Hello,

I am new to vintage computers and only have a vic 20 and bbc micro in my collection. I was just wondering if anybody had any hints or tips for these two machines or just about vintage computers in general?

Thanks

Moe

Speaking for the VIC-20; a good place to start is with a copy of the VIC-20 Programmers Reference Guide.
Just Google around and you'll locate it.
Next, shop around (eBay, or yard sales), for a 3, 8, or 16k RAM expansion cartridge to give you some room to program in.
Also one of the VIC-20 emulators and software will go a long way to help you understand the machine better. Ref: WinVice is a good one. Also easily located with Google.
Enjoy :)

MOE251, I am a very big collector of Vic-20, Commodore 64 and Amiga stuff. If your looking for Vic-20 cartridges, I have several I am looking to sell if you are interrested. Let me know and I can put together a list.

My tip is only collect stuff you actually plan to really use.
