New member from North Notts

Post by OldYeoman » Tue Sep 22, 2020 5:15 pm

Hey all, just joined and thought I'd say hello. Currently living in North Nottinghamshire (or, as my wife would have it, the wrong side of the Yorkshire border).

Suspect my story is a familiar one - first used a Beeb in primary school in the 1980s, and carried on right through high school too (actually did my A Level Computing project on a Model B in 1997...). Had an Acorn Electron as my first home computer too. So set up well for a career in software development...

Have been lurking on here for a while, and already found a load of really useful stuff. Just bought myself a Model B, so hopefully will be able to contribute something back too...

Welcome.
What plans do you have for your Beeb?

The idea is to have a play round and see what I can build (more interesting on a Micro than an Ardunio!). Have picked up a Raspberry Pi second processor emulator to try that too - didn’t even know those were a thing back in the day...

But I’ll probably end up just playing Chuckie Egg...
