True, but it looks brilliant! I wish I had something like that back in the days! :grin:


Have a dozen or so Spectrum games programming booklets (can list booklet titles if interested), all different but of that era and might interest rebuilders or demonstrate algorithm principles for a youngster. Can deliver local area (West - Mid Wales, otherwise postage as appropriate.
