    I too had a Sinclair but I gotcha' beat though, I had a 64k RAM pack!!!! Recorded my stupid programs on cassette tape but it only functioned about 50% of the time.

    My next computer was a Zenith laptop with 10Mb HD with 8086 processor - that was 1988 and cost $2500. At this time I was using the first world wide web with dos-based programs and dialing up Oregon State University main frame from the University of Montana. Whew, those were the days.

    Cheers!
