Back in the days when computers were still fun, educational, innocent and serving us.

Unlike today where computers are used to indoctrinate and spy. :twisted:

Its gonna suck us dry

Good work posting those vids, cheers. I'd bite their hands off for the prom programmer (2nd video 10:33) - thats cool kit

Remember the 1st pic below? After some capacitor work, rewiring and a good clean, I added a ROM chip that enabled an MMC with 2000 games+tools (£30) and a manual volume controller with audio line out. Its now RGB to SCART so the picture is perfect and can be viewed on large screens, but still choose to use a 14" CRT because its just better.

Reconditioned the tape cassette player recently after finding a box full of tapes (striking gold)

Those tapes loading up are the true sounds of the 80's
