New MTX user from Germany

Post by schombi » 09 Jan 2014 08:55

Hello everybody,

just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Stefan, I´m 41 and I´m from South-West Germany. In most forums I can be found under my nick name "Schombi".

I started my computer career back in 1983/84 with a 16K Sinclair ZX Spectrum. I had the 48K version later, followed by C64 and Amiga 500, before the PCs took over (what a shame!). However, I never really stopped thinking about home computers; at least I was using emulators quite often.

Almost two years ago, I realized that it´s now time for a change and going back to real hardware would the be only way, so I started collecting, repairing and using old computers. I started with Sinclair (which was my first love), but I discovered that there a more gems from the isle. I´m pretty pround of my three SAM Coupes, but I was always impressed by the solid appearance of the MTX and its specification, so I kept my eyes open.

Yesterday I received my MTX512 and it seems to be working rudimentary :)

EDIT: Confirmed to be an MTX512 with 64KB of RAM. Board issue -05. Serial 16849

You could call me a collector, but I don´t keep the machines on the shelf, I really use them to play or program and also to check additional hardware and new developments from other people, such as the IF1bis on the Spectrum.

Guess I will have many more questions on the MTX.

Feel free to visit my family on: http://schombi.de/my-retro-collection.html


Best regards,
Stefan

Hi Stefan,

Welcome to the Forum!

It's good that you are actually making use of this retro hardware, I'm sure that you will have fun "playing" with the Memotech too.

I see that you've already been tipped off about REMEMOrizer in the Facebook Group

- you definately NEED one - go get it now :-)

regards
Dave
