I don't recognise the PCB to the right, but it looks intriguing.

A very presentable Master 128 from RetroClinic (via eBay, UPS and Argos). Purchased Thursday evening, turned up this morning.

My first BBC.

Hmm... I'm going to need a smaller television.

Some magnetic cards for my TI-59 calculator from a great ebayer in the USA. Amazingly the calculator magnetic card reader still works after 40 years! :shock: :D
IMAG0923.jpg
And a TI-58C calculator fully working and with the charger from another great ebayer in the UK.
IMAG0924.jpg
All this gear is what I coveted BITD but could never afford. I have modern calculators that can out perform these machines but they are just not in the same league having 'dead' feeling keyboards and LCD screens that are useless in low light.

Mind you I have a TI-59 emulator on my phone and that is equally as good.
