    Greetings..

    I'm Andi, 39 from West Yorkshire, UK. I have a reasonable collection of machines and consoles, most of which I've had since new. Finally got myself an AES which has been on the list for many years. The time was right and finally made the purchase.
    I've been a NG fan for many years.. as a kid, a friend had a AES and I was hooked.
    Other consoles I like which I own are the Dreamcast and Pc-Engine Duo-R and GT. These get regular use along with the Amiga 1200 I've had since new.
    Most of my stuff is upgraded or modded in some way to improve it, all done myself. I'm not afraid of a soldering iron and getting stuck in.
    I hope i dont piss anyone off asking questions but I do my research as best I can before asking n00b questions.
    Thanks for reading and I'm sure I'll get grilled soon enough..

    Cheers

    Andi

    you're off to a good start

    What I don't get about your post yet: What's the difference between "machines" and "consoles" for you?

    Germans have a better understanding of the English language than the Brits.

    Oh, welcome bro!

    Welcome Andi. Started with the AES, huh? So did I. What games have you picked up so far that you like.

    A bunch of forty-something video-gaming nerds that are only keyboard commandos and mostly sedate pussies any other hour of the day cannot really be all that aggressive, can they? (My self included.)

    I love the lads here, this forum in general, and the mentality but lets not kid ourselves about this being some sort of dark web tough corner of the world.

    I'd say a console has no keyboard by default. So Amiga, Atari ST, speccy and C64 are machines.

    Welcome to the site from a Leeds lad. Here is evidence that consoles are, in fact, machines:

    Hi, I am new as well. I get the feeling there is a lot of ball busting here but as anyone from the east coast can attest to, ball busting is a term of endearment!
