Looking forward to it mate. The SG Octane is just for show really as it doesn't play any games therefore if we need / want another Amiga 1200 for Tourney's and stuff I can bring that instead? I've also got a wee Mac Classic I could bring - but again would just be for show as no games for it. Cheers, J

We could also have an Amiga just running Stunt Car Racer that folks can dip in and out of and record their best laps and see who has the fastest lap of the day at the end?

Yo Baz, added you to the 100% list :)

Wouldnt mind a bit of space for my TRS80, It's my own Hotrod machine with Hard Disc and full Hires Graphics.
I can also bring my Altera DE1 development board running a full Memotech MTX512 system with CPM

I can also bring a few screens if needed, i have a PVM, LCD TV and a BBC Cub for r0jaws...

I will also be bringing a brand new product for the BBC Micro to fit to r0jaws machine, clue, get Elite Executive ready ;)

:)

I will be available for anything that you guys need, if anyone wants an Atari video encoder fitted or any quick mods / repairs then let me know in advance so i can be fully prepared and equipped.

perfect thanks buddy, Zetr0 also asked for a list of machines that maybe broken, if anyone wants to bring a non working machine to be looked at can you list the model and what symptoms the machine has BEFORE bringing it to the meet?


Mike Penman will probably like to talk to a few of you guys, but of course you are more then welcome to decline :)
