Excellent night tonight. On a sad note my temporary custodianship of the 2nd Commodore P500 has ended but hopefully it's off to be fixed. 
Still - start the year in the way I intend to go on! Machines added: boxed EACA Color Genie, boxed JVC HC-7GB MSX machine, strange long Memotech MTX512 (3 1/2 inches longer), another Dragon 32, another Toshiba HX10 (boxed starter kit but without the box!), Expert cart for the C64 and boxed C64 modem. 
Coming soon (ie once I've scanned it) - an advert from June 1980 for the Sinclair ZX80 *kit*, so it was only 3 or 4 months old :o)

Some web digging has found one of the founders of Memotech and the chief designer of the MTX machines, so hopefully he'll come back to me and help to explain the stretched MTX512. 
Also found another Mattel Aquarius and a Binatone TV Master MK10 Pong in a secondhand shop :)

Many pix of the new Memotech and the hoard from the 15th uploaded. 
Wallow in nostalgia with the ZX80 advert
Updated the Atari VCS pix 
Redone some of the Sinclair pages 
Put a 'last update' section on the Sinclair page so you can see what's changed more easily. Good to you, I am :) And yes, I *do* have better things to do!

Moved to a new server today so I'm now nestling alongside Kevan's Computer Collection thanks to the owner, Kevan Heydon. Cheers mate!

Excellent condition boxed Amiga 1200 put on Commodore page, or rather the *box* is. Machine's bust but it was cheap :) Came with the software pack and a new floppy drive. 
Also picked up a half boxed ZX81 with US RAM pack. Tad battered though!
