Hello and thank you for visiting vintagecomputers.wordpress.com!
My name is Andy and I’m a collector of vintage and retro computers. I live near Peterborough, England. I have a mixture of systems in my collection from many manufactures including Amstrad, Acorn, 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 3 years now.
The first computer I used at school was a BBC Model B – a proper vintage computer. When I moved up into secondary school, we used RM Nimbus PC-186. (Not so cool machines! Well, apart from some games like Trains)
I am also the volunteer co-ordinator for the “The Centre for Computing History” which is a computing museum based near Cambridge. I was at VCF 2010 at Bletchley Park, and many smaller events in 2011 and 2012. You can read more about the museum on their website http://www.computinghistory.org.uk/
