Hi from bavaria ...

Postby YuT666 » Mon Dec 04, 2017 9:19 am

Hi,

my name is Tom, i'm from Lower Bavaria / Germany and i'm working as an CNC-Engineer. I'm married the second time and my lovely wife and i have two children.

My first contact with homecomputers, consoles and stuff was an old Intel Video Game in the 70s & my first "real" Homecomputer an Amstrad CPC 464. After this i collected a lot of computers like MSX, Thomson (mainly), Robotron, different Atari ST Versions, some Sinclair ZX, Acorn Electron, BBC Micro and Master, TI-99/4A, Oric 1 & Atmos, Sharp MZ, Tandy CoCo, Tatung Einstein and many others.

My other hobbies are ice hockey (played many years), death- and grindcore music, older gaming consoles like Atari Jaguar, Sega Saturn & Dreamcast, disturbing apocalypse movies and cars ...

Here's a small part of my collection.

I'm repairing and modding some old computers and it's still great ...

Cheers

Tom

A warm welcome to the forum, that looks like a great collection. Even the Electrons are not yellow!

I also recommend Damnation Alley as a great apocalypse film! :D

Thanks for your welcome ... and yeah, Damnation Alley is a good old b-movie with a very well acting George Peppard (maybe only my opinion).

Thanks again and ... the TO9 looks like a beast, but it isn't ;) ... anyway ... i love this machine.

Motorola 6809e with 1MHz ans 128KB RAM :mrgreen:

An Amstrad CPC6128 and Commodore C128 competitor but with much less popularity.

Bought this one as "defective" but i managed it to repair this great piece of hardware.
