Re: What happened to ZXAce?

So... a long while ago I bookmarked www.zxace.com, because it hosted PDFs of Sinclair User magazine -- and I was methodically working my way through those. I got to about issue 55 or 56, when the site/hosting seemed to die. www.zxace.com now resolves to a 404. So no more SU PDFs! Did I miss somethi...

Re: why sell a computer with only 1k of ram?

the TS1000 had only 1k of ram, up to 16k maximum and i can't figure out why they would sell such a misleading product for 100 dollars.

is there a way to record avi in Zxspin (i run a gaming channel called Speedruns for charity) so that i can post to youtube? :?: I've not tried it with ZX Spin but, if you use Windows 10, I'd imagine that operating system's built-in screen recorder will do the job. Initiate it by pressing Windows ke...
