Hello

Post by David_M » Fri Mar 16, 2018 1:47 am

Just found and joined the forum. Started computing by building a ZX81 but soon found it too limiting so built an ATOM. Working for a research organisation at the time who were keen on interfacing all their machines to computers (usually Commodore PETs).
I often used to take my ATOM in to work so that I could use the assembler to demonstrate working interfaces and to produce the code to run on the PETs. Later managed to reconcile the 'Bussiness' people who wanted CP/M and the 'Research' guys who just wanted to connect machines by using a Beeb with Torch Z80 card.
I now have a Beeb with 6502 2nd Processor, 5 1/4 and 3 1/2 floppies, CF-HD and tape plus my beloved ATOM, now with Acorn Disc Pack. I am loving wallowing in the nostagia and exploring the machines where I didn't have the time when I was working with them.
Thoroughly enjoying reading the posts here.
David.
