Arriving home from the meeting to organize the anniversary I find this email:

From: Steve Wilcox
To: info@retromallorca.com
Subject: Happy 30th Birthday Sinclair ZX Spectrum

Just read about your event next week and wanted to send you our best wishes for a wonderful evening.

Given the theme, we thought you might like to know that you can still enjoy ZX Spectrum games 'on the go' via our Apps, including:

ZX Spectrum: Elite Collection

and ZX Spectrum: Elite Collection HD

You can also follow our celebrations of the event on Twitter @elite_systems

On Elite Systems website:

Incorporated in England in 1984, Elite was originally a leading developer and publisher of groundbreaking games for the Sinclair Spectrum and Commodore 64 home computer systems.

Today Elite is a highly-specialised developer AND publisher of game software products for handheld, mobile and wireless systems; providing mobile network operators and selected other partners around the globe with "the best names in mobile games".

Whether you're looking for the latest groundbreaking new title releases, or the ultimate retro gaming for your mobile / handheld, welcome to Elite!

By the way, do not confuse the software house with the game Elite (Juanjo is doing something like a remake in Java)

Your games (Bomb Jack, Commando, Ghost ‘n Goblins, Ikari Warriors, 1942 and many others) made us dream! We’re looking forward to see the current products for more platforms! Thank you very much, Steve!

Have you kept a Sinclair Spectrum computer for years and don’t know if it works or not?

13 Apr , 2012  

If your case is you don’t have the power supply, the cassette tape player does not work, missing TV cable or any other reason, you now have the opportunity to check if your computer is still “alive”.

Bring your computer to RetroMallorca, whether the model is of Spectrum, or Sam Coupé ;-), and we will check its “health” for free.

BASIC demoscene competition of Speccy.org forum users

12 Apr , 2012  

On the 21st we are suggesting trying to do something to compete in the BASIC demoscene competition for Speccy.org forum users, either alone or in groups (contact us). It’s a competition without deadline: you develop a demo which competes with the winner to date, ad eternum.

(Castellano) Se acerca RetroActivo Podcast #14: Historia del libro electrónico

31 Mar , 2012   Video

Sorry, this entry is only available in European Spanish. For the sake of viewer convenience, the content is shown below in the alternative language. You may click the link to switch the active language.

Hola amigos,

Hoy a las 17h tomaremos asiento con los compañeros de Soopbook.com para hablar de la historia del libro electrónico. -¿Historia?, ¡pero si eso salió practicamente ayer!

Vale, tenéis razón, pero seguro que no sabéis qué famosa empresa empezó a estudiar el papel electrónico hace ya más de 30 años o qué personaje de La Coruña se considera una de las precursoras del libro electrónico. Pero tranquilos, nosotros tampoco lo sabíamos hasta hace escasos días y aquí estamos. Así que ¿qué mejor momento para vernos y hablar de todo esto que mañana en el podcast?

También comentaremos el concurso de videojuegos que celebra la escuela Edib aquí en Mallorca y como viene siendo habitual contaremos con un reto, esta vez el de crear una guía de cómo NO debe hacerse un podcast y cuyo objetivo es conseguir completarla entre toda la gente que participa en el podcast y nos escucha. Si quieres puedes ir viendo los capítulos de los que se forma esta guía y empezar a añadir información en http://retromallorca.us2.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=74417fbbfa622a652bd5f6f79&id=40f3e60ff0&e=9487f9bfbc aunque lo que ahora te recomendamos es que te acerques 20 minutos antes de empezar y compartas con nosotros algo de información que conozcas, hayas buscado o que tengas por casa. ¿A qué esperas? jovenes…

RetroMallorca celebrates the 30th Anniversary of the Spectrum at s’Escorxador

23 Mar , 2012  

In 2012 RetroMallorca will be diversified. Instead of one big event we will have different specific ones on a smaller scale but equally interesting.

The first will be a party to commemorate the 30 years since the appearance of the ZX Spectrum, one of the best selling computers sold in Spain in those days and that was the start in computing for many people. It will take place on April 21 at the Cultural Center of s’Escorxador, Palma de Mallorca. More details on the space we have dedicated to it on our website.

Here’s the result of hard work done by TBG and David Caldés, the video (in Spanish) that was premiered in RetroMallorca 2011, dedicated to the consoles that went almost unnoticed around the 90’s.
