We were going have it in January, but why wait?! We are happy to announce RetroChallenge for the month of October 2022!

RetroChallenge 2022/10 Theme Categories​

We have one theme category for this event: Endurance Challenge. This category will be judged and awarded separately from the standard entries. If your project qualifies, enter it into the theme category! Otherwise, enter in the General category and just do your own retro thing. Check out last year's List of Entries for some examples.

Endurance Challenge​

Really use your retro-computer for a month!
Getting back to the ideals of the orginal RetroChallenge, we are challenging you to use your vintage computer for a month doing normal stuff like using a word processor, sending emails, surfing the web, gaming, etc. Document what you did, what works, what doesn't, and what solutions you found. Anybody have a BBS that entrants can use for their update logs?

Prizes​

We have will hopefully have some RC 2022/10 mousepads and some more donated items for the "winners".

How to Enter​

Fill out the Entry Form for Contestants and save the link at the end in case you want to update or change your information. Let us know in the comments if you have any issues signing up.

I could create a new forum on Captain's Quarters II BBS for this if there's interest.

Oh, It looks great! So, if you added a forum / area there, everyone could post their updates in the same forum and then somebody could search by user and get just one person's entries,, I think. I will keep in contact with you to make this happen. Thanks!
