@Vincent
Back to the future...LOL !!!

@Komies
I also had the C64, Amiga 500 and Amiga 1200, With Amiga I did a lot of animations that bought me!

But this animation is entirely made with BluffTitler, except for loading rows that are a video.

Never had a Commodore....how about the Bally Home Library from JS&A. Still have it along with my COCO with tape and 5 inch dual floppy drive.

Nice little blast from the past Franco!! Thank you ,

@Komies

Thanks for the suggestion, I had started to do so, but after that, I preferred to insert the video. I'll fix it !

Abort Retry Fail

I had a Sinclair ZX81 with 1K RAM.
I bought a 16K Ram Pack that could be connected to the rear of the 'computer'. It worked fine in theory but in reality, the connection to the circuit board edge was poor and after many hours of programming, the connection was often lost owing to slight movement of the ram pack. The air would be blue with profanity and frustration was obvious.
Oh the good old days.

Here is the Bally Astrocade or as JS&A sold it the Bally Home Library Computer System. To the left is the Basic Cartridge and the interface for the printer or tape deck storage.

Machine had a whooping 1.8K of RAM.

@Vincent.....thinking about cleaning it out. Balley and Coco are there along with a bunch of Revell Model kits and some RC birds with a Futaba system. Some round ball ammo for my muzzle stuffers, paintings I had commissioned overseas. Old stereo stuff and more junk!

It gets a little cooler and I'm going to venture up there....come on over, you can risk your life too! LOL
