View Thread: My First Computer
  • User profile image

    I still have the 16k RAM pack but gave the ZX81 away a few years ago to a colleague who was mourning the loss of his own.

    Hee-hee, Ram Pack Wobble! - I remember that well and how it was solved by a strategically placed piece of Blu-tac!

    My first computer was a Sinclair ZX Spectrum, 48k model. Spent the whole summer learning ZX basic on that thing and wrote a few games, including a simple platformer that even had a level designer (but no ability to save levels). Not bad for a 48k of RAM and a novice programmer!
