Today, I have just a Raspberry Pi Model A+, packaged as a Lapdock cartdrige.
Pyra and Titanium are on my buying list for 2017... or not :)

I've had this Master for a while now but what I didn't do was post the serial number anywhere. I'm not sure if this is the right part of the forum for this, I seem to remember there 'might' have been a better thread but can't seem to find that.

Anyway, I just want to ensure this number does not get lost for all the people keeping records for posterity.

The last number is hard to read, hence the reason for two pics so people can see the authenticity of the machine.

Might as well snaffle a serial number from an Electron in this YouTube video: 07ALA01-0093846 :D

Was reading this PDF and it suggests that the number off A440 (not A440/1) produced might be significantly higher than the calculations in the first post suggest…

http://chrisacorns.computinghistory.org ... SNews2.pdf

It lists the range of serial numbers that need certain field changes applying. For the A440, this lists a set of patches that need applying to the machines with serial numbers in the range 27-AKB20-1000479 to 27-AKB20-1002255 which is significantly higher than previously estimated. It'd be interesting to know where they all ended up…

Electron : 02-ALA01-0000867 , now to wait for it to turn up, hopefully turn on [-o< , then dish washer :lol:
well, it's a worker with original working 'brick' 19v AC adaptor \:D/

Lets see, here's my stuff:-

Electron: 07-ALA01-0293089
Electron: 07-ALA01-0020153
BBC Master Compact: 25-ADD04-10 28724
BBC Master: 01-AMB15-0233690
Acorn A3020: 93-AGB22-1019889
Acorn A3010: 25-AGB11-1010603

There is another Electron in my collection but it's serial number has gone, possibly because someone put it in a dishwasher?!?! I have heard of retrobrite for yellowed plastic, but until I came to this forum, I never heard of putting old computers in a dishwaser! Does it really work? I spent a couple of hours scrubbing an Electron case and the keys recently, so it would be a time saver if it does indeed work (as long as no one tells the wife what I might have put in the dishwasher).

Can you double check this one please? It's 100,000 out from the current highest 07-ALA01 serial!

Also, for the Compact, could you post the keyboard serial as well as the disc box serial? I'm using the former to track numbers as there seem to be more than a few keyboard-only Compacts in use.

Sure can Sarah,

Didn't realise the Compact had a separate keyboard serial, but I have checked and no, I can't :-( The label is partly torn away on the keyboard.

Electron SN is correct though. You know, you had me thinking I had gone mad, berating myself for failing to copy a simple number correctly. Turns out I am sane after all... Well, who knew, me sane? :-D

See attached pictures of proof of my sanity. Although my friends will probably say "jury's still out" on my sanity plea!

Here goes -

BBC Master 128: 01-AMB15-0079999 (so close :D)

https://www.instagram.com/p/BrGCoYtnXgS/

I think the F key insert was for Citadel 2... I developed it originally by swapping the source code out of sideways RAM in chunks.

A3000 (at my folks :))

RISC PC 600: 72-ACB25-1011239

https://www.instagram.com/p/BrGDxL3HDzO/

Also had a BBC Model B (which I sold unfortunately)
