Hi from London!

Post by studio_lowfi » Tue Sep 15, 2020 1:06 am

Hi everyone. Have often glanced through this forum over the years, but during lockdown I finally resurrected a BBC B+ I had up in the loft and also started building my own 6502-based computer.

I grew up with my dad's BBC micro, spending endless hours playing Space Pilot and writing rudimentary programs in BASIC to print rude words on the screen. Sadly my dad never upgraded to an Archimedes, I remember us keeping the beeb into the early 90s before a quantum leap to a 486 PC.

Looking to learn a lot more about refurbing and upgrading the BBC, as well as ideas for my own homebrew 6502 machine.

Cheers!

Perhaps now you could graduate to writing rudimentary programs in assembler to print rude words on the screen?
