Maplins saved my (non argentinian) bacon over xmas,
as much as I take the piss over their pricing I've been surprised to use both local stores half a dozen times over the festives. It'll be a shame if they disappear.

I've spent the last 6 weeks resurrecting my Commodore PET 2001-32N from silicon heaven and the weeks running up to xmas bringing life to a PET 8096SK I bought bust back in 2001 for a tenner.
as part of my museum I've got all the MTXs in many form factors except the S2, they're like hen's teeth. I DO have a prototype 512 that never left the factory though, it was going to be properly aimed at business with an 80 column card and single floppy controller:
Should photograph my other RS128 too, it has an attached FDX repackaged into a PC case :)
it's a UK-ified Tandy Color Computer with fixed bits for UK TV amongst other things. I never wanted one back in the day as I was a Spectrum/Amiga kid :)
Feed your nostalgia with old photos I need to update as some of them are 10 years old, but the stuff still surrounds me - www.binarydinosaurs.co.uk
I should've been at VCF UK, I know.
Ale, because I'm drinking it.
