Greetings from Hove, actually!

Post by Kai Robinson » Wed Mar 13, 2019 12:11 am

Hello!

My name is Kai, i've been lurking as a reader for a while, on and off, finally decided to setup a forum account. I recently bit the retro bullet and got myself an A500+ again. I had an A500 back in school and later I also managed to get the schools old 1040STFM before it went in the skip. I always regretted getting rid of both of them as years passed by. I'm into electronics, and i love the idea of building an accelerator, or even just re-capping boards...i have a disease, i know! :D

I work for Unity Technologies in IT support, so i'm surrounded by tech all the time, but something keeps drawing me back to the 'simpler' stuff.

In my spare time I can usually be found reading articles on something nerdy, underneath the bonnet of my BMW, in the kitchen making dinner for the wife or streaming something on Twitch (usually Elite Dangerous/The Division/Fallout 4)
