Got an untested Timex Sinclair 1000 for giggles, turns out it only need 30 minutes of work to fix. Now its a tested and working Timex Sinclair 1000. I know.. I know... it's still a piece of junk lol.

    Those were more popular over in the UK, I think. Though they were sold here. I remember seeing them in stores on display.

    The computer industry had a bowel movement when Sinclair came to market.

    I had one of those, it was a good cheap learning tool for BASIC programming. I also had a few games for it, like the official Frogger, which sucked out loud.

The new Opcode Color Line games for the Colecovision look awesome! Warp Warp especially. Good to see more unique titles make it *somewhere* for a change.

    Warp & Warp is unique? It already exists for MSX, Sord M5, PV-1000 and Famicom, at the very least. So yes, unique for being an originally US released system.

I just got a hoax email about I owe someone 8*10^2954 USD. I don't even know what that number is called, if it even has a name but one thing for certain, I don't have that much money!

    just pay it in pre 2008 Zimbabwe money money, it'll be like 3 usd. Also Tickled_Pink check your math there, it is 8 with nearly 3000 zeroes behind it, like how the speed of light is 3.0*10^8 m/s

    Aha, (8*10) xor 2954 = 3034. Actually the quoted number in the spam contained 2955 digits, which I truncated to a scientific notation so that can't be the case.
