    Re: Oxford chaps solve problem in 1982 Sinclair Spectrum manual

    I missed this until now... Wow!
    Always knew the Sinclair had potential. I had the Timex version and the choice of the T.O.S. operating system from Zebra(?) which came with 3" (not 3 1/4) disk drives or the Larkin Disk Drive System.
    If I could write working programs on it well it could control the world.
    Starting in Sinclair Basic, I quickly found I needed something that could more programming into the spectrum's limited memory. I found a "C" compiler for it but could never get up the interest to start something with it.
    Then I found Forth. Wrote a co-ordinate geometry program and tried my hand at a few games that did not turn out too well.
    I have only a few Spectrum friends left, this is going back a way, as most have passed but I am sending the link to those who remain.
    Most unfortunate i got rid of all my Spectrum stuff, could never find it again.

    Thanks Doctor!
