In this forum you can write about anything that does not fit in other forums.
This includes generic Oric talkings and things that are totaly unrelated but want to share with people here :)

Just received my Atmos this last week and had a chance to do my 1st unbox and test video this week. Hope you enjoy... :D

Must say she is a gorgeous computer.

Nice! Welcome to the club! Persistence pays off, eh?

Now get some Pulsoids, SPACE1999, Defence Force, Krillys and Scuba Dive on that thing .. ;)

Have fun :)

If you liked Buggy Boy, you can also check other demos, like all the ones on http://www.defence-force.org/index.php? ... barbitoric (except the ones with the /|\ logo, which only run on Atari ST)

Technically, there's been Orics in USA before, if only because I sent one to a friend (in Arkansas) around 1998

Oh, I didn't realise who you were! I watched your first QL power-on video the other day, in which the lack of a power switch caused you to miss the key moment.

I'm at work now so can't watch the Oric video, but my favourite is Don't Press the Letter Q.

The instructions in the box are very informative, I started with him in English, but the book "L ORIC A NU" explores the whole machine. :wink:
