#6519

anyone have fond memories of

I sold my ZX80 to fund the purchase of a ZX81


#6520

Those were the days, although my first machine was a spectrum.


#6521

Fuck the 16K ram pack, still bitter after all these years


#6522

ZX80 then 81. And then one magical Christmas i had a 48k Speccy with Manic Miner (cassette obvs).


#6523

I’ve still got a boxed ZX81 in the attic.


#6524

I subsequently sold my ZX81 for a Spectrum 48k. I also had one of those thermal printers as well.


#6525

Meh.


#6526

Oh yeah, my first door wedge was a ZX81, happy days playing 3D MONSTER MAZE.


#6527

Missed all the Spectrum based stuff by being far too young.

First computer I remember was a 486 running 32MB of RAM if memory serves…

Many a happy hour spent typing out lines of code from computer magazines (and debugging or waiting for next months issue with the corrections).


#6533

I had one of those, I quite liked it, although the benefit of the spectrum was that there was so much content - mags and the like


#6534

Yep, the TI was “quirky” :slightly_smiling_face:
