The pioneering British built home computer, the Sinclair Spectrum has its' 25th birthday party this week. A real milestone in the development of the personal computer - okay, it was not exactly cutting edge even at the time, but it did enable many people to get access to a proper home computer at the time when they were extremely expensive and previously unobtainable by the masses. Blimey - I feel old - I remember the very first full page colour magazine adverts for the humble Speccy, even before it was made available in the likes of Currys, Boots and Dixons. A world away now. I still have an original 48K model stashed away at my mum's house. I must dig the thing out for a play.
