Hi folks,

it’s a bit silent here nowadays…

I hope you are all well if not great and enjoy the pre-Christmas time. Here in snowy Switzerland (see PIC in link below) days are perfect for some QL tinkering.

Some days ago I stumbled over this web-articles on “The Thorn EMI Liberator: the first British laptop”:
http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/11/12/the_secret_history_of_liberator_the_first_british_laptop_part_one/

It’s an interesting read, Dragon and Sinclair computers as the QL and Spectrum got a mention, keep in mind that the UK made QL’s and part of the Spectrum pile was produced at Thorn (EMI) Datatech in Feltham and that Sinclair’s last computer - the 1987 Cambridge Computers Z88 - has many similarities to the Liberator.

Have a great holiday season.

Cheers, Urs
