My computers

This is an overview over all the computers I own - I am not sure who could be interested in such a thing, but anyway...

Risc PC

My main computer, where all the work is done. The Gateway for the Internet. Both harddiscs and CD-ROMs get shared via Acorn Access+ to the other RISC OS computers and via Samba for the PC.

As you might have guessed from the amount of CD writers, it is also my main development machine for CDBurn.

Intel PC

Mainly used for networking experiments, but also for some things where software is missing on RISC OS and the PC card is too slow. Harddiscs are shared via Windows 95 or Samba under Linux.

Second Risc PC

Used as a testing platform for compatibility tests between various writer, SCSI podule and OS combinations.


My first Archimedes. A classical "keyboard computer", now housed in a big tower. Used as a test platform for the oldest CDBurn-supported operating system version and the slowest possible Acorn hardware.

Amstrad CPC

One of the most successful 8bit computers, made by Amstrad, sold by Schneider in Germany. This classic piece of hardware introduced me to the wonderful world of computers and programming.

Sony PlayStation

My "entertainment machine". Especially the rich selection of very good racing games and the idiot proof usage are the plus points - my Intel PC is surely much better suited for playing games hardware-wise, but I just refuse to hunt through the 'net for updates, patches, drivers etc...entertainment means relaxing, and the "throw CD in, press button and play" concept is unrivalled for that. And we await PSX 2 - bigger, better, faster, more ;-)

This is a list of the games I own - you might notice a slight bias towards racing games...
