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 !
I know you will get all the help from the guys on this very friendly Zeddy Forum ask any question and someone on here will be only too glad to give you all the help you need to fix it.
