French Spectrum Powa :)

Post by Zgoubi » Fri Feb 01, 2019 11:39 am


My name is Mat, and I'm 46, IT manager, I'm french, living in southern France.
I have no Spectrum Experience. During my 8bits life, I grew up Commodore 64, my friends had Amstrad, Hector ...

A real Commodore fan, I think Sinclair's computers are a real pillar of the 8 bits era, like Commodore and Amstrad, even if I haven't met any in the 80s. I'm not a huge collector, but I wanted a (or even a few) Spectrum to be part of my collection. My hobby is to fix and raise old computers from dead, and play a few games, but I have to admit that what I like most is to watch these computers, with some kind of satisfaction and admiration.

Then I bought a ZX Spectrum 48k, it still has trouble but I'm fixing it, still a few problems but I'm progressing. And then I've recently bought a ZX Spectrum 128K (grey) in a really GREAT condition, the french version (everything is labelled in french on the ports). I have little troubles with it and it's part of my presence here (to have a reference site where I can get help to put these Sinclair computers back on tracks).

That's all for now :) Have a good day !
