I forgot to mention that there was a brilliant comic drama on last night called ‘Micro Men’ featuring Alexander Armstrong and Martin Freeman as Clive Sinclair and Chris Curry (founders of Sinclair computers and Acorn Micro’s respectivly). It was really well done and an excellent insight into the world of computers in the early 80’s. It was on BBC 4 so i’m sure it’ll be on iPlayer somewhere, check it out.

My first ever computer was a commodore Vic-20 which mum & dad bought for me in 1981, I loved it.

It ruled.
