is creating videos on restoring vintage computers and electronics.

My productions concern the preservation, modification and restoration of retro computers, game consoles and other electronics. I'd like to think of it as a sort of Electronic Archaeology. In the videos we explore troubleshooting, machine characteristics, development history, modernization and preventive maintenance. The videos I produce will usually show all phases of the restoration process and will usually include some sort of modernization. These small modifications will usually be to address know issues with the existing unit and upgrading the unit to it's max potential.

These restored computers will initially become part of my testing fleet, but once I have what I need most of the systems will be given away in drawings. Some will be among patrons here on Patreon, others will be selected from commenters on the related videos themselves.

Additionally I will be accepting donations of everything from modifications to computer systems. Revenue from this site and from advertising on the channel will be reinvested in the videos and will pay for both equipment to showcase and repair supplies.

I have lots of experience as a user, some experience as a tech, and loads of enthusiasm and passion. Even still, I do not think of myself as a professional. I am a hobbyist trying diligently to turn my hobby into a vocation. Thanks for reading this far and for helping me bring my vision to reality.

If you aren't interested in helping me monetarily I completely understand. But, if you still want to help me, and you have some old computer systems, gaming systems, kicking around in the basement, attic or closet, I will take them off your hands as a donation. Please fell free to contact me and if I can use what you want to get rid of I'll pass along my shipping information.

Thanks again, and thanks for taking the time to read through my story.

Sincerely,

M.D. vonHone
