    Sadly I had these - the ZX80 and 81 had flat plastic keypad, it was the much beloved Spectrum with the squishy rubber keys.

    I'm too young to remember all the "old classics" :cry: My first foray into the world of computing was a used Amiga 500 in 1997 8O

    The ZX81 was my first ever computer. I can remember being overjoyed because my parents had brought me the 16K expansion pack to go with it as non of my friends had the expansion pack with theirs.

    Anyone else having problems getting the Online versions working because of the licensing? I keep being told that the server can't be found, either from the web page, from Media Player or from downloading and trying to play locally

    I had trouble with the licencing after waiting 2 minutes I pressed cancel and it let me watch it. This was for a copy I downloaded.

    Dissapointing episode though I didnt laugh once

    The nasty DRM hateses my Mac Luckily there are other places to download it on the web. A simple Google will help you out

    Remember to delete the file after watching so that you don't breach copyright
