This has to be the first thing I have seen where it has hit home just how old I am now.

Watch the primary school kids faces... the c64 was pretty advanced too.

Ah, the nostalgia - the C64 was our second computer after a Speccy. Couldn't help feeling that if only he'd managed to salvage a working disk drive the "experience" might have been presented a bit more smoothly but it was a valiant effort nonetheless.

Agreed, great to see the c64 and stuff from the early days.

Although I was shocked that the kids of a younger age didn't know what a joystick was, nothing against them of course why would they I suppose, but a shock to see things move on so quick.

So many British visionaries have been fabulous and genius engineers like Sinclair and Brunel but bloody hopeless business men in the long run.
