Hello,

I'm Peter from the UK.

My Sinclair baptism started when my late father ordered a ZX81 in kit form, and we built it together in the kitchen (much to my mums annoyance!). We often built things together and I still remember us making a crystal set, and finding the only place we could get a good earth was via the radiator pipe in the downstairs toilet.

About a year after investing in a £49.99 16K RAM Pack, I eventually got a 48K Spectrum and my life was transformed. My magazine of choice was Your Computer, and I used to eagerly type in the listings, which would never work until two months later when the magazine published corrections.

After toying with an Oric 1, and various other disasters I got into the Amiga scene. After that I moved onto PCs and forgot about Retro until the late 1990s.

Over the years I've amassed quite a collection which now includes all the UK released SInclair models and official accessories from the ZX81 onward, as well as a ZX-Uno, and two Sony MSX HitBits.

After more attempts than I remember, I'm finally very slowly getting to grips with Machine Code. I'm currently building a very simple breakout clone. I would like to learn Z88dk if anyone knows of any good tutorials.

I'm also part of the small team responsible for the Spectrum Computing Website and forums.

When I'm not using computers, you will find me in the garden.

Hello Peter!

You are welcome here! It's a nice and warm place to stay a little... you know, with the eternal hellish flames and that three-headed puppy (it's very fun to see it catching the ball). :D
Jokes apart, I'm a bit curious. The scene is alive in UK, what has brought you here? ::? I'm sure you have some good reaon and I love to see people from other places of the world.

Regards!
