Hello from Jack
« on: February 08, 2015, 09:01:06 PM »
Hello everyone, I'm new to the forums - but I've visited the museum a few times now.

I might only be 15, but I first got into gaming thanks to the N64 and Mega Drive. I've always been a huge fan of vintage/retro computers, but have only recently gotten into collecting them. Right now it's two iMac G3's (Bondi Blue and Dalmatian), and a C64C (now fully functional, thanks Andy!). A very small collection but it's a work in progress.

Anyway, this forum sounds like a great place to exchange retro computing info, and I'm really glad to have joined it!  :)

Jack

Hello Jack,
Great to see you again today. Pleased that you like visiting the museum. ;)
No problem regarding the PSU for the C64c!
See you at the museum again sometime.

Hi Jack,

We all have to start somewhere  :) mine was buying an Amiga A500 off ebay after a few too many drinks, several years later, I now have over 70 systems  :o and a very understanding wife  ;D

Yep! A smaller 'Mega Drive II', years ago though. It eventually died, and we threw it away (at this point unaware of it's collectible retro cool-ness). A terrible decision I know, but forgive me, I was only about eight!

Hey we all make mistakes, mine was selling all my speccy tapes for a stupidly low amount of cash, and selling my Atari Lynx, really regret that  :'(

Oh no! I suppose this was before they reached collector status though?  :'(

Oh well, at least it made more room for your collection right? :)
