HELL! I thought I had the only Nascom 1 left! Now someone emulates it! 😉
I just have to ask why? You have to admit that, probably apart from NAS-PEN no-one ever really used the things. Apart from general “messing” that is…).
The reply got me thinking – you are reading the results!
I think it only fair to thank the following as, without them, this site would never have appeared or, at least, would be far smaller and much more boring! This list isn’t
complete (my emails have become very mangled with time and several
different email clients and ISPs) but, if you have contributed and your name isn’t listed then please don’t take it personally! The names are in no particular order, just the order that they came “out of the bag”!
Many of the following have sent me software, hardware, information or emails of encouragement.
