What a crazy situation to be in, you’re about to make a cup of tea then all of a sudden you find yourself sitting down having a Retro Tea Break whilst being interviewed about your life and your work – I say interviewed, talking with Neil is more like sitting down with a mate and having a good old chin wag.

But in all seriousness, when Neil contacted me for an interview, what could I say? His channel is awesome, a real treasure trove of quality content professionally presented and edited – a proper treat if retro computing hardware, software and history is your thing. I was trying to think of what RMC feels like to me, and I reckon a close comparison would be to that of a TV show that would be on now if computing TV shows were still on the telly. You know the sort of shows that you kind of remember forever. For someone like me growing up in the 70s and 80s it would be like remembering BBC Micro Live especially that episode where we all got to see a glimpse of the mighty Amiga A1000.

Office Chair – Victory!!!

I split one of the support legs on the base of my office chair a couple of days ago and have been trying to use it whilst holding off a virtual sense of seasickness. Alas to say it’s not been an overwhelming success and my poor old back has been feeling the strain. Enough I said…I have an idea…k’PING!

Well today I dug out the old chair from the loft which incidentally is fine but requires a new gas cylinder, unless of course you have an extremely low desk which would make it perfectly functional. I don’t as my desk is slightly higher than average so need every cubic gram of gas to elevate me to the right height.

I popped the old base off the gas lift thingy, with I might add a little bit of persuasion from some 3 in 1 oil and a hammer, off it came and on went the old from me other chair. Sorted!!

I don’t feel like I’m on a boat anymore.. cool!! 

Development can continue.
