My ZXPand+ is here and I can't tell you how good it feels to be my childhood self again :D

Absolutely LOVE IT thanks Sir Morris and Rich between the ZX81 and a glass of wine I see how little it takes to be in such a happy place :D :D

So the initial shipment of boards was delivered to the post office on Saturday afternoon. Which means, due to the bank holiday here today, that they will be entering the postal system on Tuesday morning. I'll be interested to see if they make it to the UK based early adopters on Wednesday. Here's hoping :D
Mine's here! Just working out what to do with it... Will there be an updated manual?

Thanks Charlie! :)

I'm afraid I'm a bit slow in updating a manual - Most of the existing manual still applies though ;)

Apart from the DELETE command which has been replaced by a new command 'ZXPAND'. It was a bit of a waste having a dedicated command to delete a file so I have made a one-command-fits all solution.

ZXPAND "DELETE [FILENAME]"
ZXPAND "RENAME [FILE1] [FILE2]"

It has some more tricks up its sleeve too, but these will have to wait a bit :D

Don't drink and program ;)
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But, in practice, there is.

No Alkohol at the keyboard for me.
And my excuse is: single malt is much cheaper in Germany than in the U.K. :mrgreen:

I am so envious, Sweden has not been graced by a delivery yet.
