Published: 22nd Mar 2009, 21:33:33 | Permalink | Printable

This month a number of Acorn enthusiasts exhibited their favourite 8-bit kit at Byte Back convention - a two-day UK show that featured all manner of electronic equipment from C64s to arcade cabs demonstrated by their adoring fans. Dave Moore, who was able to secure a few tables for Acorn hardware, organised a meet up for like-minded enthusiasts at the event and gave us this round-up of reports and photos from the show.

Dave added: "The Econet setup - which spread the entire length and breadth of the Executive Suite - had to be seen to be believed. There was also an A3010 there running a brand new 5-player arcade game called Bomber Blaster - no prizes for guessing which arcade game it was inspired by."
