About Me

So based on the name of my site, you’ve probably guessed that my name is Todd and that I have a passion for technology! Seriously though, I grew up in the 80s and 90s when the world was exploding with new digital technologies and so you can imagine why these days I have such nostalgia for anything retro and 8-bit. I went to school for Computer Science and later worked with embedded systems writing code for microcontrollers and the like. For fun I like to play around with homebrew solar power and 12 volt off-grid setups or write programs for my favorite 8-bit computer system. I’m also an active Amateur Radio operator, AKA Ham Radio. (If you have no idea what either of those terms mean, it’s sort of like a fancier version of the old CB radios).

Full quarantine hair in effect!
Modern tech to the left, retro tech to the right!

Contact Info and Links

If you want to reach out to me, you can leave a comment on the blog or send me an email at todd@tektodd.com. All my other social links like Facebook and whatnot are down at the bottom of the page. I also lurk on the IRC Libera Network under the nickname LordDragon if you want to go oldschool. You can usually find me in #coco_chat, where we talk about retro 80s Tandy Color Computer stuff, or in ##notundernet where me and a few friends just have a general chitchat.

I also have a YouTube Channel where I show off various software and hardware projects I am working on, as well as random guitar covers and other things I find interesting. Feel free to give it a look. 😁
