Ben at Phenoptix has made a nice hybrid handheld console - The PiBoy. At first glance this made me rather sad. Two classics brutally butchered for the sake of an ugly emulator.

This hard disk was in a PC that I picked up today. The person who gave it to me said I must destroy the hard disk. 

Unfortunately, a low level erase failed as there was too many errors on the disk. So I had to do something physical!

Retro & Vintage Computers, consoles and classic gaming.
Introduction
My name is Andy and I’m a collector of vintage and retro computers. I live in Whittlesey which is near Peterborough in the East of England. I have a mixture of systems in my collection from many manufactures including Amstrad, Acorn, Apple, Commodore, Sega, Research Machines, Nintendo, and Tatung. My first ever computer I had access to at home was a Commodore VIC-20, then a Amstrad CPC6128 then onto PCs and Apple Macintosh. I have been ‘retro computing’ for about 5 years now.
