Just signing in. If you're an 8-bit or 16-bit retro gamer then you probably know me from the Amiga, Atari, Nintendo, Sega or Spectrum scenes?

I'm a hardware designer who started out working for Argonaut in the ARC (SuperFX) department. These days I work as a member of a team designing hard drive controllers (USB3, 10 Gigabit Ethernet NAS etc.)

I've got an attic, garage and a box room full of retro hardware though mainly these days I play emulated games via modded XBOX-1 or on an Android tablet / smartphone.

My computer timeline was :

Acorn Electron->Spectrum +3->Amiga->SNES->Sega Saturn->PSOne->N64->Dreamcast->XBOX1->PS3

More recently (in the last 10 years) I've bought Atari MegaSTe, Atari Falcon.

Alex,
Welcome - glad you managed to sign up! ;)
Great that you worked for Argonaut! That and what you do now must be fascinating.
Sounds like you have a lot of nice kit too! Especially in mentioning the MegaSTe and of course the Falcon (both of which elude us at RCM at the moment!)
Welcome and I hope you enjoy these forums.
Cheers
Andy
