Hey are you sure those dates are right, I thought I had my A3000 when I started GCSEs, and it was practically new then, and the RPC600 was nowhere to be seen, I'm 26 now, so that's what '93, oh that's right I guess. I must have got the SA-RiscPC for 6th form, in about '96, it was one of the first Mk3 boards with SA202K and 3.70, got my Clan discount, wow so that's 8 years old then!

I then got a 233T/4.02 in 2000 I guess, that was a Castle machine, not a J233, I'd just left CJE Micro's but still got my staff discount! ;)

Both of them are still going strong (one of them has a tendancy to eat HD's) after many hardware/OS upgrades and overclocking abuse, in fact I cherished the *two slice* 202 so much, that I brought it with me to California on the plane as hand luggage 3 years ago (whilst the PC's got destoyed in the mail thanks to UPS).

    Having previously built desktop and laptop cases of out Lego bricks, model building Peter Howkins has turned his attentions towards crafting a slim box to slid his A7000 into a rack, alongside other rackmount servers. Having pieced together the housing, Peter puts a legacy RISC OS machine through its paces as an internet-facing server.
