Was it just me or are there any former ZX spectrum owners who had the said problem as I tried to audibly explain in the title of this post.  You' stick the tape in, wait 45 minutes whilst it bloooped, bleeeped, screeeeeamed and then. . . . . . . . . . Nothing! Arggggggggh! makes my blood boil thinking about it now!!!

That keyboard looks like it was a PAIN to type on. Look at the 'space' key.
