for me my first was a BBC Micro and I still have it and use it. Also had a Spectrum and Spectrum+ later. Amazing that
someone here had a Coleco ADAM. Would love to know if it had all the legendary problems it was reported to
have had ?

Teletext emulator WOW, sounds like you were quite the Whizz kid
Charles. That sounds extremely interesting have you seen what the guys who created TEEFAX have done recently and their Vbit2 software on the
Pi. it sounds like you were decades ahead of them if I understand you correctly. What they have now used the Pi to get some use out of the
old Teletext adaptors that are around. Often they come up on Ebay. Vbit is I think the only way to get much fun out of them these days. I am typing this from my BBC Master, I also have my original ModelB. I am using a RPi with TCPSER as a wimodem to log on. I am trying to get a viewdata BBS built myselF but finding any working BBS software for the Beeb is proving impossible. Some programs exist they just dont work
with Hayes modems. A former purveyor of BBS software is trying to get
me something though so I am hopeful I will have a small night time dial up Viewdata BBS available in 2023. Hopefully you can visit.
