But wanting my own computer was something I mostly kept to myself as it wasn't as it is today that everyone uses a computer. Back then no-one could see any sense in it and even (especially) people working
in the computer industry thought I was bonkers (Julie says she still does!). The typical comment was 'what do you want a computer for'. They were of course still large, expensive and used, yes you've guessed
it for doing payroll calculations.
Then an advert in a magazine called 'Wireless World' changed everything, A guy called Mike Lord was asking if anyone was interested in forming an 'Amateur Computer Club'. So I wasn't the only barmy one,
was I interested, you bet I was. The design of my first computer the ULO510 was published in the first edition of the club magazine and I was off. If you would like to download a PDF copy of the ACCN very first
