Nice haul today,

2xZX81's both working, 1980 issue motherboards, 2X16k ram packs, (not tested as yet), with a zx80 powerpack! (shame no zx80 lol) 2X48k ZX rubber key, spectrums, one is bust, nearly switches on (will donate to RCM), the other works perfectly. A very nice condition Dragon 32, fully working and stacks of games and 3 joypoles, a Commodore 16, in VGC, a breadbin C64 also in VGC, fully working, keyboard and SID. (Picture is pants with my Video lead though, but ok on RF, is a mystery that), and a f++k me moment when found a Snclair ZX printer in the bottom of box complete with bog roll, thermal paper...OH yes. £50 for the lot, bargin.....

Happy Days...

Myself and Anna & Dave (Attic Bug) went to Bowlers today.

I bought: Bomberman Generations and Ace Golf 2 on the Gamecube - £2 each.

Dave (Attic Bug Dave) picked up Super Monkey Ball (also on GC) for £2 and two Sega Saturn import/action replay carts for £3 each and a Prince of Persia Trilogy set on the PS2 (£8).

*plug* Mate's sweet stall still has tons of PS2 games - £2.50 each or 3 for £5 *plug* for anyone visiting Bowlers at any time soon :)

Just recieved a box from one of our Java Developers. Has a ZX81, 16k ram pack, leads included and quite a few games/books. Just be reading some of the game instructions and love how they proudly list the special features on screen for some of these early games e.g 'includes high score table' & 'random saucers with mystery points'. Then there's the invite to 'fiddle with the BASIC' with various Poke advice..love it!

I've also just got a C128! Also 2 more +4s.

Just need another 8 pin DIN plug (the more uncommon pin layout that C= decided to use.)
