Need ZX80/81/TS1000 experts

Post by rkindig » Sat Apr 28, 2018 4:15 pm

Hi, I host a podcast called Floppy Days (floppydays.com) on vintage computing and am looking for experts on the ZX80/81/TS1000 as I will be covering that computer line in the next episode.

Please let me know if you could help.

thank you!

I wouldn't be asking for ex-perts but for now-perts since the former will likely have forgotten some things. :lol:

So what would you like to know?
Hires? Especially in 1K? I am the man.

Also, if anyone wants their "3 minutes of fame", please create an audio file with your thoughts and memories of the ZX80, ZX81 or TS1000 and there's a good chance I'll use it on the Floppy Days episode.

Please PM me if you are interested in doing this.

thanks!!

Been told this was a stab at humor. I worked 20 hrs OT that week. Thinking more like a zombie. But I get it....zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I’m not looking for humor. I’m looking for people who want to help.
