There might have been a bit of that...simplesi wrote:I think you mean envyI think those of us who built our Nascoms, UK101s, etc from kits of components looked down our noses just a little at those who bought their computers ready made!
I can't honestly claim to have built my mine. I bought the Nascom kit, but I was so busy getting myself a (somewhat belated) education, as well that working full time and doing a part-time job to keep hearth and home together, that it had to be put on the shelf until after that year's exams. My mate, who had built his own and really wanted someone to share stuff with, took mine away and built it for me. Thanks, George!
