Jan 9th - Greg & medium sized van
Jan 10th - Greg & van (depending on my church duties)

Sunday 10th is definitely ruled out - sorry.

I'll make most of being there on Saturday 9th by bringing my medium sized 3.5 ton curtain sided van. Will be perfect for shunting a huge amount of stuff.

Linda, Andy, do you have a 16k Spectrum in good condition? I'd also like Jet Pac too. Happy to discuss a price with you.

Merry Christmas to you all.

Greg

Unfortunately Greg we don't at the moment.
Linda

No worries. Thank you.

Oh I say. That is beautiful. I presume it can be set to freeplay?

Will the X-box One is needed to be connect to play the games when it is retro?
That is my concern too. Piles of unplayable tech when it becomes retro. Like downloaded apps from clouds etc - where's the hard copy??? Where's the servers to activate the software???

I'm so glad that I'm into retro gaming. No corporate controlled and owned DRM servers are required to enable my carts and tapes to work. Long live retro.

That would be awesome! Especially if the device could internally mount.

Noone need know that you had a COMPLETE catalogue of software onboard!!!!

300 baud to 30,000 baud (that's a guess!) - wow!!!

FOR SALE / WANTED / Re: Jupiter Ace on Ebay - JUST SOLD . . .

Yes I know this ebay item is for a ZX80 rather than a Jupiter Ace, but it's a VERY good example of a thorough and honest seller:

The Colour Genie was my second computer...

Wow! A Colour Genie. I remember "testing" one thoroughly over several weekends (before eventually getting an Electron) back in late 1983.

I remember VERY well playing Donkey Kong and PacMan on it. Funny things I recall, the sprite for the pacman was HUGE!

A nice machine that deserved to be more successful than it was.

If(!) I was lucky enough to have a Jupiter Ace and if(!!!) I was desperate enough to sell it, I would go to the "trouble" of setting it up and photographing it WORKING. It's not hard really, is it?

The price would have doubled make no mistake...

Thus, I don't think it's a working example either!

Good luck with the keyboard issue. I believe the invaders occupies 3k, so you may just do it! However, would the poke addressing need to be moved to read the ROM addresses?

I was gobsmacked too - What an awesome achievement for such a "limited" computer. Ingenious programmimg; machine code embedded into PRINT statements!!!!!

I'm really interested in building one. My twin in Buxton runs his own electronics company and I'm hoping he'll offer to help :)

Slightly related note, I know he's designed a ZX81 add-on that outputs pure RGB with ANY two selectable colours. It connects to the ZX81 before the modulator stage. That would be a fantastic upgrade for a self-build ZX80 don't you think?
