BBC Key Pins
Keytops from my spare-parts BBC B. Now lapel pins. My only concern is that people will be inclined to push them while I’m wearing them thus impaling me on the metal part. Even with the back on they’re quite sharp.

Ten Years Online Today!
Ten years ago today I received my first e-mail. This is a photo of my setup at the time. I bought the 33.6k modem with money from my first job and signed up to Argonet using a voucher in Acorn User. The modem was £94 and it cost £10 per month not including the phone call costs! I used to look forward to weekends because the calls were cheaper then so I could spend more time online. Wasted teenage years? Just think, I could have been drinking cheap cider in the park. Needless to say, my third e-mail was spam. Some things don’t change.

This was my first computer. It was in constant use from 1986 until 1994. I learned to program on it.
