Hello from NL

Post by -B- »

Hi All,
I am British but living in the Netherlands for now, and I have just bought an MTX512 (4000-05 512/15986).
Retro computing is a hobby but I am not a gamer. I am much more interested in the hardware. My background is in electronics and soldering so I am not averse to repairing and building projects.
I have joined this forum to learn as much as I can about this computer. Some of you may know me from other forums once I upload my usual avatar. I see a few user names here that I know already.

So, I will have a good read and get back to you with questions.

Neil.

Hi Neil,

Welcome to the Forum!

You've come to the right place for all things MTX. Quite a number of the users here are more focused on the hardware than playing games, so you're in good company

regards
Dave

Oof - the avatar criteria are a bit on the small side. 6k and 90x90 pixels doesn't give you much to play with, unless you have an 8-bit style picture like the gallery examples. Had to reduce my photo to fit 90x90, then save as monochrome PNG to get under 6k.

Anyway, some of you may still recognise it from other forums.

Oh wait, I made the background one solid colour and that meant I could save a colour image under 6k. Sorted.

Hi Neil,

Welcome to you. I hope you enjoy your new MTX.

Haven't seen Metal Mickey since the 80s, but I doubt he has aged as well as the MTX! :D

Hello Neil and welcome :D

Yes, I do recall seeing your Metal Micky avatar on an other 8 bit computer forum 8-)

Please do enjoy looking around the forum. Poke us if you need help with anything :D

It’s not given away much when we do play a competitive game :lol:
