    Cheers matt, Glenn. And seriously nice job on the cover there, really impressed… Got all the computers in there… I really love the red and black of the atmos, always though it a compact nice looking machine.

    Not sure about that dodgy looking guy though! Lol

    Its seriously fun to audition, anyone toying with the idea, just do it!

      Glad you like the cover mate, apologises that it was a bit late. Anyway as the guys have already said, a great audition and very interesting too!! Well done!

  4. Remember kids. Never ever EVER under any circumstances send your photograph to this lot. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

    Great job mate, sorry for the late reply following holidays, I’ve been catching up with the last few episodes. Enjoyed hearing about the machines you had including the lesser known Oric and hearing about the Electron again kicked me to go order a set of RAM chips to fix the one that’s been sitting in my cupboard, broken for ten years!

    It’s amazing how many of us got into software development because of our experience with home computing in the 80’s and 90’s. It’s certainly this that sparked my interest and as is usually the case, it was the want to write my own games that got me hooked. I’d definitely suggest (if you have the time) you try your hand at assembly language again. Coming at it from a more experienced angle can make it seem a lot easier that it felt back in the day, and with a plethora of advanced development platforms for machines like the C64 and CPC it’s more accessible than ever before!

      Thanks Andrew, I really enjoyed yours too. Bought myself a Dizzy bead character at Revival, always liked Treasure Island Dizzy. I will have to play all the others because I mainly only played that one, on speccy and amiga.
