Hello from Nottingham

Postby andy rea » Fri Sep 01, 2017 4:15 pm

Hello my name is Andy Rea, some people might know me from the ZX81 ( is that blasphemous round here? ) land :D

I've had my Beeb model b for a while but it has had very little use over the last year BUT that about to change I've bought a Retro Clinic DataCentre and am looking forward to re learning everything i forgot about the beeb.

Regards Andy

Welcome Andy, enjoy your BBC! I hope you will get used to that clumsy, old fashioned keyboard of the BBC coming from the convenient macro-enabled touch keypad you are used to. :D

If you could also give Mark a list of dates when you're likely to be on holiday, approximately where in the house you store your Acorns, and the code to the burglar alarm, that'd be grand :wink:
