Never had a speccy. They were rare as hens teeth here in Australia (at least in my circles). People were either c64 or Amstrad CPC users (predominantely the former, with a few of the latter). Prior to that I had a Tandy TRS-80 coco1 (upgraded to 64KB).
Nonetheless its always fun to see peope enjoying their retro computers. I'd love to get myself a trs80 coco3 one day. Quite a nice 8bit machine that actually reminds me of the Sam Coupe (although I believe the coco3 came 1st).
