Hello everyone,

What a great forum! We recently had a vintage computer fair at Bletchley Park in the UK and I went along as a friend was exhibiting his DEC gear.

Anyway the visit sparked a renewed interest for me in retro computing. I remember how much fun it was back in the 80's, a whole new world of wonder for a kid such as myself.

I was a Commodore fan, Vic 20, 64, Amiga and then ended up with PC's of various flavours and now Macs.

Since renewing my interest in old stuff I've acquired a Vic 20, an Epson PX-8 and I'm currently after an Atari Portfolio.

I came here as I'm on the hunt for seemingly very difficult to obtain PX-8 kit.

Anyway, thought I'd pop in to say Hi rather than just post in the wanted section.

Hello Charlie and welcome to the forums!

The Vic 20 was a first computer. Not for me, but for my father, who bought it in 1982 when he was 55! He was inspired by my Dick Smith System 80 (Video Genie to you) :)

Hi Tez,

Excellent, I fondly remember playing Blitz for most of Christmas Day 1982 on my Vic 20, a copy of which I still haven't managed to obtain.

Thanks for the welcome.

Charlie
