LOW←TECH MAGAZINE

quote [ This is a solar-powered website, which means it sometimes goes offline

Low-tech Magazine refuses to assume that every problem has a high-tech solution. A simple, sensible, but nevertheless controversial message; high-tech has become the idol of our society. ]

I love micro computing too!
