Being cheeky bit if one of the Commodore 16's and the Plus 4 are looking for a good free home  ;)

The Commodore's are really starting to grow on me...

Picked up 2 * Sun Ultra 10s, 1 * Ultra 1 "Creator 3d" and a load of SCSI drives tonight.  ;D

1 Ultra 10 has a PC card installed with a 400Mhz AMD CPU and some very advanced 3D card.

Im getting rid of 1 of the ultra 10s and maybe the Ultra 1

Decided its time to buy one those PS2 mouse interfaces for the Atari ST, as I can't be doing with my Logic 3 mouse anymore.

Does that mean you interested in selling it? or should I just go ahead and buy one off techie_alison?

Just won a Vectrex, two controllers & 4 games (Bezerk, Clean Sweep, Armour Attack & Flipper Pinball). Looks like the overlays are present too.

Hoping that £47 was a good price? If not, my wife will kill me  ;D

That's a good price compared to the one's I've watched recently! Wish I found one like that.

Enjoy!

Best ask Starship as he has a multicart for the Vectrex. I think there's a link to one on the Flash/SD adapter thread to.
