WOW! Isn't everyone here friendly!

Certainly going to make every effort to make it on the 31st now!

So is it going to be OK for me to just turn up and just be nosey around everyone's machines? Sounds like great fun :)

Of course mate - that is the idea - the machines that belong to RCM especially - have a play! Hopefully something for everyone machine and game wise! ;)

Hello, I'm Steve, often known as "that really tall fella"!

I live in Kidderminster, 20miles south west of Brum and am interested in all sorts of old computers and consoles, though my main interests are the Atari VCS (my first console), Atari 7800, TI-99 (first computer) and Acorn RISC machines (thanks Dad for buying us an A3000 in 1991! :-)

Had a great day at my first RCM open day on Sunday and no doubt I will be at others in the future. So hi!

Hello!

My name is Ryan Burnside and I too share a passion for historical electronics. Currently I enjoy playing my older systems much more than the new ones. I mostly play scrolling shooting games (shmups), Gradius is an example. I live in Montana in the US so I'm across the pond you might say. I have NEVER sold a system yet. I'm also a member of DBF Interactive where we create demos and discuss computer programming. I was born on the tail end of the 80's so I really regret not being able to code in the golden era of games and computers.

My current systems

Gameboy
Gameboy Color
Gameboy Advance
Nintendo DS

Nintendo Entertainment System
Super Nintendo Entertainment System
Nintendo 64
Nintendo Game Cube
Nintendo Wii

Sega Genesis
Sega CD
Sega Dreamcast

Playstation (full collection of US released shmups)
Playstation 2 (full collection of US released shmups)


Nice to meet you all. I only have 2 computers a Compaq Presario and a Acer notebook. I'm more of a console man.

The one next to the Master with SID chip? Yes! That chap had written Bomberman in C for it. Very impressive.

Hey,

I joined as recently as last weekend after attending your most recent events day.

I'm Linds from Kilwinning in Scotland and just finished my PhD in medical statistics at University of Glasgow.  Finally, after 8 years (!!!), I am no longer a student - but now I get to use the title Dr. (mwah, ha, ha!!).

I had a mega drive when I was younger and met my boyfriend after having a lengthy discussion about Sonic the Hedgehog while in a night club on Christmas eve.  Turns out I knew more hidden passageways in Sonic 1 than he did :D

Linds,
It is great to have you on here - our first Doctor! ;)
It was also good to meet you both on Sunday too! Good conversations about various games etc! ;)

Hey guys,

I just joined a couple of minutes ago! ;)

I was also at the event last Sunday (I'm gingerpenguins' boyfriend), and had an awesome time checking out all of those systems from years gone by. It was my very first Retro event, which made it even more special. It was also the first time that I got to have a shot of certain consoles "in the flesh" (so to speak). For example, I'd read about the Vectrex, 3DO and Jaguar (for the latter two consoles, when they were originally released) -- but before Sunday I hadn't actually played any of them! So that was quite an experience. ;)

My main passion (as far as gaming goes) is collecting old (British) Sega magazines. Strange, I know! I'm basically into anything from the Master System all the way through to the Dreamcast. So far, I have 582 out of (by my estimation) 650 unique Sega magazines. If anyone wants to check out my collection, here's an out-of-date photo-shoot:

http://tinyurl.com/b74vj4

I should really get around to updating it because, since those photos were taken, I've acquired another 102 issues. Yep, I guess you could say that Linds is a pretty understanding girlfriend. ;)
