A very interesting read. Uto is excellent. He wrote a very good guide for the ZX-Uno I remember that pulled together all the bits of information elsewhere and made sense of it all.

I see he references the Alan Sugar autobiography. Has anyone read it. Is it worth picking up a copy?

+1 to that. He is has done some amazing work in the text adventure scene. The Spanish guys have their own thing going on over there in that department. (And also a lot of other departments too!)

A very good read. Thanks for the link.

Even though I had read something about it, I didn't know such a detailed story.

Great article, thanks for the link. Just when I think we know everything about the technology of the time (I'm a synth head too, so the 80's were legendary in that respect as well), some completely fresh, unheard of info comes out of the woodwork. Love it. Looks like my older years are going to be one big nostalgia trip. :D
