Takes me back. Actually, they weren't bad. I wrote a dissertation on it and got it to play cricket by loading up basic in CPM+

It's been a long long time since the last time I used it.

3 Hours I think.

Cute. I also had one of these, 8512 I think. But IIRC it was a Schneider, maybe licensed?

I wonder if you could make money out of a site selling stuff people used to have. IUsedToHaveOneOfThose.com

Everyone in Germany had a C64. Except a friend, who had a Atari 800.

I bet they still call him "Atari" today

I had one of these http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bbc_computer from around 1985 to 1990. Elite, Defender and Chucky Egg were fantastic!

We had an 8088 for a while (I think). Still used it into the 90s.
