Hi from Brisbane.

Post by Nev » Fri Mar 08, 2019 10:18 am

HI everyone, it's great to see a ZX community still exists when I thought these things went the way of the DoDo. I learned to program on a ZX81, originally with just 1k which taught me how to write code very efficiently. I had a huge library of games of which my fave was Mazogs. I went to school in Melbourne and remember a Sinclair computer specialist store nearby in South Yarra what would stock the latest expensive games. My friends and I would chip in a few bucks each to buy them and make copies for each other. The ZX81 was retired when I moved to a C64. Anyway I've just bought a working ZX81 and look forward to seeing what I can do with it now.

Hi! You might like playing the Zeddy version of a very famous local game about crossing roads... ;)

There's quite few of us still working on ZX81 games so you'll find there's quite a lot you can do with them now.

I'm from New Zealand myself, so same global area.
