Postby Old Kent Biker » Thu Feb 20, 2020 6:12 pm

Hi, I'm Martyn, from Kent, UK.

My first computer was a ZX81, in 1982, followed by a Spectrum, then later a QL. I then passed over to the dark side and got a PC (It was actually an Amstrad Sinclair PC200 - yes I was one of the few that bought one!) and whilst working as a COBOL programmer on ICL mainframes, and various roles involving Unix minis and various other platforms, have since dabbled with various PC-based emulators.

I only heard of the Next a few weeks ago, but wish I'd got in on the ground floor - looking forward to Kickstarter 2, and hope that will come to fruition quicker than the first round.
Regards to all,

Sinclair Computers: ZX81, Spectrum 48K, QL, PC200
