30th March 2024 1 hr 7 min

Your weekly Retro Computing discussion show returns! Rollercoaster Tycoon is 25 years old? Are you a fan of any of the Tycoon games? We chat about those classic SIM games, take a look at how somebody went to extraordinary lengths to create a new old Mac and more old tech has been spotted in new media.

All of that plus many other topics are covered in Dave's Housekeeping and we get your answers to this week's Community Question Of The Week.

We are sponsored this week by Pixel Addict magazine. The current issue has a guide to the CoCo computer and Tandy in general. Plus there is a celebration of the anniversary of King's Quest! Visit for the full run down on the latest issue.
