Just had a look through the archive. No shots from when I was a kid, this is the earliest shot I have... Early 2002?

Edit, and this from early 2000?

Sorry, but this one's a bit too old. You wouldn't catch me going near a C64 anymore.. :lol:

Indeed. I bought them for £500 in 1992 and they're still used on a daily basis.

Considering you age there TRK that's a pretty sweet setup. :thumbup:

This wasn't my permanent set-up, Father Christmas didn't bring me my Amstrad Fidelity portable until the day after Boxing Day. This was my temporary Fergerson TV Christmas day set-up. I had to turn it off for Only Fools and Horses, obviously.

Adorable :whoopsie:

Although I loved it back then I wouldn't have a C64 nowadays either.

The Boss was proper lame but marginally better than those **** Cheetah things. I mostly used one of those pink-shafted PowerPlay Cruiser's :fastlove: which I remember as being pretty great by C64 stick standards. Not sure why I was using The Boss there tbh.

I can't remember what the swimming thing was for either. I done loads of swimming as a kid. I must've been proud of that cheev in particular to have it on my pinboard with some squadron badge on it though.
