For this year’s Retrochallenge it’s my intention to do some sort of mash up of old and new technology to see what sort of modern computing tasks I can complete with some of my retro hardware.
I want to incorporate my Raspberry Pi which has become an effective yet rather lonely media server sitting behind my T.V. and seems destined for greater things.
Over the last few months I’ve also been using and experimenting with the If This Then That (IFTTT) website which allows you to all manner of things by creating recipes to trigger events.
Combining this with Jim Brain’s excellent TCPser software, I’m imagining all sorts of fiendishly pointless exercises.
