  1. Mine busted and i ripped it to bits to see what it looked like inside. If you’d like a scan of the plastic substrate with the keymap on it from a 6128 I can scan it in and send it to you

  2. An Internet search for GX4000 could be tricky. Unless you want a hockey stick:

    Then again, I tell a lie, in amongst the GX4000 composite hockey sticks is this:

    (and a few cartridges there as well. I looked on G+ shopping but it looks like most of them are on ebay so might be good to search there – or even try fatfingers in case someone doesn’t know how to spell GX4000)

    THEN you have to track down a 6128 plus.

    I have a question though. I don’t want to go the full hog and start collecting 8 bit computers but are there any companies out there who sell normal tape drives/ 3 inch floppy drives / 8 inch and 5 1/4 inch floppy drives? It’d be nice to use emulators with original source software, or buy old games from junk shops and rip the disks to image.

  3. I loved my CPC464. I still have the monitor and an MP3 (as in the TV tuner, not music player) in the loft. I used the monitor for years after I’d retired the 464 with my Amiga 500+, then with a PS1 via the TV tuner. Because the tuner is analogue (literally – has a dial) it’s bloody good for using with retro 8bit computers. Digital tuners pretty much suck.
