FYI... Messagae recieved from the Stairway to Hell website...

Hi

Just want to draw everyone's attention to the following post, which concerns a Classic Gaming event taking place in Stoke-on-Trent, UK on the weekend of March 7th-8th 2009:
http://www.stairwaytohell.com/sthforums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2026

I'll be working closely with the organiser, Mat Corne (who is a BBC Micro owner himself, and is keen to make the event as Acorn-friendly as possible) so you can be assured of there being plenty of Beebs, Elks and Arcs on display, in addition to "modern" BBC upgrades too.

No promises, but I'm also hoping to lure in one or two ex-Acorn programmers as well.

It's a charity event and therefore, it would be wonderful if we could bank on a really good showing from members of this here forum! So regardless of whether you are a frequent poster, a new member or a lurker - if you're the slightest bit tempted to come - DON'T HESITATE - register your interest in the above thread now!

I'm currently in the process of sorting out a couple of hotels where those attending both days can congregate/stay on the Saturday night, so if you'd like to receive more details, please contact me asap as spaces will be limited.

Cheers!
Dave.

P.S. I appreciate this message will reach a number of members who aren't based in the UK, but if there are any folks overseas who are genuinely interested in attending, please contact me and I'll do my best to assist with travel & accommodation arrangements. Stoke-on-Trent is situated in-between four major airports (East Midlands, Birmingham, Manchester and Coventry).

My Amstrad CPC6128 died a few weeks ago, and I really miss it.

Does anyone have a spare 6128 system board I could have? I dont need the disk drive, case etc.

HARDWARE/SYSTEMS DISCUSSION / Wanted : Dragon 32 tape
« on: July 31, 2008, 03:56:37 PM »
Hi,

Does anyone here have a spare tape for the Dragon 32. It doesnt need to be an original game, a copy will do. I will paypal you across the postage.

Ive got all the parts I need today to make the tape cable, but have no tapes.

Failing that, I will try and convert a tape image to a real tape or connect dragon up via the sound card.
