    Youtube has the whole 1911 thing going.

    Just view a video and push the 1911 button in the bottom right hand corner. It's ok and the first one that I've seen really...

    I have a ZX80 that I got from a computer collector. Is it now obsolete because of the ZX81? :eek:

    Ah, the ZX81 - the first computer I ever owned and a device that literally shaped my life:
    As soon as I started using it I was hooked on programming. Then I had a game published commercially and realised I could actually make some money from my hobby, which was a revelation as a 15 year old.
    30 years on, I'm still making a living from development, but nowadays it's enterprise level systems that are my bread and butter.
    Those were the days ;)


    Back on topic, Google have Gmail Motion - control your Gmail with your body :)

    Oh yes! In fact it wont even work anymore once the reviews for the ZX81 come out and say how wonderful it is! ;)

    Ah sweet! Never owned one myself although my mate did. Was more of a Commodore 64 fan myself. Hours of fun on that Bruce Lee game, spy hunter too. And who can forget Turrican 2 ! :D

    WTF is this doing in the Thames river? Nessie defecting... today of all days?

    Maybe this is why The Doctor appears to be heading over to the Greenwich Royal Observatory (The Prime Meridian)
