Hi All.!

Postby spark001uk » Thu Oct 12, 2017 4:25 pm

Good morn/afternoon/eve depending where you are,

Just a quick joiner's hello from finest Surrey UK.!

I was an 80s BBC-B school programmer kid, always wanted to own one but they were a bit expensive. Mind you, all these years later I look on eBay and it seems they still are!! Good quality holds the price I say.
I'm an electronics engineer now though, so it probably wouldn't matter if I got one that required a little attention.

At the moment I do have a fiddle around with BeebEm but it's not quite the same as having that warm circuit board/component smell wafting occasionally past the nostrils, who's with me on that?!
