Hi there , been keeping an eye on the forum but only got around to joining now.I'm based in Dublin , and I collect tabletops and a few other handhelds.
I've love VFDs especially , but I've a soft spot for the Tomytronic 3ds (some really impressive visuals , even today!) Actually the scanned thundering turbos manual on this very site is one I sent in back in 04!
Like a lot of you I also collect old home computers and consoles .

I've a Youtube channel where I look at old games/consoles/repairs etc

A lot of it is console/computer based but I've a few handheld reviews , like this one:

and I look at odd things like this boardgame /electronic game hybrid

I'm actually selling a bit of the collection to fund a new pc (the creaky one I have at the moment takes forooooevvvver to render anything , and with a wife and two small children the only way I can make the spare 'Daddys hobby" cash is either sell some handhelds , or sell a kidney .Believe me it was a tough decision!), I'll put up details over in the forsale forum later.
Anyway nice to meet you all:)

Hi.
Welcome!
Yes. The kids are expensive. I have 4 and money seems to be spent just as fast or faster than I make it!

Just sell their poop as bio fuel and move abroad when they start studying (free in some countries). That reduces the total cost of 100000 per child by half at least.

HI.
Good idea! My oldest boy is getting really big. His new nickname is BigBadJohn. This might make us rich! ...lol
