I was about 10 or 11 when my Dad brought home this amazing new thing called a computer. It used a cassette recorder to save and load programs, and it plugged into the television. It had a BASIC language interpreter built in. It was awesome.
It is no exaggeration to say that the BBC B was the launching pad that ultimately led me to a career in IT Support, meeting my American wife on the internet, and emigrating to the United States where I continue to work in IT and with my wife, raise our family.
Amazingly, you can actually try out the original BBC B using an online emulator.
I spent hundreds of hours using the BBC B, Much of that time was heavily invested in the best computer game I have ever played, Elite.
On the subject of games for the BBC B - check out the utterly brilliant Complete BBC Micro Games Archive!
Instantly recognizable by fans, the massive universe of Elite for the BBC B Microcomputer.
Back when buying a game was a trip to the store and something tangible for your money, Elite came with a novelette!
I never did establish the origin for this logo. I think it's now lost in time, possibly something to do with Acorn.
