This page started off as my homage to the humble Sinclair Spectrum, a computer that inspired a generation of programmers, and launched a thousand careers. It is a computer born of the 80s, which lives on in the hearts and minds of hundreds of enthusiasts today,  with emulators aplenty running on systems as diverse as mobile phones and PCs, and new hardware being built using current technology and *that* rubber keyboard.

Lately it has expanded to include other retro computers of the era, such as the ZX81.

You can find out more about me here, and about basic & assembly language programming on this site, with examples of code that I wrote in my capacity as a commercial games designer *back in the day*.

Finally, I hope you enjoy this blog, and come away with a little of the enthusiasm I have for retro computers.
