Alan Sugar
« on: 01:26, 11 July 20 »
i was reading
retro gamer earlier .


alan sugar is setting up a storage unit for all the kit Amstrad has made .


i assume it will also have spectrums . they did buy sinclair, didn't they ?


he was bored during lockup i mean lockdown
 so this was his idea


id like it if
we could go along and have a good look
like an art museum exhibit


but the better idea
for me
would be
to have all the kit running and let people try it out


what is the point of just putting it in
display cases
with a tag telling you
when it came out?

When he was talking about this on Twitter, it sounded a lot like Lord Sugar was bored and wanted to get into collecting old Amstrad kit. When viewed from this point of view, storing everything in cases with labels makes a lot more sense.

I hate to ask what kind of “sock puppet show” you’re referring to. Hopefully it doesn’t result in a crispy sock that needs a special wash.

Yuck :) No, but this one's also fairly sad.
