Hello from Greater Manchester

Post by DaveC » Wed Apr 01, 2020 11:25 pm

Hi, I'm Dave from Leigh, Greater Manchester. Just getting back into the Acorn scene.

First started using Acorns in school from 1990-1995. Used to love them.

First got my own A3010 in 1994 and loved it until I moved and ended up getting rid (the amount of software I owned at the time, I'm still gutted to this day).

I've recently purchased a RiscPC700 quite cheap off gumtree with LOADS of extras but having troubles with the starting so just finding the forums and stuff to meet other Acorn enthusiasts and to see if I can get help (if needed) in the future.

Thanks everybody for the messages. Been browsing through the forums, there is loads of info on here about anything and everything which is brilliant to know.

Another rainy day here so hoping the post man delivered my batteries and battery holder then I can see if the computer starts normally instead of del+power on
