Hello everyone

Post by mik » Fri Oct 16, 2020 10:44 pm

Hello, it's a long time since I joined an Acorn discussion group. I was pretty active on the various comp.sys.acorn groups up to somewhere around the mid nineties.

So you want to know my relationship with Acorn systems then... Let's see, started with school of course, mid 1980s. BBC micro programming got me through a GCSE and an A level by which time I'd bought my own as well. That machine went to university with me and was still being used into the mid 1990s. I still have it, recently restored to working order. Along the way I also worked in two different schools with BBC Micro, Econet, Archimedes in its various forms and Risc PC.

These days I mostly build and maintain Linux servers but I wouldn't be where I am today without all those Acorn systems I used, maintained and fixed over the years.

Welcome, lots of us owe a good part of our careers to Acorn, for me it was the Beeb.
