to find some intrinsic meaning in life enjoying eccentricity
in other people makes it all the more bearable.

i hope his coffin was made of rubber and crashed before it
hit the bottom of the grave so he knows how i felt.

i know he always seemed a bit miffed that the spectrum
became used as a games machine rather than business machine,
but i hope he secretly had a few games of Jet Set Willy on
the sly!

Spectrum massively altered British culture, when I think of

I find Andrew Orlowski, who used to be the editor of
theregister.co.uk, a decent follow on twitter... eg. he just
linked this decent long read about Mr. Clive:
