  1. Chuckie Egg….two words that bring tears to my eyes…the only game I was ever any good at.

    What’s sad is my programming has never progressed far beyond the stuff I learned on a BBC…and yet I program as a regular part of my job.

  2. Enjoy! πŸ™‚ I have one with the connections for a doomsday disk laserdisk system (but no laserdisk player or doomsday disk!) plus the original I had upgraded (pimped in todays jargon?) with sideways ram, shadow ram etc…but I always play the old games on an emulator on the PC instead these day.

    Can’t beat that 2 tone start up beep to be ready to roll. Microsoft’s aim for Instant on Windows? Acorn beat ya too it.

    My only sad regret about the beeb is that I’ve lost the disk I’d coded a 100% machine code version of tetris on (with Mode 2 sprite graphics code, high score table etc) πŸ™

  3. My school drew a name out of a hat to take a BBC home for the holidays, and one holiday my name came up…

    Ah, Defender how I loved thee…

  4. Even I remember these, we still have one on the loft at home, never thought anyone would buy it. Unfortunately my technophobia was revealed at an early age and I never mastered chuckie egg.
