In the vintage collectors world we have a term called rescuing.
This is where we save a vintage computer from being tossed in the trash or being destroyed.
In this case it’s not a vintage computer, but a webpage about a vintage computer.
There was a wonderful webpage created by Andrew Davie about the Mark-8. It was written with the help of Jon Titus himself and it documented the creation of the Mark-8. For whatever reason the site was taken down and I found it in the Internet Archive Wayback Machine.
It bothered me that such a great website disappear like that, so I posed the question “Would such a site be worth rescuing?”. I mean we rescue vintage computers, why not websites about them.
I posted this question to my computer group MARCH “The Mid Atlantic Retro Computer Hobbyists”. Luckily the vintage computer world is a small one. The President of MARCH Evan Koblentz sent a few e-mails and I got permission from both Jon Titus and Andrew Davie. I then got the original HTML files in an e-mail.
I’m very proud to be able to host this page.
Many thanks go out.:
Thanks to Jon Titus and Andrew Davie for the permission to host this page.
