Hi

Post by grobda » Wed Nov 22, 2017 1:58 pm

My name* is grobda and i'm a retroholic.

Been playing games on computers since the Atari 2600. Then (parents) had a BBC Micro, had lots of fun playing chuckie egg and elite before By brother and I traded it in for a 520STFM. Upgraded that to 1 meg when I was a teen (mainly to play automation compact disk 46 <cough>). Now hobbyist and low-grade tinkerer with most things retro.

* - on forums :) came from having to select an IRC handle in early days of UKVAC arcade collectors.

Sure, IRC is still there, and I’d say more active than Usenet …
