This site is dedicated to the vast number of people who, having discovered the ZX Sinclair Spectrum in the early eighties, have come to realise that now in the 21st century, the only real use a PC has, is to run the many available Speccy emulators that magically transport us to where we truly belong: 1982!
The speccy spawned a generation of machine code programmers who can now be seen employed in some of the worlds biggest software houses. Even the software publishers can still be seen and are activity involved in developement across multiple platforms.

Sir Clive Sinclair is an inventor who was born in London in 1940. He left school at 17 having completed his secondary education at St.George's College, Weybridge and became a technical journalist for four years. He has been attributed to countless innovative technical inventions and is considered by many to have kick-started the early home computer market with the ZX81 and the Spectrum.
The Spectrum is a testiment to his genius; an entire generation of developers who got their first taste of programming are subsequently responsible for some of today's high-end gaming environments.
