Hello from Hampshire

Post by FirstAtom » Tue Jan 05, 2016 10:59 pm

Hello All

I've been a member for a while now but have not been very active ... so one of my new year resolutions is to introduce myself and try and find the time to become more active! Wish me luck. :D

Acorn Atom
I have owned an Acorn Atom since I was a teenager and have many happy memories of typing in listings from magazines to get it doing something. As you can see from the photo, my Acorn Atom has seen better days, the keyboard needed replacement and some of the chip pins are falling off, one day I might try and get it working again! I learnt machine code and wrote various programs to make the speak play a tune and make the screen flash. I have programmed in various languages from C and C++ to C# and web development.

I have a little side project, which is an Acorn Atom Emulator, when I find time, I'll upload the code to one of the code sharing sites and let it loose!

Hopefully I'll not break my resolution and you'll hear more from me soon.

Regards

Chris

Hi Chris,

Welcome - as I'm sure you have noticed, there's lots of Atom related activity going on here.

We're trying to collect together an archive of all original Atom software (see this thread). If you have anything that's not been included yet, it would be great to be able to include a copy.

Have fun!

Dave

Hi Chris,

Greetings from the other end of Hants - that little island that you don't need a ferry to get to :)
