I would like to thank everyone who has visited BeebMaster since the launch in May. Your support has taken me crashing through the 1,000 hits barrier today! Special thanks must be due to all those who have been kind enough to e-mail me with their experiences of the good old Beeb. If you've seen anything on my site you remember from years ago, don't be shy, please e-mail me with your reminiscences!

As a celebratory gesture for my first 1,000 hits, it's a big update today so please take a look at my new high-quality pictures of the American Econet Clock and Terminator, my Akhter Host Adapter board, and the beginning of my section on the Domesday Project.
