Title: Evenin' all...
Post by: Swordfish on March 13, 2011, 10:44:40 PM
Hiya - I'm Phil, I'm 35, married with 4 gorgeous kids and living in Redhill, England.  I had a Commodore 64 from about the age of 9 and eventually went through 4 of them before the last one packed up when I was in my early twenties.  I discovered the VICE emulator about 8 or 9 years ago and quickly got back into my element, then stumbled (extremely happily) upon Slay Radio and the Remix scene at RKO shortly after.

I have been totally addicted to Anna Black's 'Anorak' show on Slay Radio for a couple of years now, and have arrived at the Retro Computer Museum from the Facebook links I've aquired through the IRC on Slay.

I will definitely be attending both days of the Weekender in May, and I can't wait.  My technical knowledge may be limited, but my enthusiasm knows no bounds, believe me - it drives the wife mad!  :o

I'm glad to be here and wish you all a hearty 'EVENIN'...  :D

Nice one Phil and welcome on board the good ship RCM - look forward to meeting you in May! ;)
Nearly all of us love the C64 (mainly due to its SID chip!) so you are not alone there!

Thanks for the warm welcome, Andy.  Nice to know (as I'm finding more and more often now) that I'm not alone in my obsession with retro-technology.  Needless to say if I ever DO win the Lottery, you'll have massive premises for your museum, endless supplies of outdated systems and limitless advertising.

Until then however, you have my spiritual support and gratitude if nothing else!

See you in May.  :)

Welcome Phil, like Andy said most of us like the C64, more of a speccy man myself, but have to conceed that the C64 certainly does it on the music front.
