      wow is that an a keyboard in an oak case (make not wood) and that wonderous word processor word+ a true revelation in its day. I am sure I still have a set of ROMs in my office somewhere

      Its gold plated and was won as part of a competition with Micro User magazine.

      I remember the competition on the front of The Micro User in question (which I think I still have in loft). Amazing to see it's still around - do you own it?

      It was donated to the Science Museum's computing collections for which I am the curator. If you do have a copy of the Micro User mag in your loft would you be interested in donating it to the museum's collections? It would add to the story for the machine very nicely... : ) I think there was also a follow up the next month on how the machine was made.

      I was wondering where that got to, i helped make it - it was an interesting day, when we started unpacking it. trying to keep the fingerprints off, and watching we didn't scratch it.

      Are you still looking for copies of the Micro User magazines with details of the Gold BBC Micro competition and the follow up about how they made it? I have both if you want them. Please contact me if you're interested.
