25th anniversary for the ZX Spectrum April 29, 2007Posted by winden in in real life.
Seeing all over the news the 25th anniversary… I’ve been reminded I took a test some years ago about spectrum knowledge… the ZX Spectrum Certification from the World of Spectrum website. The speccy was of course my first computer when I was 8 years old… back then anything related to computers was cool… even just seeing the thing write in the telly when I pressed the keys! Even more fascinating were the noises for loading the programs… you really quickly learnt to associate certain sounds… such as the “always the same but slowly progressing” screen loading sounds… anyone surprised that many Spectrum junkies would end up liking noise, trance and progressive music? ;)
