Hi I'm Robby

Dont usually use forums as such until now that is. My interest in retro computers started about a week ago when I mtd the attic of all the machines there, a further week was spent reliving certain years of my life (my wife still doesnt believe me that I was playing the origional space invader in the gararge). One of the first game I ever played was Dungeons and Dragons on the Essex Uni Prime, using a Colour Genie as a terminal. I was "Snert the Dog" if anyone else was there.

My first computers were military so the less said about them the better (they still had a joystick port although everone else said it was for comms, !!!!).

Looking forward to the Exhibitian

Regards to all

Robby

Hiya Robby!

Great to have you on board, it's scary the memories that an old computer/machine can stir up  :o

See you at the exhibition!

Glad it's going to be of some use .. was just sitting there.

My MMC Replay turned up today as well as meeting someone who works nearby and picking up a 3-port expander for the C64 and a legit (!!) copy of Fast Hack 'Em :)

Let me know if you turn up a spare 1541-II PSU so I can test out Fast Hack 'Em's copying times :)

Btw, I used to have a mate near Warrington where you went!

Well actually it was in Widnes, same county though. Aaron Evans, aka Sledge Hammer of a group called Dimension X, he was a coder an d gfx artist, I even went to Warrington once to meet him.

Hiya Quagmire and welcome to RCM  ;D

A Commodore PET is an awesome donation, thank you! We have been hunting for one of those for ages.

 Another flying the Amiga flag is always cool too  8)
