Hi
I'm really pleased to have found this forum. I've just retired (which gives away my age) and I've always been into computers. My first one was a Netronics Cosmac Elf 2 - you got a large pcb and a bag of chips and you had to solder them in yourself - it had 256bytes (not Ks  :D) of memory. Then a ZX80, a ZX81 and a Jupiter Ace, which you programmed in Forth. My computing then moved to work where we had one of the first Apricot XI-10s, which I kept running for 20 years. The only one I have kept is an Amstrad NC100 Notepad (great name), which I used to write part of a book I self-published. Now I have found you I will try to get it working again.

Thank you. I found the website after watching the BBC Click program on the Vintage Computer Show. I'll let you know how I get on with the NC100.

Hi i'm Andrew from Dumfries in Scotland. I work as a computer repair technician at Kilco International Chemicals, i've always had a big interest in computers old and new (which annoys my girlfriend as these are all over the house)  ;D i found this site while doing a web search for Commodore, im glad there is a place like this that keeps these classic machines  :)

p.s mite have some systems to donate myself if i can part with any haha
