The Machine Room is Back!
This is the recovered Machine Room from 2005. Please don't expect wonders. The look and feel of this site is nine years old, and so is its code. Some of the functionality has been recovered while the rest of the site is modernised and restructured. Watch this space!

An Oric Atmos as seen from above. The point of view fails to show the machine's nicely sloping keyboard, though you can easily see the cool strip of differently textured, reflective plastic and fake speaker holes (the holes were initially meant to be real, but the design couldn't be fabricated easily enough).
