Took me quite a while to save-up for the enormous 16kb memory upgrade ...

Punch hole Terminal at school (I've got an unclassified CSE in Computer Studies) connecting to "The" Post Office Computer, ZX80, then ZX81 with 16Kb upgrade (both stuck on a board to prevent it moving). (Upgrade taller and narrower than the image above.) The Sinclairs were such a frustration but I didn't really think anything of it until I got a BBC B, which felt like a real computer. Cant really remember how much any of it cost except that the first floppy drive ((360kb, 5 and 1/4" ) for the BBC was £220.

After learning dbase II and Administrating them on IBM´s and ....... I was bored fast, and went Amiga for Video Editing 3D !!!!!!!

This Amigas where very innovative.

Then worked in a Professional Movie Company with SGI Indigo 2 and Onyx on full Movie 3D Post Special Effects.

After that I bought Macs for DTP ( QuarkExpress 1 Photoshop 1 Filemaker 1 .... ) and all the Other artificial things ;-)

Also convert Mac II si to Filemaker Server with a Serial to Telephone Cable Network for Central Databases in many Galleries.

This Filemaker Programming still runs Today.

Nice! Apricot is a name I've not heard in a long while. As it happens one of my relatives actually knew the original team members years ago who created these very machines. They had some amazing products, sad it was eventually sold off and disbanded.

Anyways this was my first computer (Sharp MZ-700).
