A January Sale in Retro Computing Gear?

OK it is not unheard of, but not exactly as common as all of the other January sales - this one is being run by us and has a lot of Sinclair QL, ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64 second hand items at greatly reduced sums (including hardware and software). There is also a wide range of general retro computing books which may be of interest to hardware and software designers. Actually, we even have a set of books for the Psion 3 for sale !!

The sale ends at the end of January 2008, although everything is with limited stocks, so get your order in quick. We also aim to add some more items at the start of January to help clear our shelves for projects in 2008. See the link at the top of our home page ( for details - the sales list is provided as a word document (don't worry, we have virus checked it!) - if you would like it in another format, please ask.

Now what can our customers expect for 2008?

Well, we have our fingers in a few pies at the moment, with the following projects hopefully coming online during 2008:
- Sinclair QL Hardware (not yet confirmed but it will be welcome news for Super Gold Card and Q40 / Q60 users).
- More stock of the DivIDE Plus, hopefully putting our production problems behind us.
- Replacement composite video kits (possibly even an external version) to make your Spectrum,. ZX81, BBC Micro, Sinclair QL (etc) work on a modern TV.
- Joystick interface with a through port (suitable for PlusD and hopefully the original DivIDE hard disk interface).
- Microdrive connectors - both the flexible cable to connect a ZX Microdrive to a ZX Interface 1 or a Sinclair QL, and a replacement "hard connector" to join two ZX Microdrive units together (although they will not be able to be screwed together).

Let's hope 2008 is a good year for retro computing and brings us all some good luck and wealth

We wish all our customers a happy and prosperous new year.
