Hi there,

I'm a member of the retrocomputing community in Spain, very usually-used to perform some activities since 2015, coordinate some events and support the organization team of one of our eldest events in Spain, RetroMadrid.

The first time I saw a MSX computer was thanks to a schoolmate, during the mid-eighties. It was a Sony HitBit HB-20P model and he used to play (and I could just say burn) a Konami's Penguin Adventure cartridge in every visit I made to his house. We also had a government program at the time that promoted Computing Learning with the lease of computing equipment (in our case, a classroom full of MSX1 Phillips VG-8020, each one with their own copy of MSX Logo).

So I had my time with The Expandable System(tm), but we never afforded to have one at our household. With the coming years, I achieved to acquire a MSX1 Sony HB-20P (during the late 90s), later on a MSX1 Phillips VG-8020 and a MSX Logo copy out of full nostalgia (mid 2000's) and finally a MSX2 Sanyo Wavy PCH-70FD (late 2010's).

For me is like the 'Cadillac' of the MSX2+ line, even though my experience and knowledge is pretty limited by so far. I hope I may get more acquainted with the system soon during the nex MSX Users Meeting to be held in Barcelona, very soon!! Big smile

Cheers to everyone, and many regards! Wink
