in thread My first computer was...

Did any of the Sinclair ZX Spectrum users had any experience with extension units for plugging in a microcasette recorder and a printer

I love the smell of thermal printer in the morning :-)

Ah, the joy of dark grey on light grey hardcopy all of four inches wide and paper so sensitive it went all black if you left it on a hot windowsill.

    Don't forget that if the printout was longer than a few inches that it would roll up upon itself and be impossible to read without the aid of half your library and a spare pair of hands.

    Was it the spectrum or the ZX-81 that had the expansion pack that would pop out if you leaned on the keyboard too hard?

    A.A.

      The ZX-80 & 81 were notorious for this, although speccy expansion packs were not a whole lot better.

      Please stop,*snif*, you're making me weep with nostalgia.
