Re: Spectrum memes

I never had the pleasure. What was the expectation? Despite the fact it was a BASIC type in, I would probably still have been naive enough to expect it to be like Manic Miner. That’s exactly what my expectation was. As a somewhat simple 11 year old I failed to realise that a couple of pages of BASI...

Re: Wanted: tape deck part for +2

there are quite a few grey +2 'Spares or Repairs' on eBay for about £10. I realise £10 is bit much for a single plastic cog, but, it's always worth having a +2 lying about for other spares.

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with W: tiebreaker vote

If my mate mate had MireMare then he’s clearly from a rich family and a spoiled little turd. As this is the case i’ll just steal MireMare from him whilst he’s making me a somewhat flat, E number filled drink from his SodaStream. When his folks find him crying they’ll just buy him another copy of Mir...

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with W: tiebreaker vote

How about this:

10 LET wotef=0: LET wtss=0
20 LET coin=INT (RND*2)
30 IF coin=0 THEN LET wotef=wotef+1
40 IF coin=1 THEN LET wtss=wtss+1
50 PRINT wotef;",";wtss,
60 IF wtss<>0 THEN PRINT wotef/wtss;
70 PRINT: GO TO 20

Handheld Spectrum Next!!!!

I was watching some Spectrum Next vids on the YouTubes and came across this site:
