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.

Amiga Story | Nostalgia Nerd

What goes up, must come down... Welcome to the story of the Commodore Amiga. This is part 1 of a 2 part documentary exploring the history and story of the mighty Amiga from its conception through to its buyout by Commodore. This episode deals with the "up" part of the story, and takes place during the 1980s.

Sony's Clever but Flawed PlayStation Copy Protection--And How They Might Have Fixed It

You can support this channel on Patreon! Link below The original PlayStation is a pretty neat thing. Using the CD as a storage medium was a smart move. But, Sony needed to add anti-piracy features to the disc to prevent miscreants from making bootleg copies of Crash Bandicoot. This video tells the story of how that works, why it wasn’t infallible, and also proposes a potentially impervious solution (24 years late, though). Here’s that paper on reading optical discs. It’s a good read: https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/f772/6d20c43b22fb13f8788c8c64df2dbe9fa44f.pdf You can support this channel on Patreon! Patrons of the channel are what keep...

TDL- Do not DE-LID an AMD FX9590 CPU! (Already dead CPU)

Teardown Lab - Do not DE-LID an AMD FX9590 CPU! (Already dead CPU) Says it all in the title, DO NOT REMOVE THE LID ON AN AMD CPU, especially a £200 octacore one! Luckily this was already faulty and had been really unreliable for a long time. For the easily bored jump to 14:00 ish! I really would not advise anyone to bother trying to remove the lid or heatspreader on a modern CPU. This bad boy spent 18 months running at over temperature, the silicon was fused to the lid by that point and would never come of cleanly. Amazon has working versions...

Using a 56k Modem in 2017! | Nostalgia Nerd

Remember the warming sounds of internet dial-up? Trying to get through to your internet provider, without an engaged tone. Trying to get a decent connection speed. Downloading GIFS, GIFS, GIFS.

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...

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.

Why Were Pentium 2's on Cards? [Byte Size] | Nostalgia Nerd

With the Pentium II, Intel designed a CPU and cache which remained closely integrated, but were mounted on a printed circuit board, called a Single-Edged Contact Cartridge (SECC). In this episode of Byte size, I discuss the reasons behind this switch and also go into details on cache operations in the Pentium Pro, Xeon and Celeron processors, and how they differed from the Pentium II model. ☟Subcribe☟ https://www.youtube.com/user/nostalgianerdvideos?sub_confirmation=1 ✊Support Me! ✊ Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/nostalgianerd?ty=h Visit my eBay Shop: http://ebay.to/1QQpYyy Buy From Amazon (affiliate): http://amzn.to/1OzCQWR ★Nerd Social★ Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/nostalnerd Face: http://www.facebook.com/nostalnerd Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/nostalgianerd Web: http://www.nostalgianerd.com ★Equipment★ Nikon D3200 with 40mm Macro Corel Video Studio Ultimate X7 Corel Paint Shop Pro X6 Blue Snowball Microphone ♜Resources♜ Pentium 2 images courtesy of...

Mystery eBay PC hides SURPRISE | Nostalgia Nerd

Mystery eBay boxes. They're a thing. Well how about a mystery eBay beige PC BOX? Now, that's what I'm talking about. This is a 1990s IBM PC Compatible, I purchased from eBay for £56.

Why CTRL ALT DEL? [Byte Size] | Nostalgia Nerd

CTRL ALT DELETE. Now there's a key combination we're almost all familiar with. CTRL-ALT-DEL (or the three finger salute as it's known) used to instantly restart your computer, which was useful when an application crashed or you just wanted to clear your memory and start all over again. CTRL ALT DELETE would go on to be used for login and task management purposes under Windows protected mode, and it's been with us ever since. I've created this video after noticing some news stories about Bill Gates considering the key combination a mistake (http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/bill-gates-microsoft-travel-back-in-time-control-alt-delete-comments-a7962131.html), so this is a quick exploration of how...

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.

What did we use before USB? | Nostalgia Nerd

Welcome to the evolution of USB... The path from the original IBM PC to now, has been a relatively short one, but still one tangled in webs of cables.

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...

Commodore 64 Story & Review (C64); RE:Collections | Nostalgia Nerd

The Commodore 64, otherwise known as the C64, C-64 or CBM64... What can I say about this machine that hasn't already said. It's an amazing piece of kit which has stood the test of time admirably.
