This arrived in the mail today..

Hi guys,

Bought a few items off e-Bay the other day. You might think I bought stuff related to the Commodore 64/128 or the Amiga, but you are wrong.. I actually bought a nice bundle of Spectrum titles! πŸ˜€ I’ve got a sweet little ZX Spectrum as well, but unfortunately no tape or disk drive for it yet, but that will come. πŸ˜‰ Here are two pictures of the lot!

  2. Nice to see these great classic titles have been given a good home; can I have Technician Ted for Christmas – cheers best mate ;-o

    Tip: FF/REW the tapes for a good even tension, always rewind tape when not in use so the data (brown portion) not visible, protecting from potential damage. 25+ years old – precious O_O

    • Hi there,

      Thanks for the info. That was helpful! πŸ™‚ I’ll be sure to FF/REW the tapes and rewind after use. That will probably give them a few more years. How long is the expected lifetime of a cassette btw?

      • Lifespan, I guess that largely depends on many factors such as storage, environment conditions, amount of usage, loss of magnetism, deterioration/physical change (stretch/shrinkage) of the medium – blah blah – supposedly 10 years but I’ve been happily using my Spectrum cassettes for the last 30 years no problems. Thanks god for the World of Spectrum repository though.

        I’ve been testing the Fuse Sinclair Spectrum Emulator on the Raspberry PI – Brilliant!
