Default How the MK14 affected the Oric and the Dragon world

Those here will know how intertwined the people in the early British computer scene were like Acorn's link back to the Mk14 with Chris Curry setting up and Nick Toop providing the Eprom programmer to create the Acorn System 1 PROMs...

You may also remember the name Geoff Phillips who ran the MK14 user group and kindly uploaded what he had to archive.org:

Well today I came across Part 1 of a YouTube interview with him that mentions his MK14 time as part of how he became involved with Tangerine and the Oric among others...

Another great info find Tim, I had no idea about this connection.

I'm often surprised Geoff, with his past involvement with the MK14, never ended up finding his way here but I suppose running the MK14 user group for a couple of years would have been quite heavy going, enough for one lifetime perhaps.
