I just had to go and pick it up. Well I too so long to go pick it up, the guys wife threw it all in the trash.

I still cry a little bit when I tell that tale.
I cringe when I think of the old computers and handhelds that have passed through my hands, and I let go of. My Beeb always had a B&W CCTV monitor attached to it. I got given a Model B (Mine's an upgraded Model A, which My Dad and I upgraded, hence the attachment), twin externally powered Opus 40/80 track drives, and a Microvitec Cub Monitor.

I sold it on for £40. the reason I didn't keep the monitor? the base colours the Beeb produced were horrible and everything looked better in Monochrome! I did keep the drives through.

The guy who bought it off me eventually gave it away.
