Hello from Vancouver BC, Canada!

Post by MrEe » Wed Dec 20, 2017 6:18 pm

Hello Everyone,

I recently purchased a BBC Micro from Ebay and had it shipped to Canada (!)

I'm a British expat who grew up in the UK and my first foray with computers was with the ZX Spectrum and then BBC B in the early 80's. This propelled me into a successful programming career and I can only thank the team vision at Acorn for opening the doorway for many of us like this. 34 years later, I'm diving back into what I think was one of the best machines ever made - I still marvel at the engineering prowess these guys had. BBC Basic/6502 bliss! Also, I'm really interested in getting the emulated co-processor running using the Raspberry PI to work on some Z80 projects.

All good fun, hope to see you around the forums sometime..

Why do I keep collecting Acorn gear? I'm going to need a considerably bigger man-cave. :?

Hi Mr Ee, Just noticed that you are in Vancouver. I am there too! Just recently met up with KarateEd who lives in Squamish, and we had a fun time with our Beebs. I'm also interested in Raspberry Pi projects, and anything related to educational s/w (I'm a Primary teacher who first used a BBC in school in 1982! Paul Ps I did send you a PM, but apparently we need to post 25 times before we can use PM here!
