    Well that's a blast from the past

    On a visit to a school in another county was amazed to see not one but three acorn A3000's still running in their eyfs department with Turtle! Feeling nostalgic as I had them when I was at school.

    Amazed they lasted this long!

    Which school? When they stop using them I'd like to see if I could acquire one.

    Seriously - see if they'll agree to sell another.

    I tried to get an A3020 through a private sale earlier this year and it fell through. My RISC PC is still in good working order! 20 years old in November!
