Time To Sell Your Retro? - This Week In Retro 117

The gang is all back this week to chat about if selling old tech to fund new tech is a good idea. They also check out a modded version of the original Elite which removes the flicker seen in some versions. Finally, have you heard of the Chinese 8-bit computer called the SB2000? If you stay tuned you will have!

All this and our Community Question Of The Week.

We are kindly sponsored by Pixel Addict, the six weekly digital culture magazine. With articles about old tech, new games for old tech, hardware projects, movies and even old toys!  Check it out at https://www.pixel.addict.media/
