This year also features a php forum, where you can share your experiences and adventures - the classic php bboard that is compatible with probably every web browser.

The Challengees

Following is the list of Old Computer Challengees and the chronicling of their experiences. Sorted by submission date.

Just like last year, you can submit your blog, gopher hole or gemini capsule, through our nc submission. Just run the following code and replace https://my.site with the url of your page:

$ echo "/cgi-bin/submit?https://my.site" | nc occ.deadnet.se 70

You can also manually submit your page through the occ gopher hole here or here (http proxy).

You can investigate this OPML file, which contains all the known RSS feeds of the participants above.

Get inspired by fellow old computer enthusiasts and challenge yourself to survive with old tech. You might learn something new along the way.
