Erm... I thought you were a computer scientist? :D

You could follow the on screen instructions or if that overloads your overly educated brain cell... Follow my instructions that i managed to work out with my supreme intelligence.

Click on link.

Select a 'console' that you want to view.

List of games appear in blue... read and select one that you want to view/play.

Click on it.

A new screen opens with the screen on the right. Click on it.

Another screen opens. Read instructions and press the space bar to begin.

Put water into kettle and depress switch - allow to boil, place tea bag in cup and pour on boiling water from kettle. Add sugar and milk to taste and pour down throat accordingly.
*Caution - Tea is HOT*

Don't knock the BBC Computers of the Era. They were fucking amazing!! I saved up hard for an Acorn Electron, BBC Model B and Master 128!! Solid machines of their time :thumb:

Maybe.

Certainly a man like your good self must take the security aspect very seriously. God forbid that Russian hackers force their way into your machine and pinch your anti Zionist files or password for pornhub. :D
