Hi everyone, I'm mark and I'm 25 years old, I've been playing video games since around 1987. I'm a big fan of the super nintendo but enjoy playing all consoles. Myself and rinoa have approx 30 consoles between us and enjoy playing games on a daily basis. We both recently attended byte back where we met some great people (like woody) and also purchased tickets to the rcm event in may which we are both looking forward to.
Hi Mark/Blackpanther.
Good to meet you & Rinoa @ Byte Back.
Looking forward to seeing you in May.

30 consoles? You're nearly as bad as me! :o

Hi everyone

I just signed up, having met some of you at Byte Back last week. I was selling some games at the event (I think Andy bought a job lot of Amstrad items from me!) I had the stall next to Steve (BigManGames) in the area between where they were serving food and the bar.

I'm into all sorts of retro systems, check my website to get an idea of what I collect. I'm especially into Colecovision, MSX and Vectrex.

I'm planning to come to the RCM event at the end of May and will load up my car with some of my extras to donate to the museum :)

Right, now to have a look around the site... hope to chat to you soon.

Cheers
Jon

It was good to meet you at Byte Back Jon, You certainly had some nice stuff for sale too! It did look like I had the Amstrad stuff but I actually got it for Jimbob . . . I owed him some money so I paid for it! ;)

hi there,

My name is Jools, from Birmingham the reason Ive joined is because Im in the midst of of having a sort out and have some oddments that I dont want,, mainly books and games and a couple of pieces of hardware, not complete, not sure about whether they work either!! Was going to give them to charity or throw them but would be nice if they where of use to someone in some way, not asking much infact will give some stuff away as incomplete not sure of condition,,  stuff is cassette games atari, books for commodore vic20, plus4, bbcB and PET,  some old atari page6 mags,, 2 data cassettes for atari and one for commodore vic 20,, a atari 600xl and 65xe ,, No leads or power supplys  and there might be a few other things not finished sorting them out yet. ;D

This site is fascinating,, have enjoyed looking at stuff about the old computers and seeing them again brings back good memories, will post more later when finished sorting stuff out, anyway nice to meet you all :)

Hi Jools.

On behalf of everyone here...Welcome.

If you do want to give anything to RCM....We welcome all as I'm sure others will confirm.

I am able to collect from you as I work in Oldbury but stop 3 night a week on Birmingham.

Glad you found us....Enjoy  :D

Good to have you on here Jools, a new member is always good to have - be interesting to see what you have too.
Please do let us know what you have - some of the systems we might not even have in our collection ;)

Thanks for the welcomes, Will post later in week when finished sorting out, Im happy to hear you could collect Karl as I dont have anyway of getting the stuff to you mainly due to health problems and not driving. I think the idea of a museum is brillant, I found another site that was doing a similar thing and they hire stuff out to Tv companys and things. Be sad to loose all the old stuff its good people are doing what you are! anyway more later  :)

Hi Folks

I'm Paul from Darlington in the North East. I'm an Atari 8 bit nut. I have a loft and home office stuffed full of Atari stuff (or all that eBay tat as my wife calls it ;-) ) In my time I've owned of used a huge amount of stuff now considered retro computing. Oh and I've got a number of Amigas dotted around too - but I don't get much time for them at the moment.

I usually hang out over at Atari Age and I know one of the other members here (1200XL) from there. It's nice to see so many folks here in the UK keeping the retro dream alive!
