Re: Computer show ala Top Gear.

features would include blowing up pet computers. Oy! That's one of the most iconic computers ever made. Whenever films or TV shows want a classic looking computer they choose a PET - see Terminator 3, The IT Crowd and Ashes to Ashes for some examples. The PET is the computer I learnt to program on ...

Re: Make your own teletext pages.

Make your own teletext pages.

I you have ever wanted to compile your own teletext pages and not found any utility to do it, I have found an editor that is pretty good. I have to screen grab to paint to save the images but the overall effects are good. I will put the link here and put some examples up. maybe others can add to thi...

Re: Projects featured?

failing that maybe a section or thread here to upload shots? The forum is open to any thread you like. If its gaming related, chuck it in 'All About The Games', if not, then put it in 'Off Topic'. We could use some new thread starters on new topics, we've been covering some old ground lately (just ...

Ideas for inteveiws.

I am sure that this is not the first thread devoted to suggestions on who retro gamer could interview next, so my apologies. But I wondered if it was worth trying to speak to Ben Heck? I read his blog from time to time and find the work he does pretty amazing, it would be interesting to see how he c...

Re: Introduce yourself

hi everyone, I was given an 'old computer' a jupiter ace when I was 12, I took it apart and glued the keyboard to my computer studies folder.

I am 35 and this still bothers me to this day :cry:

I am a bad person.
