Oh yes, I was saying Dick Smith sounds like a dodgy gay porn movie. He is actually a dodgy gay porn star:

That is NSFW. Hell I don't even think its suitable for human eyes, lol!

Picked up 2 more machines yesterday.

Tandy WP-2 (Z80 wordprocessor thingy)
Sinclair ZX81.

Tandy thing works fine - not tried the ZX81 yet.

A Leisure 2000 (Midi Size) Arcade Cabinet in good condition complete with arcade monitor, J PAC Interface, Speakers and an Arcade VGA Card. The only thing I need to do is load up a PC and connect it up (and tidy up the living room and move stuff around to fit it in!)

Oh, and it cost me £63  ;D

really must stop buying back all the stuff I have sold. Just bought an Atari 800. That just leaves the 800XE to buy and I have the complete set of retail 8bit Atari Computers. Then it's time to find a 1250XLD and a 1400XL :D

Perhaps we should start stalking the local dumps then?

It really scares me to think about the stuff people dump.

Anyway, I am gonna slow down a bit on getting stuff as I am running out of wonga but I managed to get a fairly cheap UK version of the Fairchild Channel F.

nothing major, just a few old (boxed & complete) MS-DOS games (with both 3.5" and 5.25" floppies) and, a surprisingly rare item: a High Density 3.5" Amiga floppy drive (so can get 1.76MB out of the standard Amiga filesystem or a staggering 1.98MB with Diskspare)

Not computer related, but I just got a cheap second hand Panasonic TZ5 which arrived to day. As its the old model it can be classed as Retro  :)

Now I just need to work out how to use it and all the features!
