ZX Spectrum 25 years!

I did not realize I was getting that old, but this news arcticle made me aware that the Sinclair ZX Spectrum is celebrating its 25th birthday this month!

Oh the nostalgia! This is the machine I started to learn computers on, programmed my first lines in BASIC on, spend countless hours waiting for the games to load from tape… great memories!

I still own a working (albeit not my original) ZX Spectrum, and of course emulators on my phone, PSP and PC.

So thanks Clive for starting the 8 bit revolution at prices everyone could afford!
