Hi all just joined the forum to pick your brains, I have just got my first Acorn, we used the BBC's at school 30 odd years ago and always wanted one (took me a while), so when I saw a cheap electron I bought it. I will probably be posting a few questions in the days to come I thought I should introduce myself. Thanks all in advance.

All the best, Brendan.

I own an Elk and a Model B and I know which I prefer (!) but that's not to say I don't have a bit of a soft spot for the Elk - plus I've plenty of software tapes, books etc for it too so if you need anything - just holler!

Cheers and enjoy your little Acorn.

Baz.
