“ My Dad happened to be old friends of the guy importing Oric to Australia, so we bought one of the very first that arrived on that hot continent. I spent 1984 - 1989 getting together as much software as I could for my Oric-1, before moving on to other machines (Unix workstations .. MIPS, etc.)
It was the machine I cut my teeth on.

Now I have two young kids, and I want them to know something about their Dad, eventually: he didn't ever believe that 'old computers die', just .. their users do. So, I've been slowly rebuilding my Oric-1 accessories, library, etc. Well, I've gone beyond the limits of good taste actually, with now a Telestrat, 7 Atmos's, 2 Oric-1's and various other sundry hardware (disk drive!) in my collection. ”

  A gift from the CEO Mag
Sun 10th March 2013

To celebrate 30 years of Oricing, the CEO has given us three free issues of the magazine.

The three issues are representative of the passing of time:
  • The issue 13 was published in may 1991, and represents the very beginnings of the magazine
  • The issue 153, celebrating the Oric 20th birthday
  • And finally the very recent issue 273, celebrating with us the 30th Oric birthday
You can download these three issues of the CEO Mag in the Oric Library.

Buggy Boy Demo

2004 - Mickaël Pointier


“Nice design, nice demo, nice music.”
Jede

“Absolutely fantastic!!!! Defence Force - you just blow me away. With each demo/intro you stretch the boundaries in showing what an Oric can really do. My favourite section is the one with the scrolling horizontal lines going up, with the scrolling text going right to left (3rd across and 3rd down of the pics above.) The sound effects were very clever for the test card starting and ending, as the loading music was excellent.”
