Welcome to ctrl-alt-rees - Vintage Tech Repairs and Mods, Retro Gaming and Atari collecting

Hello, my name is Rees and I’m a vintage computing and retro gaming enthusiast and tinkerer from the UK. You may know me from Instagram, Twitter, or maybe even YouTube.

Or maybe not.

The Purpose of this website

On this site I’ll go into more detail on my various projects and share the technical info behind what I do. I’m sharing this because Google and other websites are invaluable in helping me to tinker with my hardware projects, so I needed a place to document for the benefit of others who might find themselves in my situation.

Here’s are my documented projects and guides that may or may not have videos yet, including the most complete history of the cancelled Atari Panther anywhere online! Where I use defunct websites from the Wayback Machine, I try to rescue and reconstruct them and host them in my website archive.

This site is deliberately compiled to lightweight static HTML and hosted on GitHub Pages to keep the information within as available as possible for as long as possible. I also try to contribute stuff to The Internet Archive.

Atari's 2800 Story - How They Failed To Conquer Japan (Again)

The Atari 2800 was Atari's attempt to bring their 2600 VCS games console to Japan in 1983. Having tried and failed to crack the Japanese market 10 years previously, and finding themselves up against the newly launched Nintendo Famicom, it was always going to be an uphill battle. But this quirky and interesting take on the Atari 2600 is fascinating in its own right, so let's learn the story of how it came to be and take a closer look at the hardware and games!
