    Hi

    None of my family seem to be very interested, so I thought I'd talk about the highlight of my work day on here instead.

    A non-IT colleage at work was having a tidy out of some old cupboards, and found and passed on to us this piece of computing history:

    An original BBC Micro, complete with 5.25 inch floppy drive.:biggrin

    Hopefully, its between me and my boss, as the techs aren't that interested. I think he said I could take it home, and if so, it will be in pride of place on my desk by Monday night, next to my Casio VL-Tone. Its going to be fun playing on one of these again. I had my first database and programming experiences on one of these in Junior School back in 1987.

    Can't wait to get it working.
