Mostly an Iyonix with two screens. Also an A9home for IRC, some web browsing and testing code like NetSurf. Occasionally use a StrongARM RiscPC too, but only for testing code really.

And I use an XP laptop but that doesn't run RISC OS yet ;)

I did write a Mode 4 version of !Lander - trees, moving landscape (with water), spinning ship. Just was outline graphics rather than filled in.

Unfortunately, I lost the source (and the source to a lot of other code) when I left my bag on the train.

So it is more than a legend. Do you mind if I inform Stairway.. about this?

Potentially someone somewhere has it. Tragic! ;)

I didn't think I'd ever mentioned it to anyone! No, I don't mind.

And my Olivetti JP-101 printer. To me, the most important bit of code I lost was my disassembler - which was able to cope with self-modifying code (to a certain degree).
Anyway, shortly afterwards I got my A420/1...

The box I mainly use now is an Acer laptop running XP Home. VRPC is installed, but I don't use it yet as I've still to transfer everything over from...

The box to my right is a RPC600, all SA'd up and running Select 3.

(It wouldn't take long. I'm just lazy.)

In the loft is another RPC600 with an ARM610 and RO3.5, along with my old A3000 with RO3.1

On the window cill is an old Z88

Under the bed is an antique Toshiba laptop with a massive 80x4 line LCD display.

Somewhere burried under piles of stuff there is a Packard Bell laptop with WinXP (the predecessor to this Acer).

On the floor to my left, between a little 3 drawer unit and the legs to my desk, and which I can't be arsed to retrieve (I'll get it out when I next go off-roading) is a Mio168 PocketPC.

About 12 inches in front of the screen, roughly in line with the top, is the best computer I have. Unprecedented amounts of solid state storage - though sometimes the contents are a little hard to retrieve.

I have one of them, but it keeps crashing and needing a reboot.

Crikey. Can't imagine doing that myself... Must've been an interesting experience at busy times on the tube ;)

3.8GHz HT P4 with XP (piece of crap)
Kinetic RiscPC, Select 3i4
MSM7500 (400MHz ARM11, 200MHz ARM 9, ATI graphics; it's a phone prototype, but looks like a computer and I spend most of the day on it)

12 inches from the screen? Sit back guys, and give your eyes and squidy storage devices a break!
