COLLECTORS CORNER / Re: Donations to the museum . . .
« Last post by AndyRCM on May 21, 2018, 05:29:24 PM »
Last Saturday we had an Oric 1 donated along with a few books and 20 or so games - many of which we didn't have.
On Sunday we had a boxed Amstrad PC1512 with everything with it. Also on Sunday many PC related bits and bobs too from another donation.

Quite recently we had a huge donation - literally our biggest to date - unfortunately in VERY sad circumstances as they were donated by grieving parents. I won't name them or him in this thread but will eventually have something in place at the museum itself commemorating his life.

Included in the donation were the following (not an exhaustive list as that would take a very long time):

Atari Falcon
Atari Stacy2
Commodore SX64
Tatung Einstein
Sega Megadrive 2
2x NeXT Stations
6x Sharp MZ (various types)
5x Acorn (various types)
3x Sinclair ZX81
7x Sinclair Spectrums (various types)
2x Sinclair QL
5x Commodore Amiga (various types)
5x Commodore PET (various types)
3x Apple (various types)
5x Commodore (various types)

and lots of other systems, peripherals and of course games.

Hi You All,

I'm new here and I hope to have a great read on this forum and hope I can have some input into this forum.

I operate on Atari 800xl with 1mb ultimate upgrade. Currently saving money for the upgrade on my graphics.

I use Sio2sd and I love it. Unfortunately I do not have any cassette/disc player but i hope this will happen at some point.

I have been playing Atari since i was wee.

I reside in Edinburgh so if any events will happen there I will attend or near me.

Anyways,

Thanks a lot

GRooBY
