New user from York, England

Post by apt-e » Thu May 16, 2019 9:34 am

Hi All,
Just a quick hello to everyone on this forum.
I am an old school computer collector, being involved in computers since I was 9, I am 51 now.
I have a nice sized collection of computers, from 1978 onwards. 69 in total.
I am interested in all aspects of the computer revolution, but mainly the home side from 1978 - 1996.

Working in the IT industry since 1986 - present , at a local college.

If I can help out with any questions, I will do, always nice to share information and keep the old systems working.

Anyway, welcome all, look forward to speaking to everyone.

Regards

Paul
