RetroCom is the website for computers from the 1980's era (although we may encroach into the 1970's or early 1990's).
Here you can find articles and pictures relating to the computers that shaped the home computing revolution. But hey, we don't just do computers, there's stuff on software, magazines & peripherals as well!
If you have any old hardware, software, manuals, books or magazines that you would like to donate then drop me an email and I'll try to arrange collection (if you're in Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland) or postage.
Thanks for visiting us.
Social media bar
I have just installed a social media bar on the website. You can check out our Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Youtube pages by clicking on the sliders at the top right of the page.
I've just set up SobiPro and created a database for computer specifications. I'm sure that I'll create other databases for other things too.
I'll be populating it with some entries over the next while and expanding on these as I research more.
If you want to contribute please post suggestions in the forum.

Retrocom.org has just migrated to a new server and upgraded to Joomla 3.
I was starting to exceed the limits of my hosting package so I decided to move RetroCom.org over to another hosting package and also take the opportunity to upgrade Joomla at the same time.
Retrocom.org was created by Colin Barnes in February 2008.
It is hosted on UK2.net servers and UK2.net are also the registration agent.
The latest version of the site users Joomla 3
