This might be an opportunity to sell on some of my retro stuff that's been piling up in my attic.

I wonder if anyone would be interested in a couple of Acorn Electrons with tape decks and software? I got them from a church fate many years ago, and I think it's about time I sold them on!

I've also got a boxed C64C with C2N and tapes I really should sell too. I don't really want a stall though.

Be careful with that
Some of those things can be heavy so the table might topple over

I'll probably have the twin famicom off you, for the right price ;-)

Sscott, is there somewhere i can make a pile of joysticks and bits that people can rummage through and take for free, I'm having a bit of a clearout at the moment.

Having to look after one of the dogs for the weekend has scuppered my plans for hanging around too much, unless noonw minds me bringing him along. Unfortunately the calm dog that would currl up and sleep somewhere is the one going away for the weekend, so I'm left with the insane one that would have to make sure he said hello to everyone, repeatedly, for hours, lol

And another :(

Oh well, just means I won't have to spread myself so thin trying to catch everyone I want to. There'll be other events, you will fold eventually and come to another, its inevitable.

Another sad. Antiriad, there will be a frosty beer for you on the Friday night, I know what an effort it is coming down from waaaay up North, also to anyone else who's helping out on Friday! The event is as much yours as mine, I'm just leading it - thats all. Tickets, I've held back - all tickets will be sent out next week, well in advance.
Those helping out PM me and I'll send you my phone no. and address.
Cheers,
Shaun
