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.

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.

Un intenso recorrido por la historia del Sinclair QL, las posibles causas de de su fracaso, y el efecto de las obsesiones de Sir Clive en el proyecto. Pero además podrás descubrir muchos aspectos de esta máquina que quedaron en el olvido, funcionalidades sorprendentes y avanzadas a la época en algunos casos, y menos útiles en otros. Un ordenador interesante, que también ha contado con desarrollos posteriores a su desaparición comercial, e incluso una evolución de la plataforma a nuevo hardware.
