Could never play that, we had a black & White telly to play on.

LOL. The Green ball was literally a white circle and using the green from the table. Good old speccy.

I am proud to stay, I still have my original speccy from the day.

I cleaned in up and put it in a display case, cos it deserves it.

Mind you, I started on a zx81... But you just cant get them any more.

We've got an original speccy at work somewhere.
It's a non-runner though, and I haven't had the chance to fix it yet, but one day!

We've still got all the bits and spares for it from back in the day....

If anyone has their "old" Spectrum laying around,  get it on ebay now! Prices for 80s console games are going through the roof at the moment :o
