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 things are, it’s sort of like CB/two-way radio, except A LOT more sophisticated.)

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. I also lurk on the IRC Freenode Network under the nickname LordDragon. You can find me in #coco_chat where we chat about retro 80s Tandy Color Computer stuff or in ##notundernet where a group of my friends hang out to 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! Thanks 😀
