Hi, everyone!

Postby Micarone » Mon May 21, 2018 6:31 am

I'm a newcomer from Finland. Registered myself in just a couple of days ago and been enjoying wandering around this site. Never knew that this kind of site even exists, until I stumbled upon it while randomly searching a particular PC-game that I've been missing for a while.
Gladly, I found it at last and as a bonus, I also found this site, of course. :)

I'm a guy in my 40's (old bloke already) and have been messing around with computers since I was 13 years old, so I've had my fair share of different computers and games, as you can guess.
Have had some game consoles as well, but nowadays I'm centralized mostly on PC-games and some retro gaming. (Ahhh, the golden youth, you know... :D )

I'm not sure if anyone's even interested, but as far as I can remember correctly, I've had following computers: Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Commodore VIC-20, Spectravideo SVI-328, Amstrad CPC 464, Spectravideo SVI-728, Commodore 64, Commodore Amiga 500+ and more than 6 different PC's (counting in my current one.)
I listed those in order from 1st one to most current one.

Well... I guess that's all for now. Let's see around! Cheers! :cheers:

I took my time to read through the rules & guidelines and it should be all clear now for me. :)
I was already wondering if Mediafire uploads are allowed, but came up with the rule that only FD is allowed. That cleared it out.
Made myself an FD account. A free one for a starters.

Untick ISO. Click Ok and close 7-zip

*.001 files - Double click on one and Windows will ask you which program to use with the file type.

- THIS INCLUDES : THE "15 POSTS REQUIRED" RULE! - Say Hi, say hi to new users, you get through 15 posts easy.
This is to stop spammers uploading crap all over the board as it FORCES interaction - Getting pissed about it don't help !

- Play nice, however remember this forum is run by ADULTS and it aimed at ADULTS.
Taking offense is not worth it, and if this is too much then you really need to step away... There be Trolls in these parts !

Yep. I still have my C64 and Amiga 500+ and not going to sell or abandon them. :) Unfotunately, I sold my VIC-20 somewhere around 2013 and got some great profit from it with all it's accessories etc.

Edited,
But C64 and A500 are those keepers and not going to let them pass. :) Although, especially my C64 would be worth of some nice penny nowadays with all accessories I have for it, but no... C64 is going to stay. ;)
For my C64 I have original 1541 disk-drive as well as original "load-it" cassette drive. About 130-140 original games on cassettes and about 80-85 original floppy disks to go on with.

Jeez ! You got a C64 Tape Deck that still works ?!! WOW!
One of the most annoying tape decks in existence.... Complete nightmare to fix, esp if the read heads drop and trash every tape from that point.

Never a fan of C64 tapes...

Personally I was a ZX Spectrum and Atari ST user, programmer. I miss Z80...
