Awww Bless! - Retro computing pic of me
My father sent me this last week after he had spent a bit of a marathon session with a negative scanner. It's me, circa 1982/3 with my first computer, the illustrious ZX81
I love the way I appear to be coding something - which must have been a game - and due to the lack of any computer desks back then I'm on the floor :/
Oh yes! And note the black and white portable TV with dial tuner
Anyone else got any retro pics of themselves with classic computers/consoles?

The closest I'd have would be of me playing sonic on a megadrive. Does that count as retro?

Actually, I'm starting to feel a little old now, and unless someone pulls an ace and has a piccy of them with a ZX80 I'm in trouble......

I think the latter, I'm 24. I was about 7-8 when I got my first computer/console.

Nice 16K RAM Pack.
I built a wooden tray for mine to stop it falling off during marathon coding typing.....

I stuck with the tried and tested Blu-Tak. By the time I got rid of it (I had it for about 3 years) it had a proper keyboard and a whole raft of add-ons. I wish we'd kept it now. It'd probably be worth a fortunes for the add-ons alone!
I 'upgraded' to a Commodore C16, then to an Atari 130XE and once I'd been posted to Germany with the army finally got myself a C64

I had an orginal game boy but no computers until id left school at 16 and that was a pc world special!

I was given an Amstrad CPC464 and then upgraded to the newer one...which in my head was a 646, but i might have made that up. It had a cartridge reader in the side of the keyboard and came with the game Burning Rubber i think....
EDIT: Actually im getting them the wrong way around i think....

I still have my white ZX80 in a box [ working ] and it's something I will never sell or get rid of.
