Re: Revival 2014 Event Feedback: did you go, what did you th

Re: School computers

Wow cool I didnt realise paintbrush was also available in the early days for DOS! Thats awesome! Kind of like windows 3.0 paintbrush but a bit more primitive, in a cool way :) Bet it must have been cool to use paintbrush on an old rm nimbus pc186!

Re: Retro TV that nobody seems to remember...

Aaah! Yeah quite a few programs I can remember, such as Every Second Counts with Paul Daniels, Crackerjack etc. Does anyone remember the childrens tv cartoon that Featured Hulk Hogan, and on the intro they was a mix of cartoon and live sections of Hulk Hogan.

Re: School computers

Re: School computers

I remember 'Pod' on our infant-school computers which I believe were BBC Micros ('Pod can.....', :lol: ) - a few of us did, I'm ashamed to say, derive some pleasure from making the poor little f*cker bawl his eyes out. My mum worked at the school (still does today) and so I also remember that we so...

Re: My old CPC 6128 with green monitor.

Have you had a look inside, sometimes on the Spectrum +3 disc drives, the belt snaps or slips off, i would imagine inside the AMSTRAD cpc 128, it has a similar design disc drive.

Re: School computers

On the subject of RM nimbus emulation via M.E.S.S. i am talking about the PC-186 variety (the intel). I found all the system roms, and have the blue welcome screen. Unfortunately the only welcome disk (the one with worm and train), is in FLP format, which MESS doesnt support. I am trying to figure o...

Re: School computers

Great news, MESS now supports Rm Nimbus Emulation, you do however need the system roms for it, i managed to get the RM NIMBUS welcome screen it says Please Supply an Operating System, but i need a disc image of some software, such as Paintspa, Caxton etc im working on it though lol
