Re: Jogos 80 Issue 13 (Sinclair Building)

Marcus, Have you thought of doing an English language version of this 10th anniversary edition. I am sure it would get great readership.

Re: My small collection of classic British computers

Dear friends, I got new furniture for my collection room, I did spend the whole weekend trying to fix a new and decent scheme for comfortably using my stuff and for receiving my friends (it was simply too crowded with stuff). Check the photos below. I still have to finish things.
