  1. Hello!

    Do you also sell any of your computers, like the SINCLAIR SPECTRUM 48k, in that case; how much does it cost?
    Thankful of answers!

    Yours sinceraly: Richard Andersson, SWEDEN

  2. Man!!!!!

    I love your collection!!! I am an ex collector soon to be collector again. I had a nice collection about 7 years ago from what I had been collecting from boot fairs but they were being stored in my parents cellar and when getting ready to move my step father chucked the lot into a skip!!! It was heart breaking! All i have left is a 48k rubber key unitt and a +3 unit with a faulty power pack. This year I plan to hit the boot fairs again and start trying to build up a collection once again.

    It’s nice to see such a cool collection!

  3. Cheers Joe, it’s taken quite a while to get it together… Sorry to hear about the fate of your last collection and wish you all the best with starting your new one!

  4. Joe Day – would you like a Sinclair ZX Spectrum, 48k RAM, boxed with manuals and leads?

  5. Sorry, forgot to add the cassettes included:

    Scrabble
    Make-a-chip
    Science Horizons Survival
    Horizons Software Start pack

    Fighter Pilot
    Chequered Flag

  6. Hi Debs,

    Wow, it’s a little late to reply and no doubt you have rid the boxed 48k by now, for some reson I have only just had the reply come through to my email!!!

    If you still have it, my email is joeday76@gmail.com please do get in touch!!!

    Many thanks

  7. Hi Debs,

    Only just got this message for some reason – if you still have it I would very much be interested.

    Please contact me joeday76@gmail.com

    many thanks :)

  8. Hey people

    This may sound like the randomist question in the world, but I am looking for the original box for a ZX Spec+3 128k. I have the console and all its components (including instruction manual!) I just need the box to put it in. Anyone know how or where I would get one?

    Thanks in advance

  9. Unlikely you will just find a box, your best bet is to find a ‘spares or repair’ +3 with box on fleabay. Probably your cheapest option.

  10. Hi what serial numbers do you have for the QL’s,thanks

  11. Sorry for the late reply on this…

    D12-042616
    D16-108932
    D06-006429

    All green serials

    Cheers, Ant

  12. Hi,

    I don’t know if you’ll be able to help me… I’m trying to track down a VERY old computer game that was written by my father on his first computer, A Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

    The Game was called Poker Patience and was written by Peter Searle. Sadly his computer and the original copy of the game were stolen years ago but I know he did make some copies at the time. That he gave to colleagues and people he knew to have computers, at the time there weren’t many of them obviously.

    Anyway, I’m fully aware the chances of finding it are slim but this seems like a good place to start! If you or anyone has any information or advise on how to track something like this down I would be infinitely grateful!

    Thanks, Eleanor

  13. Hi Eleanor, the first place to check for ZX Spectrum software would be WOS (www.worldofspectrum.org) but unfortunately I have just searched their archives and they have nothing listed for Peter Searle or under Poker Patience. Was the game self-published? Only thing I can suggest is to Google it now and again and hope it pops up on eBay or someone logs it on WOS. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help!

    Regards, Ant
