Hello from South Wales

Post by Richey » Mon Feb 06, 2017 7:03 pm

Hello everyone :)

I'm a long time lurker here, although some may have seen me occasionally on World of Spectrum.

I had a ZX Spectrum back in the day but I have since acquired another Spectrum, two Zeddy's and a BBC Micro. I'm also interested in the Jupiter Ace and Grundy Newbrain but they are rare and pricey and so I use emulation for those.

My main interest is in BASIC programming, primarily on the Spectrum and BBC Micro and also using SpecBAS and BBC BASIC for Windows on the PC, although I have more recently been trying to adapt programs for the ZX81; but I'm not very good at it and I don't get much time to practice and indulge my hobby due to work and family commitments :cry:

I also use EightyOne and SPUD.

Anyhow, glad to be part of this knowledgeable and welcoming community!

Maybe i'll go do that now.
