Actually I think I recall my dad and brother playing around with something resembling a ZX81.
Do you remember any sound? if you do, it wasn't a ZX81
well, my younger brother also played a lot with the TK85 (the brazilian clone of ZX81). Too bad you were not given a chance...

Good point, RCK. I was wondering about that myself. Snooping at peeps' Profiles reveals a whole lot of N/A's!



Maybe half the membership are ethereal beings on a different plane of existence.

Those that don't put their ages in are too ashamed to admit they are really that old

BTW, I'm 24, I'm quasi-old

Hey, RCK, is there any chance of you doning something with the database to find out what the average age really is.

Yes, I know you very busy, maybe you could put it on your to-do list, right there under world domination, erm sorry, wrong forum

Don't remember sound. Remember game like thing, white screen with black either graphics or characters on.

the problem here is that some members use fake birthday, so stats will be wrong.

I'll be 19 next tuesday (April 23th ) .

I thought I was the younger guy here, good to know I am not

I am 19 years old , but I have like 30 years in gaming experience, and I can beat anyone, be in skill or knowledge (he he he)

23, I notice in the graph we can see a big
chunk of ppl within 20-30, defintely most ppl in this group "grew up" with the amiga!

I wonder if in 10years time if the majority of users here will be 30-40? That will be a bit of shame... not only would that mean that we would be 10 years older but the general amiga following would be getting older... time will tell!

You guys have probably heard me say this before, but anyway I'm 50 years old.

Believe me, you'll never outgrow this hobby...:bounce

I'm 20 so in the category you defined I'm just in. And I didn't grow up with the Amiga. I grew up with the C64. A couple of friends had an Amiga, but I wasn't the one growing up with it.

Damn - judging by some of the things I've read on the EAB, I was sure that you were all about 6 years old!

Ahhh. Cody, Cody, Cody .. there is a simple explanation to that, its all the nostalgia and memories that cause us to rewind into a mental state of a 6 year old... And dont we love it

Neither - I was too poor to own a speccy or C64

I actually owned a ZX80 first (which I still have) - but later "upgraded" to the ZX81 as I could add a 16Kb RAM pack.

Of course again later - I had to go back to the ZX80 because actually typing anything on the RAM pack enabled ZX81 crashed it. What a piece of crap that was (with the RAM pack & crashing)

Yes Yes ok.

I noticed the SMALL flaw in the poll after I'd posted it. As I said I nicked it from the Lemon64 site so it's really their flaw not mine. I should probably have checked it first. Anyway the last option should be read as 51 and over (obviously).

Bless you, RocketMack! I'm 46 myself, and was feeling really ancient when I answered the poll and found I was the only one (at the time) on this end of the spectrum. Now I no longer feel ancient - merely "chronologically gifted".
