    Anyone got a BBC B / Master?

    Typical really, we had a mass clearout of gear a few years ago, including all these Acorn machines that we would NEVER use again....

    .... and now we actually need a BBC B / Master to retrieve some plotter code from a 40track disc !!!

    Not going down the ebay path (just yet) but is anyone willing to donate (or even sell at the right price) a working machine with a disc drive?

    I know someone had 30 odd machines they were chucking a few years ago but i doubt they still have them!

    Fingers crossed!!!

    I've got one, but your not having it sorry. It's quite a rare model/configuration so it's worth a lot as a collectors item.

    Before going for Ebay, it may be worth checking your local Freecycle group - great place for asking for things people have sitting around in their loft, or giving away the same

    I'll have a look in my ICT dungeon and see what's about but I have a horrible feeling I too cleared out all my old beebs with a tear in my eye a year or two ago. Still have a nice stack of A3010/A3000, Amigas, a very old mac and some other wierd bits and pieces. Which reminds me, i must find my copy of Mad Professor Mariarti (sp?)

    Re: Anyone got a BBC B / Master?

    Why would people throw them out?! They're classic machines Its sad that people get rid of them like that - at least sell them or give them away on freecycle or something!

    I have got one you could have but its slighty faulty hence why Id be fine getting rid of it. Its probably not much use to you though - some keys type different letters and some dont type anything

    If anyone else is getting rid of any BBC kit, I would love to get my hands on either a Model B (this was my second ever PC) or a Master 128....

    I would also love a Model B (that works - unlike mine)
    Still got joysticks, manuals, games and cables, just need a working unit!
