Wii U softmodding is very cool too. There are a ton of videos for all out CFW softmod (Mocha or Haxchi) with addons such as Nintendont. And the "no-mod" lite. You want me to find a decent upto date video for you?

Ah, another Sun owner!
I have the option of a LOT of modern (read 10 yo) sun stuff from work now but I just don't have any room, nor enthusiasm for them.

Also I see a Amstrad 6128+ :)
Yeah, it's in really good nick with a separate PSU and SCART cable. (No Amstrad monitor required) Unfortunately the "2" key doesn't work so I cannot load anything.... I really need a guide to servicing the keyboards on this... or a screwdriver and a lot of patience.

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.
