Sunny Delight is awful! It's like the cheapest orange flavour ice lollies you can get, melted. :P

Amstrad. Greenscreen and all. Only able to do writing and such on it, but I thought it was wonderful - you could change the size of the letters AND the way they looked! Wonderful! :lol:

My Amstrad had a colour monitor and a speech synthesizer. We had great fun trying to make it swear. :lol:

Well, I did get mine almost 20 years ago... and I wouldn't have though of using swear words, even if the machine had had a voice... I was a christian still, way back then... I didn't even have internet... come to think of it, I don't think I'd even heard of internet. :shock:

I had a Macintosh 128K. I think it is still in my parents loft. There is something about it which cheers me up. Like a brick.

It's weird how some topics can become related!

BTW Thanks Tony!

I still don't know much about forums and stuff, but is it common for threads to wander off and on topic on other forums? :)
Image I don't know if this counts, but my dad bought the family an Odyssey 400 (at least I think that was the model; it played 'Pong' with a choice of variants and had a digital on-screen scoreboard) back in the 1970's. We thought it the height of home entertainment at the time. :lol:

Not only is it common on forums for the topic to wander off topic - but it happens in verbal conversations between friends as well. :wink:
