Wir sind ein Zusammenschluss von Leuten, die alte Technik am Leben halten.

Hast du schon mal versucht, deinen Laptop zu reparieren und dich geärgert, dass du nur ganze Baugruppen austauschen konntest? Hast du schon mal versucht, dein Betriebssystem zu verstehen und nach >10k Zeilen Code aufgegeben? Hast du es satt, alle vier Jahre ein neues Smartphone kaufen zu müssen? Das war nicht immer so. Wir bringen teils jahrzehntealte Technik mit, an der man auch heute noch die Grundlagen erlernen kann. Wir halten sie nicht nur instand, sondern entwickeln sogar Software und Hardware-Erweiterungen neu.

Komm vorbei und mach mit!


We are a cluster of people who keep old tech alive.

Have you ever tried to repair your laptop and fretted over having to swap whole modules? Have you ever tried to understand your operating system and given up a fter >10k lines of code? Are you tired of having to buy a new smartphone every four years? It wasn't always like this. We present old tech, some of it decades old, that still allows us to learn the basics. We not only keep it running but even develop new software and hardware extensions.

Come by and join us!
