GENERAL RETRO CHIT CHAT / Re: What shall I do?

Looks like a mix of knowledge here.

I feel out of my depth in many avenues of computing, but I'm good at being an Odd-ball!

I see everyone wants a 3DO now :-\ Don't get one they're crap :P

Oh!  :o
With a collection that size... How long did it take for you to arrive at that conclusion?  ;D

Finished bein' bored yet?  ;D

Finished your choon too?  :D

A cheaper alternative would be to use the serial port and connect to a serial port on one of your linux hosts.
I know its not the same - but its a bit of fun.

Mmmmm! Intrestin'! Thanks AndyT.

You'll be wanting one of these:

Not cheap, mind (nearly £70).

Oooo! Thank you. I shall have a further dig around...

Out of interest - what would you use the LAN connection for?

Ummm... because it's a network I already use with a bunch of G3's and Dual boot Linux/windows PC's and I'd like to get the Beeb on board just for the sake of it. Girls like to have fun too!  8)

Does anyone know if it is possible to add a BBC Master to an ethernet network, and if so, how?  ???

I'm not great with computers but I have wired up my own RJ45's for standard and cross-over Cat 5 cables, so if I need to jury-rig a few unusual plugs and sockets I might be able to cope. If memory serves me at all, the Beeb has an econet interface for networking.

I'm sure there must be some Beeb guru's among you who know the magic spell. Your help will be appreciated.  :D

Thanks most muchly, Andrea

Doh! Maybe I'd have been clearer if I'd spelt Program in English... like Programme... a sequence of events rather than coding for computers.

Nevah mind! One day... all puns will be written this way!  :-[

Having a late night, drinking wine and writing tunes :-*

Is that a BASIC program?

Hi Dean, and welcome.
I tried to brows your site, but my anti-virus detects a worm virus. Anyone else having problems?

I tried just now...20:29 pm... and my virus/malware detector indicates an infected iframe on Dean's website.


Excellent to have you on here, I will have to come and visit you.
Hope you enjoy your time on here.


Hello Andy!

Yes... You must come to collect a few items - I don't think you need a pantechnicon.
You might need a Road Train!!!!  ;D


Hello and thanks to everyone else for the welcome.

Hello! I'm Andrea.

I live in Huntingdon and have very little knowledge or understanding of computers, but I still have my very own original Acorn Master. 8)

It's the machine I wrote my first bespoke piece of software on - a menu driven type casting calculator with a flat file database back end on a 5.25" floppy.  ;D

It's also the machine on which I first played Elite - without a joystick. My first dabble with DOS also happened on this kit.  :-[

Some of the old things in life are still the best, but I don't like to talk about me very much. ;)
