yep and often enough after your 6-7 mins wait, it might still not work or
just leave you looking at the source code and ask you to break or
The best thing was when i upgraded my Spectrum 48k to the 48k+ and I
at last had a reset button! so much more useful than pulling out the plug.
I'm sure it would be possible to store data on an audio tape more reliably
if you could mirror the data from both sides A + B. I dont think there is
point when CDr's are fairly cheap now - starting at as little as 50 pence
each or so...

Bah! How dare you belittle my childhood. I spent most of it sitting in
front of my CPC6128 waiting for those damn tapes to load. :-(
