And it might be in a tip and not my parent's loft.

Fuuuck.

How much is a bare 1200 worth with a mouse?

In all honesty, around £100. The 1200 is easily upgraded, so quite sought after

I sold my fully working A1200 with 80Mb hard disc for about... £20? With a stack of boxed games (admittedly few still worked). That was in 2003. Regret it now, even though I hadn't used it since 1996, well, apart from a week in June 2001.

The accelerator card is a big chunk of the value, as it lets you play all the WHDLoad games from a hard drive.

Not to hijack the thread or anything, but last night I downloaded a handy compilation including Rainbow Islands, Bubble Bobble and Parasol Stars for my CD32.

These games are brilliant. I love my CD32.

Poor cd32. Released at least a year too late and marketed by morons. How was it ever going to compete with the PlayStation?

I sold my A1200T with '060 accelerator and Mediator PCI interface (+Voodoo3) for £400 in 2003.

Get the impression I should have kept it, probably worth more than my house these days.

Eek! Abort, abort! It was joke... I don't even know what £250 looks like.

I sat at a BBC emulator until I finished Granny's Garden, probably six years or so ago now.

The end is bastardly unfair. No wonder very few people bothered.

Wish I'd spent that time typing swearwords into PODD instead.

I did. It was pretty fun. :attitude: was genuinely funny and excellently snarky about various things, most of the rest of the panel were great and did their best.

If nothing else we have confirmation that J Nash appears to be genuinely eccentric and I now have two more pronunciations of "Faragher" with which to contend should the subject of AP production editors occur in conversation at any point.

Did you get a J Nash photo?

Also, is "Turveyland" actual Turvey?

Do you know if anyone was filming it? Even just a smartphone video uploaded to YouTube would be worth a watch.

I enjoy watching Stu in action, even if it's just him blatantly pretending on the telly that a PC DIMM holds fruit machine programs.

Ha, as far as anyone could tell J Nash wasn't present though there was a genuine photo on the projected slideshow with an Animaniacs picture Ed comment obscuring his face.

Also;

Not that I've yet seen. There are some photos on Twitter but they're all pretty sterile.
