Great Throwback to Old PCs

Well edited, enjoyable reminiscences of the early days of personal computers. Discussions and interviews lead to great insights into different computer manufacturers of the time.

With the good come the bad

The information presented is great. Meanwhile the execution is awful. Countless times you’ll hear the host opening wrappers, moving paper, or just making noise while his guest is talking. Not to mention you can skip the first 30-40 minutes of every episode because it’s just the one guy talking about his equipment. Also, one episode a month is hard to get past. That being said the content itself is pretty decent

We love the HP-41, and other HP calculators and computers

As with all episodes of Floppy Days, episodes 59, and 60 were particularly interesting to me. I was so intrigued by the HP-41 series calculators, that I bought the i41CX emulator for iOS, while I’m looking for a real HP-41 CX.

Randy did a great job discussing the history of this fantastic device as well as illustrate the currently available upgrades for the HP-41.

I’ve listened to Floppy Days since the first episode, and have listened to several episodes a second time, to make sure I didn’t miss anything.

As a result of listening to Floppy Days, I now listen to more than 10 other retrocomputing podcasts. I enjoy being accompanied by Floppy Days on my daily commute, and quite often can’t wait to the next day, so that I can continue listening to each episode.

Great job Randy Kindig!
