Hi All

My name is Stefan, live in Melton Mowbray, my first computer was an Oric1 and then the Oric Atmos. This was followed with Amstrad CPC 464 (green screen), then Amstrad 6128, Amiga 600 and finally before moving to PCs an Amiga 1200 with 20 meg hard drive.

I mostly used these machines for programming and playing the odd game.

Recently started my own small collection of retro machines, nothing much, just few of the most popular.

These days outside of work, I spend what little time I get managing my Linux media server (MythTV) and front ends, currently PI B+ with Kodi. I also like to program using Perl, C and VB.NET.

Cheers

Hi Andy

Aye, it myself and the better half, she enjoyed a quick stint on the tennis game particularly when beating me  ;D

We had a very enjoyable visit, pity we had to shoot off, would have loved to stay longer and explore.

Hope you don't mind me saying, the museum seems like a good place to hang out, chat, play a few games and maybe help out. Have you considered perhaps a yearly membership for people like myself who would like to pop along the odd Sunday afternoon ?

Cheers

Stefan

Hello,
 I am new here, but not to 8bit processors. I started on a ZX81 (was supposed to share it with my sisters..... sorry sis(es?)) then after a near miss with a Jupiter Ace (Phew!) my Dad got us an Oric1 48K. Now I know the "Accepted wisdom" is that the Oric1 keyboard was rubbish and that the Atmos was much better, but I loved the Oric1 keyboard... I sometimes wonder how many reviewers have actually tried one ;)

  I always wanted to program ("code" nowadays) in assembler, but I couldn't get my head round it at 13, and spent most of my secondary school evenings writing programs (in basic) to swap with my mate (he also had an Oric1). I couldn't afford to buy games at the time, and to be honest it was a good thing, I learnt a lot and it stood me in good stead for later life...

 I got interested in electronics and eventually moved onto Pic micros (1996), I used an Oric (posh Atmos this time) with a home-built ADC to prove to my boss we needed a PC (a 386 - kit form for £800) to program them with... he went for it, and I have been programming Pics in assembler ever since!

 I now work for a radio control company in Walsall and am grudingly moving over to C for our newer products (although I still maintain and code some smaller products in assembler). I showed our new engineer a picture of an Oric, his response was "Where is the screen?"..... things move on I guess ;)
 
 I always wanted to return to the Oric to finally do some asm programming, and thanks to a visit to RCM, my interest has been fired up again ;)

 Thank you Andy for putting up with me on Sunday, I had a great time, and can't wait to come back for a visit!

Regards


Matthew
