64k? HA! Boy, my second computer was a ZX-81 with but a single measly Kilobyte of memory. I drooled over a the ZX-81 expansion pack for a full 16K.

Uphill! Bothways! Etc! In the days when computer were less cool than Ham Radio's, and assembly was a high level language! How soon we forget!

    My first was a ZX-80, my second was a ZX-81 with 1K memory. My Dad (who worked for ICL at the time) came home one day with a 2K chip, suddenly my horizons were expanded 100%. A few weeks later over a weekend he built me a 16K RAM Pack, giving me 18K RAM ... the limits seemed endless.

    Peeking and Poking memory locations was the height of fashion back then :)
