Hi from Pijnacker, NL

Post by berendvosmer » Tue Jan 13, 2015 7:03 pm

Hi all,

I'm 45 years old and live with my wife and 14 month old daughter in Pijnacker, NL.

During middle school I owned an Electron and played Elite endlessly during summer holidays with my friends. Later I owned an Atari 1040STF, Archimedes, RiscPC, then PC's and now I use a Mac.

Hit by a wave of nostalgia I bought a Beeb about half a year ago, did some repairs and loving tinkering with it. Got myself an old 9" monochrome Apple IIc monitor that still needs some repairing.

Also developed an interest in CP/M and the BBC Z80 copro and was delighted when I discovered hoglets and others work on the copro on an FPGA.

I'm hoping to do some sort of project and contribute, but things will be a bit slow in that department as my little girl is taking up a lot of time.

Anyway, thanks for letting me join. Happy beeb-ing to you all! :D
