Rick Dickinson passes away

Going to frame my 48K Speccy and have it mounted on the wall! :) 


It stimulated an interest in computing that ultimately developed into a career in the industry. The team at Sinclair did amazing things to open up computing to the masses.

Had a ZX81, but not the rubber-key Speccy (got a Spectrum+).


Both were great solutions to industrial design on, and indeed for, a limited budget.


Indeed! I remember drooling over the Spectrum+ when it came out... Proper keyboad? Reset button and legs that gave you a more  comfortable typing angle... such luxury! :D


Managed to snag a complete boxed Spectrum+ computer around 15-20 years ago at a boot sale for £15 with a stack of games.
