BuZz , I had a 32 k ram pack and a Kempston Joystick plus the good old "burning" printer , it was a weird thing that had a little bent needle type thing that burnt the image on to metalised paper .
A friends Dad that worked for BT got me some from work but it was 2 inches too long but he managed to cut it down to size for me and it worked a treat :-)
I also remember the printer was the first " gadget " I fixed as the stylus thing broke but I bought the part off Sinclair and fixed it up .

Jaydee999 I always say that , if your mind gets old its game over 8-) .

An! I remember the days you could get 5 pennyworth of chips and still get change from a tanner! probably wrong sort of chips though.

Shame that 64gig is still too small for my mp3 collection. Still using hard disks. Despite being mechanical they seem to last a while.

Love the posts, guys.

Just sharing my success booting W10 from a CoreBios Joggler off one of these Lexar USB sticks so they must be fast / good for our Jogglers

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01 ... UTF8&psc=1

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com ... L1500_.jpg

I went for the 32 gig one for £10.33 but the 16 Gig ones are £7.98
There didnt seem to be any black ones left so i got a blue , if it bothers me plugged in to the Joggler i will colour it in black with a permanent marker :-)
