The BBC Micro, the computer some of you may remember as the first you ever used, celebrates its 30th birthday tomorrow. The Register has a detailed overview of the machine, its birth at Acorn and its part of a UK Government drive to promote computer literacy. Definitely take a look at this. My primary school bought one of these at great expense when I was ten years old thanks to the enthusiam of Mr Griffiths, my phenomenally religious teacher. I learned how to move a sprite across a screen, but never worked out how to make it jump. Rubbish. Key games were Elite, et al. Windmills of my mind, and all that. Thanks, Blerk.
