REPEAT:PRINT "Hello, stardot. ";:UNTIL FALSE

Post by paulxtr » Mon Jun 04, 2018 7:45 pm

Hi Folks,

Bit embarrassed to say that I've been lurking here for over 8 years :oops:

My first experience with a computer was on a 8" 4032 Commodore PET back in 1980 shortly followed by messing around on Uncle Clive's ZX80, which felt like a toy in comparison :lol:

First encountered a beeb back in spring 1982 when the school computer club took delivery of a model A with the infamous preliminary manual (where virtually every page stated "TBD", iirc).

Went to the dark side when I purchased a Commodore 64 in 1984 as sprites, more colours and fancy sound were perceived as more important than a solid operating system and excellent programming language to a naive teenager.

Now I'm the proud owner of a tricked-out Master with ARM7 CoPro, Sprow Ethernet, RetroClinic Data Centre & DualOS, ReCo6502 with 65816, VideoNuLA and last (but certainly not least!) a Pi3 coprocessor running PiTubeDirect.

I'm already indebted to this forum for some of the fantastic hardware and software its members have produced over the years =D> May it long continue.

Glad to finally be a member and, in some small way, hope to make a contribution.

Cheers,
Paul

Welcome, Paul. :D

The PET was a great machine BITD especially coupled with a dual floppy drive and printer.

I've never been to one. I'll try to get the next one when it's up north again.
