Comments: I was young when I got my +2. Spent nearly every waking hour playing it, bought three different magazines every month and had endless arguments with my friends over which computer was best. Loved reading The Years section: brought back many fond memories and taught me a thing or two that I didn't know about at the time. Thank you.

Comments: Great stuff. Came here via a Google for the Hobbit on the Spectrum, but you've got me remembering all the classics. Twin Kingdom Valley probably my favourite, plus Level 9 of course. More screenshots please!

Comments: Great, i loved They Stole a Million back than on the Specy and the CpC464.
The Spectrum had some nice Games but wasnt very popular in Austria. All just had the Commodore C64.
R-Type and Rainbow Islands where also pretty nice on the Specie.

Comments: Great read from a guy that lived the Speccy years too. I often tell people even now that the only reason I have a job is not because of O levels or school but because I was a "computer expert" due to Speccy and at my interview 22 years ago nobody else knew naff all about computers.
Great site and thanks :-)

Comments: Hi there - great website, fascinating stuff!
Thought you might be interested in a funny Speccy video at the following address:
At the moment it's being beaten into 2nd place in a competition by a (pesky) Amstrad computer video ... your vote can help sort it out by 14Aug09!
If you enjoy it then there's a 'DVD Extras video' on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v#r_HKapVxGs0
Enjoy - and thanks again for the great website!
