    I thought a few may like to read this Article from Elektor Magazine.

    Didn't seem the right place for a Blog, covers all possible Resource interest doesn’t fit Media, and I can't create an Article !

    So this article must be from way back in 2005 since the articles states it's a 30th anniversary. A very interesting and enlightening read. Thanks.

    The only thing I didn't care for about the article was it was all about continued industrial use and emulators, and nothing or very, very little about people still using different 6502 based micros in everyday use and how incredible upgrades and software for the old home computers are still actively being made that the designer's would have never imagined. Of course, very little of that had been done by 2005, long before the real retro scene and people returning to them ever started in mass, though I was there doing that by 2000, with about a 4 year hiatus from it. The article needs an update for today, definitely.

    I hear you on that one, I suspect however that the target audience in Elektor wouldn’t care that much, nearly always following the latest new trends in electronics, I have an interest of course from what once was my professional work, and that became a hobby when I was promoted so to speak.
    I was actually a radio professional, before I became a licence Amateur Radio holder or a HAM as often known.
    I've also a collection of Elektors going back to the late 80's early 90's and still flick through them from time to time.

    Any ways I hope your keeping well, I guess the distributer must have arrived by now so at least some backup with I presume the truck up and running.
    Keep Well Matt.
