    They were still producing games. Reminds me of my younger days.

    I'm a gamer and as a gamer we are a fussy breed and we get harder and harder to please, in fact i think consumers in general are harder than ever to please, we all want feature rich products for minimal outlay, having said that i am completely gob smacked at the sheer amount of casualties in these hard economic times, it seems to be the big ones that people thought could not be touched that are going. Its a serious indicator of how much **** we are in.

    Nor me.

    You'll be telling us next that Amstrad have stopped producing the PCW8256 and that Hungry Horace is no longer available for my ZX Spectrum.

    ...brings back memories...I first bought an Atari in the late 70's when a guy wrote me a program that ran on Atari.
    I was delighted but they were damned expensive in those days.
    The last one I bought was about 1990 and had a 35gb....you read that right Smile built in hard drive.
    ....cost me 1500 and a seperate 60gb HD cost me 600 I think.
    ....I suspect I had more money than sense in those days Smile

    Not sure I am reading it right Mike, I think your 35GB should read 35MB as that is more in line with the commercially available hard disks in 1990.

    Your first PC had a hard drive?

    Jeez, you must be really young.

    Mine had a single 5.25" floppy drive Ind I thought I was the bees' knees when I installed a second floppy drive so I could have my program software in one and my data disc in the other.

    I added a 3.5" fdd and then a 20MB HD in mine, couldn't run it too long with the hard drive though because it would overheat and crash.
