Re: Was Hannah Smith real?

I'm missing a 'who?' option in the poll... Me too :) But I can confirm that some "girls" in Speccy industry were not real. Check for example "Sonja Knight" ;) https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=999&label_id=13575 And yes, it also happened and still happens quite often in magazines that s...

Fantastic job pulling all those screens out PeteProdge. A real labour of love!
I thought R would be the peak, with 45 titles. Nope, this one was 78!

Next letter is going to be T. That's also gonna be chocka.

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with S: vote

When I was compiling the list and putting in all the url and img tags, Sim City really leapt out at me. I spent months playing that game in the twilight years of my Spectrum's life. Offered almost the same experience as the 16-bit versions. Absolutely immersive. I hit the submit button, I gave the l...

Incomplete list.
I think we're stuck with it—it's not possible for mods or users to edit polls.
Yeah, that's one of the failings of phpBB. I'd like to go back and add in Starstrike II.

Re: Whatever happened to... John Minson

I'd also like to point out I have met Lloyd Mangram. Well, actually one of the people who played him. Crash editor Eddie McKendrick went on to work in the New Media department of Nickelodeon UK in the mid-1990s, over in... Rathbone Place. (Yes, the building that once housed Your Sinclair.) Very surr...

Re: Whatever happened to... John Minson

But yeah, the careers of many Crash alumni are documented online but Minson? Minson seems right up/down there with Hannah Smith. I do wonder if Hannah Smith ever really existed or was just another Lloyd Mangram fabrication to make it look like Crash had a bigger workforce than it actually did (some...

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with S: discussion

Too many good 'S' games. This is going to be a difficult one when the poll goes up... :? It takes bloody ages to do all the img and url tags too, I can tell ya. The list will be so long that I think this time we might make an exception and avoid all the pics, just the poll list of games Naah, it's ...
