Sinclair ZX Spectrum and one excited developer

For some strange reason I've become completely enamored with the Sinclair ZX Spectrum machine. It's utterly fascinating to me how a small number of chips and some clever programming can make such an amazing machine.

Have been reading through "The ZX Spectrum Ula: How to Design a Microcomputer" and "It's Behind You - The Making of a Computer Game" which has crystalized some of my thinking about development.

It's the first time in a long while that I'm excited about computer development. Who would have thought a computer from 1980s would get me excited again?
