Hi from Sean

Post by mrvernall » Fri May 22, 2020 9:26 pm

Hi guys, just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Sean a computer science teacher from Lincolnshire, UK. I have a strong passion for the old Acorns. I was in secondary school in the early 80s and so I was part of the BBC Computer Literacy Project. My school was very lucky in that we had an entire computer lab filled to the brim with 25 Model Bs. My first home computer was an Electron, which I learnt to program through the weekly guidance of Input magazine. I became a programmer after leaving school, which of course meant moving on to a new partner in the form of IBM. However, my love for the Beeb has always remained. I'm now in the process of restoring a model b to it's former glory so that it can take it's rightful place in my class for a new generation of students to fall in love with.

Welcome, Sean. :D

The BBC works very well in the modern classroom. Focuses the mind beautifully - no internet! :lol:

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. Am really looking forward to the restoration and chatting with you all at some point. Have just recapped the PSU in the old girl and am currently cleaning and checking for visual problems. Will keep you updated.
