Should I be concerned that I watched the Wurzels video all the way through?

Thanks to everyone again. I'm looking forward to the videos as I missed some of the afternoon.

We got our stuff from the ccfch gift shop today. Very happy except I got done over at top trumps by a 5 year old

I'm sorry I couldn't manage to attend for longer, but grumpy kids and a tetchy internet connection put paid to it in the end. I did really enjoy the talk on Steve Furber's Prototype (JudgeBeeb, maybe we could call it the "Furbertron"? :lol: ), as it mirrors the Acorn System stuff that I'm dabbling in at the moment. While restoring it to full working order may be unfeasible, I'd love to help reverse-engineer it, should I ever get down to a physical meet down there.

(did you guys notice you have an accent?)
Mine's a funny old mix of North-Walian, hints of Cardiff, and a generous dash of Torontonian, and is now accumulating bits of Derbyshire dialect from my wife and her family. It swings a lot depending on who I'm talking to and where I am: the last time I spend a month out in Toronto, when I came back my wife (fiancée at the time) said "what's happened to your vowels"! :?

Has she swiped the mug off my desk at work while I've been away? :shock:

Yes thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, thanks to everyone who did a presentation, clearly so much work had gone into them and it was great to see something so interesting and at a technical level I was interested in!

Sorry for the delay in sharing these links; the talks from the virtual event on the 16th May were uploaded to the Centre for Computing History's Youtube channel earlier in the week. Here's a handy playlist featuring all 10 talks.

The videos are also available via the new abug.org.uk domain.
