Hi there guys,
I was doing a Google search on Amateur Radio here tonight, when this site came up.
It's a site owned by a local ham down south from here.
Some of the gear on this site should bring back some memories for a few of you here.
Enjoy. [Linked Image]

Thanks for the memories!

Went "Link Crazy" from the homepage, checking out pictures and information for 3 of my old machines - all are "Mothballed" and in storage at this time.

Even "revisited" the familiar sights of Clients' Machines, ones I dealt with back in the early 1980's to the mid 1990's, but completely vanished by 1996.
Some I completely forgot about - until today!

Sure makes me say:
"Wow, things have changed - big time!"
(both for the machines I dealt with, and for myself).

I never knew there was a Commodore 65.

Interesting, thanks for the link Mike!

Thanks Mike for that link, that brings back memories.
At high school 'Dag Hammarskjold ' in Assen N.L.(1980's) we had one PET 2000 computer for about 80 students. If you were lucky enough you could book ½ hour after school to have a play with it. The games we had were on cassette tape took 5 minutes to load, then verify and may be 10 minutes playing time. N.A.B. was then one of my favourite games.

Syntax error was no fun if it showed. [Linked Image]
usually ½ hour was over when game was working. The commodore 64 was a great machine too, amazing what you could do with 32 RAM memory.
Also listings of game programmes could be altered to change aspects of the game with PEEK and POKE commands and changing numbers around.

Although not as archaic as a Commodore, I just took down my PS/2 M70 "woodie" that has been running as a Fax and file server for about 15 years (office and later home).
I built it from spare parts in the early 90s.

I replaced it with a Thinkpad 365 that is a little better with power
