Full House (in more ways than one)

Post by martinw »

Hi,

Martin from Aberdeenshire here, I’ve had a Spectrum for a while, bit the bullet on the ZX80 (most I’ve spent on a vintage computer) and a ZX81 is on its way. Got quite a collection, thought it was missing some Sinclair stuff (and they’re small (running out of room :lol: ). didn’t realise quite how small). I was talked out of buying a ZX81 in Leeds by the sales guy back in the day, 1983 I think. I ended up with a BBC model B. Cut my teeth on that and am now an electronic engineer. ZX81 piqued my interest though (my maths teacher at school (Heckmondwike Grammar) had one). Pleased to be on the Forum, thank you for the add.

Martin

PS got a couple of Sinclair calculators too 😊

Step up to red alert. Sir, are you absolutely sure? It does mean changing the bulb :!:
