A local YouTube channel by Bill Owen featured Free Geek in its series for building retro PCs. It is a great series to see if you are interested in retro PC gaming.

Super Cheap Computers Free Geek & Best Retro Gaming PC Case ep3
Free Geek would like to thank a Minneapolis based “This Does Not Compute” Youtube channel for creating a great video about Free Geek history and operations. The video is available at:
The channel is a favorite of a number of Free Geek staff as it covers in depth topics that would be interesting to people who enjoy technology.
April 22nd, 2018 is Earth Day. Free Geek will participate by holding an electronics collection event.
