I'd just like to introduce myself as Andy who lives in Cambridge, working at Arm.
I am a child of the 70's so spent my early teenage years playing with ZX81's, Spectrum's and BBC Micros.
I owned a BBC Model B + Dual 40/80 DS,DD floppies BITD but spent plenty of time round friends on their Sinclair kit too.
Over the past few years I've been taking a nostalgic dip into 8-bit micros and have a Sinclair, Acorn and CBM archive I'm very happy with.
I try and upgrade my machines with CF/SD storage, and Composite output as a minimum and HDMI where possible.
I recently acquired a Jupiter Ace too and have also decided to build one for fun. The keyboard is going to be interesting
Welcome to the somewhat quieter forum than stardot.
I am very jealous of your Jupiter Ace. Unless I save for a long time (or get lucky) they are way outside of my budget.

Hello. A warm welcome to Sinclair ZX World.
I hope you have fun here
I don’t have an original Ace, but I do have a recreated ACE. If you can find the relevant thread, there should be some photos
