Hello from Finland!

Post by Cosmo » Fri Feb 23, 2018 7:26 am

Hi all.

I don't (yet) have any Acorn BBC products, but soon, i should receive BBC Master 128 with Datacentre etc. I've wanted one for some time as i am not familar with much British made 8bit models at all. My background is at using/collecting Apple ][ and ///, Commodore 64 & Amiga, Atari 8bit, Macintosh, MSX-computers but i've never much used Spectrum, BBC or Amstrad. I do have ZX81 however that would use composite output-modification to ease the usage.

I am very much interested learning more about this interesting brand and model! There seems to be *lots* of addons and newly developed hardware for it as well.

Thanks guys!

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

Thank you all!
Now before i get my Master, i'll need to get myself into reading some manuals about the model.
Already picked few games (tapes) online just for the fun of it.
