oops - sorry guys, only just noticed this post!  :P

<lifestory>

OK, I'm Tim, from good old Birmingham, and I'm a long term retro enthusiast, although, I confess, not really going back that far. Only 32ish, and the first computer I had was a C64.

I sort of fell into selling games for a living since I got booted out of a 'proper job' a year ago in the so called recession - I'm not bitter, I rather enjoy the late mornings now. Definitely wouldn't be happy going back to a 9-5. Couldn't ask for a better job. Sorry if I'm causing any envy here :)
Oddly, even though I was a software developer for 10 years, then a tester, I find myself doing more development nowadays than I ever did in a job! Funny old world..

Anyway, these days I pick up all sorts of oddities at whatever (top secret!) places I get my games and stuff, which led me to brag on twitter about it, which led me here through one of the members of this forum. I confess that while I'm more into mainstream stuff like the (S)NES or sega consoles, I can't resist a speccy or an MSX when I see it.  Even though I don't sell them. It will be my downfall in the end, I'm sure. LOL.

So yeah, HI ALL :)

Andy and I (who started all this off)are from Leicestershire, as are some of the other Admins. We have members and Admins from all over the UK from as far south as Portsmouth to as far north as areas of Scotland. We even have members in USA , Australia and Europe.

Our events are always held in Leicestershire for ease of transporting equipment and setting up, but people come from miles to attend!
