Great day at #BrandsHatch  for the #F1  Masters racing. Sad to see this March 811 completely destroyed, but sure they will re-build it after an all-nighter :)

Yeah, he rolled it on a pretty fast bit of track. Driver okay though. Thankfully they were all wearing HANS devices, not like the authentic good 'ol days where he had a 30% chance of survival :)

+Retro Games Collector It was incredible mate.  To see cars that were actually driven by James Hunt, Ayrton Senna, Ronnie Peterson, Francois Cevert, Jackie Stewart and many others! And to actually hear them, full throttle from 20ft away, made my chest hurt from just the sound vibration, plus my ears are still ringing :)
Just posted the full album. Was a fantastic day :)

It's just a guess but I assume the #BBC   has no intention of showing any #F1   races in 2015 :) #BBCf1   #BernieEcclestone

+Ant Harper ha! sounds like a nice pick-up mate, I have a few of those and 4 Electrons :D
I'm running out of space but more importantly the other half is running out of patience, that's the biggest headache :)

Expanding my #Electron  empire. Added a Plus 1 interface today and a bunch of books and games. Mega fun! #retrogaming  
Particularly looking forward to seeing how the version of Commando compares to the #Commodore   #C64  version :)

+Retro Games Collector Yup, I had the 81 and Speccy as my weapon of choice in the 80's and very glad I did. This is the 1st time I've laid hands on the Electron, ever!
Great little machine but the software is light years away from any of the Sinclair machines, you could say it was at the other end of the Spectrum (Fnar, fnar!)

I am me... that is all
Introduction
Born in the 60′s, child of the 70′s, geek of the 80′s, no memory of the 90′s, survived the noughties and now in the twenty-tens I look back at the things I am proud to have done and the things I missed out on doing... my bucket list is endless.

I have been loving videogames since 1976. I used the internet before it was the internet. I watched the original release of Empire Strikes Back at the cinema… 4 times. So I’m old and grey, but with a reasonable grip on my sanity. I failed school at the age of 15 and now have a shitty desk job; let that be a lesson to you pesky kids, play games, but LEARN while you can.

I own, and enjoy, the following consoles: Xbox 360, PS3, Ninty Wii, PSP, DS, Quad-Core PC, Xbox1, PS2, Gamecube, Dreamcast, N64, PS1, Sega Saturn, SNES, Sega MegaDrive, Commodore Amiga A500 & A1200, Atari ST, Acorn Electron, Commodore 64, BBC Micro, Oric-1, Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Sinclair ZX81, IBM PC-AT… and many many more!

I <3 retro!

Part time jobs include crossing the galaxy in search of good coffee and cheesecake, F1 racing driver, astronaut and time traveller… although nobody knows it yet because I haven’t reached the future moment where this all begins.
