Hello - I'm a Commodore user in an Atari world here ;-)

Post by Error42 » Tue May 07, 2019 1:36 pm

Hello, I just thought I'd join in over here as I've heard this is a nice place to be as far as forums go.

My main retro interest is the Amiga, although I do have some other systems too like the Spectrum, Acorn A3000, BBC micro etc.... err no Atari though... sorry! :-)

I've been watching Stephen's development of his TerribleFire boards and will hopefully get around to building and using a couple myself at some point, once I get my soldering work good enough anyway.

Most of what I own is either non-functional (at the moment) and some systems don't have their original casings so are just PCB's. But that's fine because I'm hoping to do various modding with some of them anyway.
Over the last 10 years or so I've collected various hardware, thankfully I managed to get hold of most of it before the prices got as silly as they are now. So currently I'm going through that bit by bit and either making use of it, or selling it on... to fund other purchases of course :-D

I have a You Tube channel, also called Error 42 which I started this year, the videos aren't great and there's not much on there yet but it's a start.

Hopefully at some point I may be able to answer some questions on here rather than just asking them ;-)

That's good hear, I'm always a bit wary of those sane people ;-)

Welcome :-)
I’m most interested in Atari (16 bit), but have a wide range of hardware from consoles, neogeo, pcb, c64 and even Amiga ;)

Long live retro computing!

:welcomewave: I was an all time Sinclair and Atari user, but I now own Atari and Commodore stuff. That rivalry of which is the best computer is something of the past, now it's childish.... So, being a Commodore user in an Atari world shouldn't be something weird, isn't it? ;)

Atari 8 bit: 800XLF, stock - 600XL, Ultimate 1 mb, Sophia RGB - 130XE, 320 kb, Sophia RGB

Sinclair stuff: 3x Spectrum 48KB, Clones: Harlequin, JS128, Nuvo128 and Issue3B replica.
