“Well hello there”

Well hello there,  my name is Adrian Black and I am a retro computer hobbyist.  I tinker and fix old computers on my YouTube channel.  You’re probably here because you watch my videos, but if not, this is my channel: https://www.youtube.com/AdriansDigitalBasement

This site is a place for me to share links to the tools and products I use (they aren’t sponsored links) and each of these are my personal choice or simply what I have and use here in the basement.   I have also included a link to my GitHub repository where I will occasionally share useful code as well as a link to my upload section on archive.org.

I am still amazed at the generosity of my viewers and their donations and  I have dedicated a second channel (Adrian’s Digital Basement ][ ) to unboxing packages received in the basement.    

If you have a donation for the channel please visit the about section on my Youtube channel or click the CONTACT section of this website.  If you would like to sponsor me on Patreon or purchase merchandise, please use the menu options above.   

As always, stay healthy, stay safe and feel free to sign my guest book to let everyone know you were here.
