Re: Can you produce [X] in less than 15 seconds?

There are about fifteen Acorn computers in my other house (one in use, the rest in storage in the loft) that my dad bought from a school about twenty years ago. But no old computers here.

A compter that has Windows 8 installed on it?

About fifteen years ago my sister made a replica wooden Nimbus 2000. Sadly, I have no idea where it is now. So, no.

Yep. Two analog chess clocks, and two analog ordinary clocks on walls (one of which is currently not working). Also I think there's an analog alarm clock somewhere, but not sure I could find it in 15 seconds.
