Welcome to RetroHub!

This website is intended to allow you to write content and engage with the Internet on computers that cannot handle the modern Web. It is as simple as possible, built with plain HTML, no CSS or JavaScript involved! This makes the site accessible and usable from vintage computers and ancient web browsers, so get out that old 486 and make it useful again!

Note: this is in a highly alpha stage! Feel free to make an account and post; only mind the mess while everything is in testing and development.

The internet didn't even exist until almost a decade after this IBM PC/AT was made, but you can use this website on it nonetheless!

The goal of this site is to be so lightweight, it'll work almost anywhere. Your toaster, smart fridge, ancient laptop from 1992, or anything else. And there's no Google Analytics to slow your browser to a crawl and gather information about you, either!

No broadband? No problem!

You don't need a crazy fast internet connection to load THIS website! Just plug that phone cable into your dial-up modem, and you're good to go!

Join the RetroHub IRC Server!

RetroHub now has an IRC Server! Use this server to talk about all things retrocomputing!

Use your favorite IRC client to connect to the server at on any of the ports 6665-6667.

The server is currently EXPERIMENTAL. Any issues should be reported in the #retrohubsupport channel, or on the IRC server release post. The support channel is not monitored 24/7, so it's probably better to write a comment on the release post.

NOTE: This server is intended for discussion of retrocomputing. It is a politics-free server. Any discussion of political issues will result in an instant ban.
