I came up with "Retro Gamer Base" (RGB)[cable for retro consoles]

as the name for the lounge part ;)

I dunno, have you got any pictures about how your museum us laid out?
i.e. is it All Professional and grids n stuff, or is it just scattered?

Names John living in New Zealand on a not to perm basis as I hope to return to live in Wales in the near future.
Most of my collection is because of my addiction to Atari A8's which started back in the very early 80's
collection is
a mix of 800xl's from standard to highly modded
130XE's standard
1050 drives ranging from standard through Laser, Quad, to Happy drives
ST's various models

then MAC's about three with the new one being 233MHz iMAC

Commodore
C16
C64 breadbox
C64c

a number very early IBM laptops
and some where in storage which I have not checked for years an Amiga and three Archimedes

Welcome to RCM John  :)

I'm sure you and Mike (1200xl) will have alot to talk about, as he likes his 8bit Atari's including modding them  :)

Lee here, originally from Melton Mowbray but since moved closer to Leicester, not by my own choice but marriage. lol

Always enjoyed computer games and play them every day if I can.  Hopefully make one of your open days soon.

Evening all! I'm Lynz, another local from Leicestershire. Went along to the Snibby event, got talking to Andy and Linda and the rest is history, as they say.

Nice to meet you all!

Hi I'm Nige from the West Midlands, I was well into computers in the early eighties, I owned a c64 but used to swap with my friends over the weekends with a Spectrum 48k, acorn electron and even the zx81 .
I made several type in ( with a few graphics) adventure games on the c64 when I was 11 years old but unfortunately tapes got lost :(
Love the 8 bit era great memories for me.
