Just acquired a Memotech Z80 assembler unit for the ZX81.
I noticed the Rom code is relocatable so saved it to a 4k rem!!
Loaded it into a second ZX81 with a battery back up memory board, transferred the rem code into the board  I now have two assemblers bliss!!

Just won an Neo Geo MV1 for £4.99 with a color ram fault. Hopefully it shouldnt be too much of an ass to fix but you take a chance when buying these things

Yesterday i won an auction for an Amstrad 6128 plus. This system is quite rare here in Germany. It comes together with a monochrome monitor, manuals, 15 disks and 3 carts. The carts are the system cartridge with Burning Rubber, Klax and Super Pinball Magic.
Well, it's better to say that i don't won the auction ... it has a BIN-price: 38 Euros (~33 GBP). I think it's a really good price for this system, right ? ;) OK, it has a broken disk drive, but i think it's only the belt (and this can quickly be replaced ;))

Bargain! Great machine too. (I have one!  ;D )

There is a boxed Amiga 1200 without PSU in a unkown working condition at the house clearance. He wants £15 but think I may get a couple of quid off.

Anyone interested?

Chap from work gave me these Printztronic/Acetronic/Radofin games today. Love the painted artwork you get on older games.

The UK101 is a really nice machine. It was mainly sold in kit form. Can be quite valuable.

Its original 'case' is the cardboard box it was delivered in.
