It was a steal at 41, boxed (Cartoon Classics collection - pretty sure that's the one I had as a kid) and opening the box of games I spotted a boxed copy of my favourite game of the time - Syndicate.

On the hunt for an Atari 2600, now, and perhaps an A1200.. must install more desk space in the office  :D

68k was the first kind of assembler I dabbled with..

.. and so it came to pass that Aaronjb spent the winter playing Dig Dug rather than finishing the Cobra. ::)

Yes, it was certainly a lovely machine from a programmer's perspective although it needed a lot of supporting hardware to give its' best.

I lost the will to live when I looked at the x86 after the 68k. :o

I still have a couple of 6809 SBCs kicking around that I built when I was at school. ;D

The 2600 is for Louise .. I never had one as a kid, but she has fond memories of playing Space Invaders on one :)

To end the thread drift ;D - if you haven't been to the Museum of Computing History in Cambridge, you really should go.. it's only 8 and (almost) everything is hooked up, working and playable with..

Hadn't heard of that one and we have relatives near Cambridge. :y

Need to go to the Bletchley one again some time, too.

I think my old A500 is up in the loft...   ...ever since I moved 17yrs ago, and I bet it was in the loft of my old house for the 9yrs I lived there.

Wonder if it'll fire up...


Talking of 68000s, I have a couple of QLs here, being a Sinclair boy.

If you didn't have an RTC card fitted, there's a good chance.. don't suppose you're also hoarding a Phillips CM8833 or equivalent Commodore monitor, are you? ;)

I lusted after one of those as a +3 owner (and prior 48K owner) .. I still find them intriguing today, one day I'll have a play on one for old times sake.

No need to wonder if the QLs will fire up, then? ;)

I made the mistake of taking Mrs. KW to a radio rally recently. I was worried that she would put a curb on my collecting junk but she seemed keen to come, so why not? She ended up staggering to the car with an iMac G3, purchased for the princely sum of 10 because it was "funky", apparently. ::) Then she remembered that we were in the MX 5 and I ended up with it on my lap the whole way home. >:(

Still works, mind. The HDD is predictable whiny, though.

The QLs did last time I tried, about 4 or 5yrs ago. Amazingly the keyboard still worked, as did the Psion office package Microdrive cartridge.


The SNES came out about the same time, fully working, and I'm still the billy 'dangle berries' at Super Mario World ;D.  I think there is a NES up there.

Defo still got my Speccy with inteface 1 and Microdrive, and interface 2 with Jetpac cartridge :). And a ZX81.  Just need an analogue telly now ;D

I have two iMac G4s in the loft (the one with the half-sphere base and LCD monitor on a flappy arm) .. one powers on briefly (I suspect shot caps) and the other is DOA. But they were skip-dived and look cool  ;D
