My father recently bought a Nikon COOLSCAN V ED and has been scanning old pictures. He mailed me this one of me next to our Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

I have never posted this many comments in anyone’s blog..lol..ok here is my comment for this post.
OH MY GOD. i had 2 ZXs too but the one i had were released after the one you have in the picture ( i think)
Did your ZX have smooth edges all around? I remember loading software and games on that.Had to use a tape recorder very similar to the one you have there. Would take about 6 minutes to load Tennis.:) i used to increase the speed a bit so that the tape would run faster. Although, increasing it too much would interrrupt the loading and i would have to start all over again. I always wanted to check out the Commodore 64. Have you ever played around with that? The ZX Spectrum is one of the reasons I wear glasses now, the wires were never long enough.
Ok, this is the one I had.
nice pic !
I’ve got another in that style : in front of an IBM 5100
I was 2 and a half y.o.
