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: Friday Night Quiz: Sports Round

If it's Daley Thompson's Decathlon I'm going to need both clues explaining :mrgreen: Both clues? Did I give two? (Bit drunk, so forgive me!) I remember this clue: 4. A cock and hen, perhaps - but not Arthur's. A cock and hen = Cockney rhyming slang = 10 = Decathlon. But not Arthur's? Not Arthur Dal...

It's a bit after the event, but I'm going to have to give up on 4. Any chance of another bloody big clue?
Gosh, I'd forgotten all about this - sorry. But happy to discuss further.

Re: Spectrum namedrops...

Sounds a bit daft but I've literally just remembered that one of my good mates in the late 80s/early 90s was Fred O'Rourke: https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=999.

They had all expressed disappointment with his actions following our help which - as we were told - was to help WoS, whereas it seemed afterwards the intentions were very different. And as s...

Re: World of Spectrum....

Just for clarity... I'm all for that. I think all of us here are, which is why we're here. So, just for clarity, why *exactly* - and with clarity - were mentions of Spectrum Computing and ZXDB banned from WoS? The reasons expressed at the time on WoS were neither exact nor clear. At least, not so I...
