In my last 2 years of secondary school, the computer lab was all BBC based. The entire class shared a 360k floppy disk that was connected to a machine on a network. Fun times back in the late 80's.
Considering the previous school I was at up in a small country town had 2 Apple II's (in a room the size of a small broom cupboard), a computer lab was a dream come true. It was also the first (and last) time I used a BBC.
I like hearing about the early days of computing from a different perspective (and New Zealand is about as far away from me as you can get).
In that case, you might find this
an interesting site - its a university-related project to archive the history of Computer gaming in the 1980's in NZ and Australia.
Good to see more people on the forum.
