Here's a museum in Maryland USA I wouldn't mind a wander around, this is exactly what I'd like to do here if only I had the cash!

NEW PAGE! Yes, the first new inhabitant page since it was all unsigned integers and non-leaky batteries around here. 
 
My STC Executel page is now online even though I haven't fixed the machine in question yet. Wallow in 1980 phone nostalgia. And a leaky battery.

Webserver upgrade yesterday broke quite a few things! Still, I took the opportunity to fix a few niggling bugs that I'd not looked at for $years like the Inhabitants page sort order and picture display for some of the bigger adverts. Now it will scale the picture and provide a link for full size goodness.

This shows you how far we've come - emulate a Classic Mac in your browser with a couple of 'hard drives' full of Internet Archive programs and games, do it now!

Just because 'he can' Bill Buzbee over in California has made a totally custom built-from-scratch-with-discrete-CPU machine with its own OS and TCP/IP stack. Check out the Magic-1 here:

Happy 35th birthday to the ZX Spectrum! Arguably the reason a lot of us are still doing this 'computer' malarkey. A round of applause for Uncle Clive, Steve Vickers, Richard Altwasser, Rick Dickinson, John Grant and everyone I've forgotten.

I realised I'd not listed my Multitech Microprofessor MPF-II despite owning it for at least 10 years. Oops.

I've finally - FINALLY - managed to add and photograph the Osborne Executive I was given by Alan Hanks many years ago, It all works nicely too.

Well this could be entertaining for a wee while - a 4.3BSD Unix that runs in usermode on a 68k Mac without an MMU. TCP/IP and NFS support too!

After a trip to Worthing last weekend to meet Paul Miles, ex of STC, I'm now home to much Executel goodness including 2 boxed machines and service docs along with all the source code :D 
 
(I just need to learn PLM now)

After seeing a post on Twitter earlier I realised I'd never created a page for my Microwriter MW4, so here it is!

Fully restored a pair of TRS80s in the last couple of weeks, go me. Therefore I've updated the Model 1 page and added a page for the Model 4P I realised I'd never created.
