Disks arrived, safe and sound. Thanks Terry!
Inserted both disks, power up, SUCCESS!
Now to dig out my high school notes on creating directories, commands, line-by-line text files.... three guesses what I'm up to for the next long while.
The person who owns the computer and I are both primary school teachers. So no doubt this computer will end up being a useful teaching tool. Up until a year or two ago the most popular computers I had in my classroom were old Acorn machines from about 1993. The kids LOVED writing their stories on the old computers, using the calculator, dictionary and sometimes the occasional game. So easy and straightforward to use. The kids could not believe that the old Acorn machine was far faster (performance wise at least) than the brand new desktop machines across the room.
