I lived in Elgin during the 80s and went to the computer club at RAF Kinloss. The commodore 64 boys were always waiting to pounce on my 800XL if I wasn't near it, always wanted to play International Karate, they seemed to prefer the 800XL to their '64.
I know Fraserburgh and Peterhead as the rest of my family live in Peterhead, so you are not to far from there.
I know Elgin well! Used to go shopping there with my folks and clubbing there with my mates! Remember downtown club next to cinema? So many humans packed into a square room it was more like a stampede at Ramadan when happy hour started lol, great great times. I wish I had known about you at the time as I thought there probably wasn't any other Atari fellas around - I was wrong obviously. I knew a lass (friend of my first wife) from the housing estate next to the RAF base, mackayla fairbrother, her partner worked at the base but we never met him.
