        Knowing the nature of this folk here, some might find this
interesting. Sadly, Newtons, even the 100, fall months after the early
1993 cutoff of hardware equipment.

Do you depend upon modern computers, or are you a creative spirit who
can push the limits of your old hardware in order to fulfill your
everyday needs? The Retrochallenge is where you find out. This
competition promotes the use of vintage hardware by establishing up
three challenges. You are encouraged to enter any or all of theses
challenges, to judge the creative works of other participants, or simply
join in the discussions on our mailing list.

What are these challenges? If you enjoy creating original artwork,
music, or programs on your legacy computer, then the creative challenges
are for you. Simply do what you normally do, then submit your work to be
judged by your peers. The second challenge is simply using a qualifying
computer through the month of July, in a competition to see can survive
a month without the latest in gadgetry. The third challenges judges how
well you could communicate with the outside world on a retrocomputer.

So what is the prize? The excitement of participating in the challenge
(everyone gets that one), and the respect of your peers. In order to
help you gain the recognition of your peers, MLAgazine has gratiously
offered to publish an article about the winner.
