people that pull out that old computer because our favorite Forth interpreter is still on 5 1/4″ floppys.

We thought it would be cool to have a retro version of Hack a Day, made especially for those old computers you’re storing in your attic, garage, or your parent’s basement. No, we’re not talking about your 5-year-old Dell, this site is for your Atari ST, Apple Lisa, and IBM Model 5051.

To make it easier on those old boxxen, we’ve created a low-fi edition of Hack a Day without all the messy javascript, css, and php older browsers (and computers with kilobytes of memory) choke on. Think of this as a challenge; what’s the oldest, or lowest spec hardware you have that can load this page? An old PalmPilot? A C64? Your own TTL computer?

If you manage to pull this page up with some old hardware, send in a pic and we’ll feature it on the low-fi editions of Hack a Day. If it’s cool enough, we’ll put it on the main page.
