He was into tech and I got his hand-me-downs, simple as that. He got a new QL, so I got his ZX81 in about 1984/5. I had no way of saving or loading anything at the time so every session consisted of me typing out a basic program, trying it, making silly changes, then turning it off to be lost forever.
My stepdad nicked my ZX81 and some speccies at some stage, but just recently I now find myself with several Sinclair products including about 8 ZX81's, mostly in various stages of disrepair, a couple of QL's and some other 'foreign' i.e non Sinclair stuff. I'll be thinning down and have been attempting some minor repairs and upgrades like Video mods and simple stuff including making whole computers out of various parts that I got in a job lot. I do have a question regarding one problem ZX81 at the moment and will ask that in the appropriate place.
