Pictures of Our Babies.

Post by TMAOne » Tue Nov 14, 2017 4:34 pm

I'm not a new poster, but this seemed a logical place for the link below, to "my collection" of classic 80's retro-computers, including that first ever ZX81 that I assembled from the kit.

Not to plug a website I have no connection with, but imgur is a nice site for posting pictures and albums. I for one would enjoy seeing more photos of folks' sliced and diced Zeddy's. We all love to tinker, and we've been at it for over 35 years now. :lol:

This is one of the only group photos I have, when I used to keep some of my machines at my place of work for fun at lunchtime.

Ooh. A Jupiter Ace! Nice. :D

On the plus side I now feel better about my meagre collection! :shock:

A Jupiter Ace just went for a ‘reasonable’ £314! It was initially put up for sale at £1200 but amazingly no one bought it. Regardless of the white gloves shown in the photos!
