My first computer was a rubber key 48k ZX spectrum. I have fond memories of returning home from school and typing, load “”. Then inserting the tape of my choice in the external tape player. Favorite games included: paperboy, jetset willy, manic miner, attic attack, horace goes skiing, jetpac, pssst….
After the fantastic rubber key speccie, I had the James Bond Living Daylights Spectrum 128k+ pack which light gun!!! Then an Atari ST. The most memorable game I had for that was Joust.
I just found an awesome java ZX spectrum emulator, http://www.zxspectrum.net/.
