    This is an amazing set for an amazing show. I can hardly wait for the new season. I still have a lot of vintage hardware some very old and some only 12 years old or so.

    I still have my first laptop (Giant Brick of a machine) and it still works.

    Awesome, I love old hardware. I used to have a Mac Plus in a prominent place in my studio, while my ‘real’ Mac was hidden–people would do a double take, and say ‘you work on THAT?’

    SERIES 4, not “season 4,” you provincial bastids!

      Yeah, here in the U.S. we have “seasons” while the entire run is known as a “series.” So while Star Trek: TNG may have run for 7 seasons, it was one series.

      Contrast that with Red Dwarf where there are 10 series of 6 episodes…what’s up with a series only having 6 episodes, anyway?

    They could have had my complete Acorn Atom with 12k RAM and floating point ROM and Ross Software Utility ROM…..

    OMG, I just realised I’m a geek.

    In a side note, I paid a visit to CCH’s website, where there was a newspaper cutting about CCH’s involvement with Micro Men (http://www.computinghistory.org.uk/userdata/files/ch_h_weekly_news_09-10-2009.pdf). Jo Deeks, the journalist for the Haverhill Weekly News, makes a reference to the Sinclair C5 as a *computer*. What an imbecile.

    No Amigas? Considering this is a British show, the guys must have had Amigas growing up.

    Yay! This is happy news.

    I can’t really joke about the old computer gear though… I have three working commodore 64s :/

    I remember hours spent typing in programs from magazines.. and I’m happy those days are gone.
