El próximo sábado 27 de julio, a partir de las 17 horas, estaremos de nuevo en directo con vosotros para hablaros del lenguaje de programación BASIC. Sin duda este lenguaje tiene un significado especial para muchos de nosotros, puesto que fue lo primero que nos encontramos cuando encendimos nuestros queridos ordenadores de 8 bits. Desde luego no comenzó en esa época la andadura del BASIC, así que os invitamos a descubrirlo con nosotros.

RetroActivo Podcast #15: Spectrum Anniversary

12 May , 2012   Video

By surprise, don’t know if Juansa was the one who came up with the idea of making this program (who would have thought at the time from a recalcitrant MSX user), which explains how went the event that we at RetroMallorca dedicated to the ZX Spectrum. People attending wasn’t as much as RetroMallorca 2011, as expected since it hadn’t the same fundings and advertising. But the important thing is we enjoyed it a lot.

In this program we had some of the participants in the event, who broght us their vision of it, and their experience and memories of a machine that celebrated its 30 years.

Lo sentimos, la publicación del podcast del libro electrónico se retrasa, pero tenemos una buena excusa. Se debe a que este sábado 21 de abril RetroMallorca organiza el festejo del 30 aniversario del ZX Spectrum en el Centro Cultural de s’Escorxador, Palma, con un montón de actividades que nos han tenido ocupados. ¡Os esperamos a todos!

El tema del próximo podcast no está muy claro pero, dado el reciente fallecimiento de Jack Tramiel, fundador de Commodore, aumentan las probabilidades de que aprovechemos para abordar el tema con una segunda parte sobre la compañía.

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.
