I added Graphics and ram boards to my UK101 but they weren't my design,

I then moved onto a Spectrum with double memory (long before Amstrad did it) and a decent Keyboard. My little brother got that later, He went on to become a computer programmer.

Then A Sinclair QL, with 5 1/2 inch floppy, running DOS occasionally  and a weather satellite weather receiver (not my design).

After that it was down hill and the PC world...

Time to get back to measuring 120A to 10 A at 1 part in a million, I think the shunt is warm enough now...

Could have been mine, we did sell them through adverts in PCW and via Comp Shop. We sold them as kits.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Slightly off-topic here, but my first computer was a Sinclair ZX-81 with a massive 1K of RAM!

I got the 16K RAM expansion pack as a birthday present!

I had a 64K RAM pack, no wobble for me.

Same chip I used in my EPROM programmer I built from a design in Practical Electronics.

Yet another item I used to drool over!  :drool:


You could have had mine.

Entering programs each time using that membrane keyboard was a great dis-incentive to use - I couldn't afford the cassette interface!

Ah I remember them all so well; well not so well as it was a long time ago
I remember waiting for weeks for my MK14 (it was a Sinclair product) wondering if I had wasted what about 2 weeks wages.  Now for what half a days wages a machine a thousand times (or more) more powerful.
But they were interesting times and all developments need to start somewhere I remember selling some of the early IBM PCs for 2K+ and paying 300 ish for a 20MB (yes MB Hard disc)

I remember installing a 10MB hard disk at a publishing company as their networked disk accessed by a host of Apple II's.

Happy days!  ::)
