It's odd, but there is a sort of Chuntey Field Disruptor these days that the people of 30-something years ago could never have imagined would become so common.

128K Spectrum wrote:*Nine minutes of loading noises*
Scumbag mobile phone wrote:I know, I think I'll just update something completely irrelevant and check that there still hasn't been a message sent to this number for three weeks. Dit-de-dit dit-de-dit dit-de-dit...
128K Spectrum wrote:R Tape loading error, 0:1

And it gets worse. Scumbag Mobile Phone can even choose to dit-de-dit all over the data when it's being recorded, such as when it's coming out of a WAV and onto a tape. That's why I keep it switched off!

You can get the same chuntey disruption if you attempt to load a game at midnight GMT - and happen to have an old Kindle too near your Speccy :O
