your head on christmas i think we've all been there with family sometimes but yeah welcome to retro recipes welcome lady fractic thank you for having me hi you're welcome uh lady claus of course makes more sense now and hopefully all of you have been doing a lot of chip dipping especially at christmas yeah i know that we've all put on a few uh grams pounds stone kilos bites certainly a few bites so with that said i think there's only one thing left would you like to do the honours and inaugurate our reindeer dog reindog look we haven't tried this yet you look so pretty you gonna keep it on if i hold it she says no thank you are you she look cute both of them i mean okay well we'll see what how that goes but i think we should just crack on we have got so many packages here well that didn't work um and just a reminder as always with these if there's something i can't use on the channel we're going to do an ebay charity auction our last auction was for cura orphanage in kenya raised over a thousand pounds for them and of course was the idea of chris blight from team 17. very good cause does he still have worms i think we've all all got worms after that series yeah um and anything we can use i'm gonna turn into a video and do something fun to give back to you guys so that's the plan ladies first as they say do you want to pick the first packarge since they're so beautifully wrapped i want this one we need a cutty cutty thing it's the technical term that'll cut your tongue off and that will spite your face one for you and one for me hey okay let's move these aside we've got the lovely fusion annual for 2021 and fusion very recently secured the rights to zzap 64 and crash magazine there's going to be new quarterly issues of both of these coming up you can subscribe i'll put the link in the description and i'm even going to be one of the reviewers for zzap 64 which is a christmas miracle a festivus miracle happy festivus and happy hanukkah let's go ready could be dog treats a teeny tiny cd how cute ah a drill template this is all i've ever wanted a good drill template um these are the least retro thing we could have started with it's a turret camera without going into too much detail uh i am planning a very special prank video yes yes yes yes so these were a very kind donation from annke they're going to help us set up this prank you'll see what happens when we finally get around to that after covid very exciting very exciting to be after covert uh so thank you i should say thank you thank you very much all right antlers trying some treat bribery now some reindeer treats good yeah you've forgotten all about your antlers from annke to antlers antler very much you're welcome yeah are you paralyzed are you just happy okay um next up i guess it's my turn right it is ladies second tiny little package i've got here this is from 8-bit ventures it's going to be slightly easier to unwrap apart from the dog hair on my it's uh antler hair and i mean reindeer hair apart from the reindeer here on my thumb what is save oh okay i know what this is can you guess where this where you stick this i mean it reminds me of a nintendo nes controller but i'm sure it's for oh is it goes in the joystick port of the commodore 64. but it lets you load and save data through the joystick port so what would you save your game any kind of data really what about data who's data data do you mean data different parts say different things yes i'm just making sure it can do both and the reason i thought getting this was i did that april fool's prank speaking of pranks where i pretended that i could scan in a postage stamp to load in a program through the joystick port using a light pen in my research for that completely fake make-believe thing it is actually possible to load programs through the joystick port so we're gonna have some fun with that so thank you eight bit benches very good my turn all right oh she's heavy are you a present are you a gift she is a kid there we go she's bored of your shenanigans well it's only just begun my damn printed printedsolid.com her face oh i know what this is oh can you tell yeah it's filament and can you tell what kind is that the wood one or no it's the beige ones that you can print your own literally anything you want this is from printed solid and he has developed specific amiga and c64 colored 3d printer filament i remember you were talking about trying to find that yeah your big airhead exactly i couldn't find it anyway it didn't exist the only one this color was tan and as you said it had wood yeah in it as well um so this is going to be so useful for designing commodore 64 amiga peripherals and we've got a little bitage within the picash practice that's you we've got i'm gonna rebrand my whole studio oh my gosh who's this so he says i'm the owner of printedsolid.com a bit of a retro computing nerd so they've got 43 colors and what is the two that are special to him beige number 500 and the other one is called tam the c64 which is based off of the uh is that a spectrum wrong by my count i found four distinct tan colors by commodore so i went with the most popular tan commodore color i could find here is real life jessie for you no she doesn't do autographs sorry can you see in two dimensions who's that who is that what's happening she still doesn't know who you are with that however who am i kind of similar both got they're both dark they've got two ears as if by magic at least we've got a c64 mini that is really good actually yeah you could print your own c64 mini thank you so much that's really good job printedsolid.com
bless okay this is just this has been looking at me the whole time so if it's okay i'm gonna just go ahead because i know what this is you may be able to tell from the label on the picasso this is a brand new custom built look at the size of that thing new and improved atari star wars cockpit arcade control yoke don't ever play with that oh she's heavy this is a yoke not to be confused with egg white uh these buttons are really satisfying to press like there's nice bounce back yeah i'll do a full comparison so this comes from glen planamento from glens retro show and they're now on amazon my cockpit arcade is right behind us and i'm going to do a video improving and replacing the yoke on that unfortunately the one that won our parkade supplied has started to malfunction i was just about to break my high score and the cursor just got stuck even though i was moving the yolk this yolk is going to replace one that's broke and that yolk is no joke it's going to make me stoked on that lovely sniff test oh taste test too no that's all right as i say to anyone that offers the donation in the standard blurb um everything gets x-rayed so unfortunately confetti bombs won't get through but uh speaking of sniff tests if we had a pussy fractic she could give it a cat scan you hear that no air drums just a little side note i have are you keeping up with the commodore stuck in my head are you keeping up with the commodore because the commodore keeping up with you in a world of high priorities and ever-changing views it's just so darn catchy so this i think this is coming from poland so this i think is from our mate pete aka retrohax.net aka no more reindeer pete's been a part of our channel i think since you started he is the brains behind some of those extreme reverbs that i've shown and this is atari san english edition magazine for all atari fans the cute little 3d printed atari disk drive oh it's cute on the cover oh i'm going to enjoy reading this in the bath that's my go-to retro mag place it really is i have to clean up stacks magazines around the tub where's your go-to retro mag place toilet man cave woman cave and there it is retrohax.net um pete not only does replacement stuff like springs for keyboards uh keyboard placentas what do you call it's not placenta i will have membranes keyboard membranes check out retrohax.net that's not a polish accent no jin you actually do ash ah she's got a better accent than me thank you very much pete my mate pete dubsted girl good girl dropship girl stop shit dope shit book shit you could be cursing in polish we don't know sorry if we've offended anyone my father was polish so i can get away with it many are polish geez i know your nose is very close to my face mine yeah so we should probably do this very special gift next it's a merry christmas and happy new year from PCBWayyy so let's open it up do you want to do the honors many gifts have we have a reference guide oh handy so this is for smd chips which is surface mount srt footprint sm team is surface mount technology same deal yeah it just tells you the names and the part numbers of popular things and sizes and chips and components diodes capacitors really handy actually thank you pcb weight pcb and honestly these are just the real i mean i don't have to say how well-made they are bcb weight is really good work but these are really nice and i got some frizzies now what are you doing i gotta break it down yeah we need some batteries well let's christmas is over yeah oh i have a soldering project for you i definitely pushed that too hard and we have a gingerbread man actually looks like a woman no no it looks like a woman these are the same oh baubles do you know fun stories i've lived in america 10 years um i love americans but they can't say baubles baubles i've trained her over the last eight years i've had two say baubles but usually it comes out as bobbles b o double b like bubble bobble which would be bawble bawble he just makes himself laugh this is just funny to him just make earrings that's very cute thank you for sponsoring this channel pcb way um without you guys and our patrons and youtube channel members and of course subscribers and puppy fair basically everyone i don't think would still be here so thank you so much well i know what i'm doing remember as a kid you squeeze the presents and try to figure out what it is i am guessing there are cables can you tell i'm an only child sorry i still get excited opening present i bet this is an adapter is this grounds for divorce if you're lucky oh this must go with the cameras two cameras two power supplies two cables another for you my love in case you ever get fair decks of me hold up with me fast forward oh sorry baby oh this is actually for me it's from superman oh it's from kalel 48. oh a bunch of stuff yeah lots of pretzies i just want to say thank you for putting the very delicate letter in bubble wrap and open this envelope and to pair it up finally okay finally this is all for you that's true and a bubble wrapped card oh more okay so this is the letter that goes with the things that goes with the card that went in the box there was another woman who lives in the shoe i hope that you and lady fractic are doing well and are having a wonderful holiday season this year yeah now this channel truly deserves the success it has achieved and so much more words cannot express how much i enjoy and appreciate the contributions that you both have made to the retro community with the incredible entertaining and informative video please accept these gifts as a token of my appreciation of all the hard work that goes into the channel it is quite evident that the videos are made with heart but there is also a genuineness and sincerity i might cry um that comes through every single time happy holidays to you both i wish you nothing but happiness and continued success in the coming year and always thank you so much keller that really these kind of messages we get these occasionally in the comments and emails it genuinely makes it all worthwhile thank you i know we have this channel but we are real people and we're real family going through the pandemic just like everybody else and um just having people reach out to us you can put some comments or to contact me really really means a lot to us and the same goes for everybody who's donated oh generosity is so kind and my aim is always to give it back to you guys with the channel and auctions or whatever but we should probably move on we feel dog nuzzled up to you there where is there a little dog well she's okay i've seen bigger dogs oh yeah great you're a great pyrenees you're great as well she's half for all the people that ask she's half great pyrenees half german shepherd that's right you're a shepherd of the germans all the best steven mazurek stephen didn't realize it was you until just now but that makes so much more sense do you remember when you would open a card from your grandparents um or relatives and there'd be money in and you just would kind of just just try and pretend that you didn't see the money just read i hope this festive season brings you every company thank you so much oh it appears a hundred dollars has fallen out thank you for that as well i was always taught to open the envelope catch the money or the check read it thank you so much this means so much to me and you never showed the check or showed the money so that other family members either didn't feel bad that they didn't get one or anything but it was all about you know preserving everyone's clever yeah oh ooh mine feels like a video game are you kidding steven thank you so much super mario 3d all-stars wow i couldn't get this in time on the website nintendo uk it was available for pre-order the us it just said check back soon and then it would say released november 13th and then november 13th uh they're all sold out on amazon and nintendo um you know what's this right i've only seen advertisements for this i haven't i mean like we haven't seen one in real life or anything but what are you about to call it advertisements advertisements advertisements advertisements advertisements because they advertise yeah it makes sense do the brits advertise advertisements because they advertise i've got to open this i'm just kidding yeah you want to help before christ okay here we go oh it's so tiny it's a lot smaller like that but that's what she said that is super cool does it turn on well this is the power button oh look at that wow now i do want to play the modern games on him but what really excites me is the original game and watch game oh yeah oh my gosh now for any of my super smash friends game watch is a character that you can play as super smash brothers yeah how does that work just like this and he like appears and can like build things and throw things i know you want to play but you don't have thumbs no you don't i'm sorry she didn't she didn't know she'd met them he just told her so you know why it's like this well it's just like a stick with three moving arm positions because those were the only parts that they animated because it was lcd yeah so it's like a digital watch which lives a game and watch as well so i had um a beauty and the beast version of this i also had a tiny toon adventures one where you were a character who was running with ice cream and someone would come out and scoop the ice cream and then as we're running someone would come out of a tree and steal your stack of ice cream scoops oh i dropped one however there is one more thing i have to go and get secret oh the one i had is the kid i've got to hold the batteries in this one needs a bit of a repair job is that an octopus yeah you get the idea so you're a little diver and you have to go get the treasure or something without getting killed yeah mine were easily like this big is that it at the bottom you get the idea so look at that that's very very cool it's not often i can just do an instant side-by-side comparison without even expecting to get something now do you think since they it's not going to get annoying um do you think it originally was this shade of gold but it has just aged over time probably yeah is that nintendo on the left yeah okay so they obviously pulled an original match because there's if they're going to try to be this close to being original i would hope so yeah you can see the brushed gold yeah i'm so excited super mario 64.
i mean for anybody who had an n64 that was just such a classic and i'm currently playing um super mario odyssey which lets you kind of go back to that world and so it'll be nice to actually get to play it cool thank you so much steven i cannot wait to play fractic from lucent technology i guess if you are a lady fractic i'm lord huh i should let the lord read it what have we got this is from stephen warnick um he says i hope you enjoyed the chirpy c64 voice unit i think i remember the email about this stephen so you know the commodore 64 can do speech yeah to some degree i believe this is a digitizer that will allow you to record that speech through a microphone plugged in there like the ghostbusters exactly that's essentially how they would have done that so there would have been a guy with something like this obviously activision was the company but the speech synthesis was by put it right there uh he had a mic and he'd gone ghostbusters and then a dog next to him would have tilted his head really cutely and david crane actually told me the guy that recorded that voice was david's intern at the time at activision uh i'll put his name right here oh yeah that's right i remember now very cool and a vic-20 modem i love the depiction that's that is an old school at least it doesn't have a rotary dial that's top of the line top of the line that pun top of the phone line and stephen goes on to say also intro encroached also enclosed is a truly retro item for you a pair of computer hollerith punch cards oh my gosh this may be the the most retro computing thing i've got these are from the bell laboratories headquarters in murray hill new jersey circa october 1969. wow we'd enjoy having a point with you next time i'm in california sounds good to me steve bell telephone laboratories that's now at t essentially a t and t bell but like based on alexander graham though he's founded by alexander bell yeah uh i don't know exactly how you would use it but you would put it into the machine it's a relocatable binary card the machine would give its answers instead of because it didn't have a screen back then 69. that's right it would print out i i think that's the idea and you'd get the answers to the computation in uh from the machine's binary on here so i guess that's kind of how that works i should probably do an entire episode about that i would love that wow and speaking of recovering data this recipe is also sponsored by wanda share recover it for all your data recovery needs with both free and paid versions on windows and macintosh they offer patented technology to restore lost data and corrupted videos maybe even this one battle hawks 1942 so i remember this email this is from dale graham dale told us that he bought this for his grandfather's birthday but his grandfather had sadly passed away before he could give it to him he wanted it to have a good home which i can assure you it now has he also mentioned that rumor has it lucas and spielberg would enjoy playing the game and comparing notes all that of course was before lucasarts was even lucasarts i can't wait to see the graphics on there because the art on the front is so beautiful yeah very cool thank you so much dale this is from dean woodyatt dean woodyard isn't he staring eastenders i wouldn't know all right love how's it going come down the cafe i saw you sleeping with my sister that's not your sister that's my mom wait that's worse move on like the style of this whatever this thing is what is this thing it says it's a c64 mini keyboard kit ohhhh i always do that the realization has hit me this is a c64 mini keyboard kit where is your c64 mini that you just had i put it away did you grab it yep she's wading through that old packaging obviously this doesn't work correct obviously this turns into a fully working keyboard with a bit of soldering that will go under there and these are the keys and then this must be how it connects uh internally or externally it's essentially a usb keyboard that plugs back in to the what was the third way around plugs back in inside to give you a working keyboard it doesn't actually say i mean it might but it doesn't say what caps to use yeah i know he was working on some 3d printed or injection molded ones but for now it would be a little bit like the mini pet or the pet mini with those tiny little buttons let me see that very cool thank you dean and a big fan of your work in eastenders hey Google who plays ian in eastenders ian beal was played by adam woodyatt adam woodyatt any relation dean's brother dean say hi to your brother for me i'll see him down the cafe that's the little 3d printed mounting plate what's this color yeah neon fluorescent transparent yellow i mean that really is your favorite color this is what i would call almost chartreuse thank you (Google: thank you glad you found me helpful let me know if there's anything i can do) you're welcome all right now we've got four biggest ones left and then we are all done that's the end of christmas sad but we must live in the present and enjoy the process this is a present live in the present like i could fit in those ones this is from david whitman whitman says here are the floppy disks i promised i've added some canadian treats for the fractic family hope you enjoy them and it's again for all the great retro computing star wars lego and miscellaneous content we work tirelessly to create i am quite tired actually uh as well as the content you create when you're tired obviously he made the joke for me so i didn't have to it all comes together to create a channel full of old memories and new possibilities that's very sweet thank you so much david what have we got well so these are oh yeah wow they don't make five and a quarter inch floppies anymore it's dusty okay honestly david you get right up lady fractic's nose just like a covid test that's good I guess oh canadian shall we open it yeah it's your time has come she was getting upset because none of the gifts were for her oh this is whoa it's gonna keep you busy all right she'll eat it so fast huh good and wave okay let's see what she does that was chewy we have about four and a half seconds of peace and oops quiet coffee crisp minis these look so good i'm more excited about the polaroid branded oh how cool this and the chocolates you finished already now she's on to her coffee mints next sorry no you're not thank you so much again david from puppy frantic especially three left lovely she showed him all her teeth this is from paul chapman puppy peri and lady of the fractic clan as promised here is the c64c signed by archer maclean get these out of my way ow that hurt oh we lost the dog she dropped her treat oh archer maclean coded incredible games including international karate plus there you go wow wow very cool he goes on to say it was part of the kickstarter reward for the c64 book quite a few years ago i was reassured it's in fully working order but i haven't been able to test it seems fine i can also and i also included a couple of c64 canvas art again signed by archer maclean i didn't know if you're going to dive in and as it happens some forensic handwriting analysis because this is a signed card uh kindly signed by arch archer and sent in by chris wilkins of fusion retro books who you saw at the start so we can now compare are they both authentic yes yes 100 they're very cool how flipping cool blimey is that a curse word core blimey what was the version i taught you the other day gordon bennett yeah i heard that i was like i don't know that's a live version gordon bennett whoa match over wait his pants are down he lost arch arch stew scentsy-tastic perifractic there's a theme here you can see where i got some of these ideas from um sensible soccer signed by stewart thank you so much cool and paul went on to say before he was so rudely interrupted by you feel free to do what you want with them all i won't be offended if you pass them on it just seemed like a suitable way of supporting your great channel and i know they'll go to a good home regardless thank you so much paul poole and thank you archer indirectly and thank you stuart indirectly it's heavy oh packing peanuts i do want to just but i won't oh i know what this is it looks like a microwave but this is i haven't seen one of these since school bbc monitor it was kate beckinsale bbc monitor made by cub and i won't mention his this wrong because this was actually an ebay purchase from me but i did chat with him about what it's going to be useful and asked him to pack it really well which he did so i appreciate that this is going to be completing the puzzle with the bbc micro model b for the episodes i'm going to be doing about that so hey old buddy good to see you again after all these years it hasn't put on any weight at all last one coming up this is from lee volante lee is another of our lovely patrons um a really nice guy and we chat a lot on the patreon it's a sony stereo i think it may not be that oh this actually looks exactly like the one i had growing up that would have been nice yeah we had really we only had one but it lasted for like 15 years as they do no peanuts says keep up the good work with this great mix of projects refurbs hardware and software nostalgia all delivered with so much fun and enthusiasm we try don't we best wishes from lee sylvia yeah smash sylvia and lcp julia to you of course we saw julia when she was playing little computer people after seeing our episode about that that was really cute do not read this out on camera okay i'll read that later let's just unbox the final prezi make a power supply it's a mice for puppy fractic now i don't know how i time this but i always seem to open the most personally nostalgic thing last uh which means we should open this second to last now i always love the design of the amiga 1200. you like this part i like the whole thing just that kind of wedge shape it's just a more modern a500 is it like a wedge entirely shape exactly um i always wanted an a1200 and now thanks to lee i have one chris blyth briefly donated me the black team 17 amiga 1200 we found some nefarious content on that wasn't his uh but he wanted that back eventually um feel how oh it was in my lap oh my gosh it's very heavy but we must move on to the most nostalgic because uh i had obviously a commodore 64 and then i upgraded to amiga but in between i had an atari st and i've said this before this is the last thing i need to reacquire to get my whole collection that was the bbc model b but i'd forgotten that i had an atari st i liked it because i as a musician it had those midi ports so you could connect keyboards and stuff so was it pronounced guitarist yes here it is oh look at that that's not in bad condition not a bad knit club you love nick you it's not in bad nick as i said that was got a screw loose that screw fell out wow lee look at this i think lee's hot least it before it's still got the plastic on the paint guys look the plastic's still on the thing i won't peel that off i'll make a decision about that i love peeling plastic but i haven't seen one of these for 25 years maybe um and the midi ports that i mentioned are right there plug your keyboard in and your keyboard out another unboxing completed and finally i think the collection is complete for now now until i remember the next thing i used to have as a kid well i think we should wrap it up shouldn't we that has been a bumper edition i'm not re-wrapping all of it let's wrap it all up as always i just want to thank you guys so much for all the generosity check out the link in the description if you want to donate something to the channel there she's given up well i just want to wish you guys a very merry christmas and a lady new year with lots of new gear happy new year as always thanks for watching subscribe below and cheerio cheerio
