Museum Monday #30

Monday. Monday morning actually, but still in the definite retro mood that has plagued me for the past 15 hours. A 6502 mood even, dangerously bordering on a full blown Acorn 8-bit lust. That's why this Museum Monday (number 30, no less) entry is all about the Acorn BBC models: the Electron, Master and Compact. And a bit on stuff like the Archimedes too. Anyway, just visit the brilliant and deviously-named The BBC Lives! website and find out about it yourselves. Mind you, you'll also find a large collection of scans, BBC related software and emulators, an impressive PDF (& html) e-book collection, tons of retro games, FAQs, pictures and more.
