new stuff for old stuff

a product directory listing new hardware, software and books for fans of retro / 8-bit microcomputers.

This site is very new. It is gaining content daily. It's a hobby project started by Shiela Dixon aka Shirley Knott of PeacockMedia Software.

Does mention of Commodore 64, Vic20, Sinclair ZX81 and Spectrum, BBC Micro, Acorn electron or Dragon 32 raise your pulse? Did you enjoy the heady feeling of potential and unlimited possibility at the sight of a BASIC flashing cursor? Did you love working so directly with the hardware? Maybe you're new to 8-bit computing and discovering these things for the first time.

There are some amazing people producing new accessories, software and games for these computers and I aim to list them here.

You can help by submitting products or news that fit in with the aims of this site. Links for submitting products and suppliers are in the footer below.
