Serious use of the Z88 - what can you actually achieve?

Hello all. I've had my Z88 for a couple of years now, and there's much to love about it. It's a fantastic piece of design and there's much about the OS and software that's really nifty. Pipedream is a very versatile and flexible piece of software, and I've enjoyed using it. I can print nice document...

ZX81 and Sinclair pocket TVs

Does the ZX81 work with one of Sinclair's 1980s pocket TVs? I'm thinking about the flat one, rather than the earlier Microvisions. I know you'd probably need some sort of adaptor to plug the ZX81 into it, although I'm pretty certain they did have external aerial sockets. If it does work, is the outp...

Re: ZX81 floppy disk systems

Here in the UK there were occasionally adverts for various disk systems for the ZX81, but I'm not entirely sure how many of them actually saw the light of day. Clive Sinclair took a dim view of people developing such hardcore hardware for the ZX81, and considered it somewhat overdoing things. There'...

Re: Word Processor/Text Editor?

Ooh, thank you for the pointer! I'd not heard of that before, it looks pretty cool. I'll give it a play once I've updated my ZXPand. This is something I've never done in the long time I've owned it, it's still on version 1.3. Appreciate the welcome. I tend to use my Spectrum rather more than my ZX81...

Re: Word Processor/Text Editor?

Oddly enough, I stumbled across this thread after playing around with Tasword on my ZX81 last night. I actually got the Zeddy out for some 3D Monster Maze, but after I'd been eaten a few times, I had a look through the memory card on my ZXPand to see what else I'd put on it. I fired up Tasword, was ...
