Thread: a little story

  1. a little story

    i wrote this pamphlet last night www.3day.co.uk/zx81/ and dug my ZX81
    out from under the stairs today, I found 3 games as well, 3D Monster
    Maze, Flight Simulation and Brickstop and I put the games on ebay, I
    also found a Space Invaders watch that delighted my friends at school
    and it may just need new batteries

    basically, I am going to try to surf the internet with text only on my
    ZX81...

    I don't get that pamphlet at all
    I gave up trying at the part about buying a zx81 so I can learn to help
    you write a new operating system.
    oh, I await your new microprocessor with great anticipation, I'm sure
    the nanotechnology specialists, and the engineers at intel and amd will
    be very interested to see what you could do. lol

    what anything on that page has to do with surfing the net on an 81 I
    cannot fathom

    don't worry Alistair, there is more to be added, I passed the first 2
    years of a Degree in Electronic and Information Engineering about 18
    years ago and I was the best programmer on the course and very strong
    at digital electronics and math
    I have a USB Experimenter Board for my laptop with 5 digital inputs
    and 8 digital outputs, and whilst I was in the bookies (a gambling
    shop) tonight I scribbled the logic onto the back of a betting slip...

    No Computer can make that colors, better staying real and thinking to a
    B/W ZX ;-)
    Or taking just some out, as it has been a success with the Spectrum ZX.

    the USB experimenter board acts as an interface, I have a female
    connector to connect to the ZX81 male rampack port
    once I have got it going, I will make a dedicated circuit probably
    using Surface Mount Assembly components...


  11. Re: a little story

    I fail to see how the component package type has anything to do with
    anything. or how a PC driven usb interface is going to get a zx81 online...

    Alistair, I believe your trip to London filled your head full of air
    I have just researched the ZX81 male port on a website that shows the
    pages of the original ZX81 manual
    and I also saw there the opcodes for the machine code to get inputs
    (in) and ouputs (out) after EDh (character 237 Gosub)

    Maybe he just intends to use the zx81 as a text based terminal or even just
    a keyboard, with the computer it's plugged into doing all the work

    Seems pointless, but... *shrug*

    that's it Alistair, I am slightly drunk now, been out with my best
    mate who works for the Barclay Brothers
    I can see that you are a middle class so and so, who is looking to
    inherit a house...

    What does inheriting a house have to do with middleclassishness?
    Many working class people in the UK BOUGHT their houses back in the 50s/60s,
    they weren't all council estate chavs.
