I'm Nostalgia Nerd... I have an addiction to Nostalgia & things often categorised as "nerdy". I talk about software, hardware, games, toys, programs, magazines and other things from the 70s, 80s and 90s, sometimes with a liberal amount of dry humour. The channel's main focus is computer related items from the 80s & 90s. Feel free to visit my website, other social accounts listed below.

Sinclair ZX Spectrum Story - Birth of a Classic | Nostalgia Nerd

The ZX Spectrum is 35 years old on 23rd April 2017, and it also holds a very special place in my heart, so it's time to wish it a happy birthday... It's the machine I grew up with and which led me to creating this very channel. I've covered the Sinclair ZX Spectrum in the past, but frankly I didn't do it justice, so we're revisiting Sir Clive's iconic 8 bit home micro in detail, starting with The Sinclair Years in this two part documentary. This first part explores Clive Sinclair's early years, from his childhood to the formation of...

GOD MODE UNLOCKED - Hardware Backdoors in x86 CPUs

This talk will demonstrate what everyone has long feared but never proven: there are hardware backdoors in some x86 processors, and they're buried deeper than we ever imagined possible. While this research specifically examines a third-party processor, we use this as a stepping stone to explore the feasibility of more widespread hardware backdoors.

The Mystery of the Media Mega Drive | Nostalgia Nerd

The Sega Mega Drive, otherwise known as the Sega Genesis is a popular console. It came in various iterations such as the Mega Drive II, the Multi Mega and even clones. But what in the name of almighty glory is the Media Mega Drive? Well, I didn't know either, so I took a look and then went on quest to find it's origin and it's journey, so I could lay to rest the story of this "rare" console... The Media Mega Drive. Is it a console knock off? Console rip off? A Mega Drive in disguise? A Chinese Mega Drive? Well...

The Playstation 2 TV | Nostalgia Nerd

What? Sony made a PS2 TV? A television with a built in Playstation? Yes, that's right, following in the footsteps of the SNES, NES and even Dreamcast televisions, we have a Sony Bravia LCD TV, with a Playstation 2 slapped onto it's base. Otherwise known as the KDL-22PX300 I thought it was time to take a closer look at this UK exclusive.

Sinclair ZX81 (Timex 1000) Grandaddy of Computers | Nostalgia Nerd

The Sinclair ZX81 (or the Timex 1000 as it was sold in the USA), is in many ways, the father of the home micro computer scene. Although it wasn't the first machine Sinclair released, it was certainly the one to achieve significant success and make a massive impact on the lives of British households (and a more limited impact in the States and other countries). The ZX81 delivered micro computing for the everyday man, as it was priced to be affordable regardless of the sacrifices this meant to hardware. Incorporating only 1KB of RAM and a Z80 processor, it...

Why you Shouldn't Low Level Format Your Hard Drive | Nostalgia Nerd

Hmmm, it's that nagging question; quick format vs full format? full format vs low level format?.... Do you remember formatting your hard drive in DOS?... The Hard Drive, in it's IBM PC Compatible format has been with us since, what? 1980? Data in the early days was encoded using MFM, which was updated to RLL, but in that time, other things also changed. Like what Low Level Formatting actually meant. Because originally Low Level Format actually meant writing the sector boundaries to your disk. IDE hard drives rarely let you do this, and doing so may have actually damaged your...

Why Everyone is Angry about PlayStation Classic | Nostalgia Nerd

Well, ok, not EVERYONE is angry, but most are, and I think it's down to the principle of the matter more than anything else. So, Sony have recently launched their Playstation Classic Mini console, and it's not unfair to say that reception has been cold. That's not to say that it's a total pile of crap, and you can have a lot of fun with it. But looking through the firmware source code, it's clear there were games on Sony's agenda, which may have made it into the Classic, but didn't. These hidden Playstation classic games will feature in this...

Insider Reveals Alien Technology That Will Bring Some Truly World Changing Devices

In our obsession with questions like "When will Disclosure come" , we often fail to ask more interesting questions about what might happen afterwards.

What scientific knowledge might extraterrestrials possess, what technology could have developed from this knowledge, and what might happen when we get access to such technology? Nick Pope uses his inside knowledge to explore some truly world changing paradigm shifting possibilities.

*Script written by Javier Angulo Vito Corleone used to say ‘family matters’ and, in Azerbaijan, they followed this advice to the letter. Aliyev family means everything in this country. They control politics and economics with an iron fist. But despite all of this, this country is on fashion in Europe. They’ve poured lots of money sponsoring sports events like the European Cup or soccer teams like Atletico de Madrid. They are present in music festivals like the Eurovision song contest and they are part of the Council of Europe despite not even being European. Why are they so loved by Brussels? The...
