Re: New "special" issue of CRASH (with tribute to Jonathan Smith)

Cheers guys! EDIT: I've added an alternative download source for the PDF file, get it from here: https://easyupload.io/g4mbbs This one will expire after 30 days, which is at the end of July. By the way, the first download site ... I have no idea if it's dodgy or not, I managed to download from there...

Re: Is there an archive of Speccy title screen music?

If you fall asleep in front of your computer and that screensaver with music kicks in, let's hope it won't display Prodigy by Electric Dreams ...

Re: Blankety Blank - A Spectrum prize

Heh, that's very authentic. Since I've never heard of the show, at first I thought the photo in your phost was made by yourself (made to look like its from the 80s).

I guess young Nicholas Lyndhurst won the CPC he later used in one of the OFAH episodes ;)

Re: Retro Magazine World - Free Magazine English & Italian

Thanks for the link, I downloaded the English version (good decision of the makers to go international!) and it looks interesting, it doesn't always have to be about Sinclair/Speccy. You know, here in Germany people are actually complaining about the German version of Retro Gamer referencing the Spe...

Re: New "special" issue of CRASH (with tribute to Jonathan Smith)

Cheers guys. At least there are some replies. The same thread on WOS did get nil! :cry: Well Juan , I guess you were very drunk when you wrote that letter, I can't think of any other reason why you'd have forgotten about it. I feel sorry for you having to pay so much money for an issue ;) MatGubbins...

Re: Remembering Jonathan Smith

I don't know if many people have seen it (the thread has been accessed nearly a 100 times, but only 2 comments so far), but there's an interview of sorts with Joffa in the new Crash issue in my other topic. Feedback is very welcome, so even if you didn't enjoy it let me know ;)

New "special" issue of CRASH (with tribute to Jonathan Smith)

Hi everyone, so it's not really an issue of CRASH and also lacking a bit as far as page numbers are concerned. This is just me having a bit of fun, and also serves as a tribute to Jonathan Smith who died on June 26th, 2010. https://i.imgur.com/un7SX1w.jpg How to read this: You may download a 14 mega...

Re: Name the tune!?

It is from the 1st stage of Combat School 128k by Ocean (not sure if the tune plays in later stages too, could be).

Re: Friday quiz!

LOL, 30 year wait ... I won't come (tied) first again for a long time, I had this week off so I actually sat on my computer on a Friday morning. Won't happen again so soon as I'm never home before 4pm on that day.

But it was a fun quiz, thanks for doing these!

Remembering Jonathan Smith

Well, it's been exactly 10 years now that Jonathan Smith died and I assume he was an inspiration for many of us, so I'd like to post this topic as a kind of commemoration (or w/e is the proper term in English). He used to be quite active in the WoS forums back in the day and I'm sure there are plent...
