Celebrating Thirty Years of ZX81

This year will mark the 30th anniversary of the ZX81's debut. Hard to believe this little wonder is turning thirty and how much the world has changed. My goal is to celebrate the occasion by continuing to update the site with new content. Id like to do a monthly showcase of programs as well.

A Little Change of Color

I finally got around to updating the image and colors for my ZX81 site. I'm using a more muted pallet originated from the pages of the book in the logo. I've decided to keep the same basic layout of the parent site.

Pardon the Dust and Debris

Im in the process of updating the old flat design of this site into a more dynamic one. The original site was designed in the nineties for use on GeoCities and its various requirements and stipulations. Now that GeoCities is dead and the content has been moved to better hosting, Im taking the opportunity to migrate the site to WebAPP.

Surprisingly, the answer is yes!
