    It's threads like this that I wished we had some sort of voting system for each post. Superb work Z.

    I've got one of Keith's adapters on my +3 and I can wholeheartedly recommend it.

    What a beautiful thing, it some ways it is a shame the keyboard and case hides all that lovely work.

    I picked up my IDE storage device from the great dark Lord of Hackery, Zetro. I highly recommend it to people here - it is a truly magnificent way of playing Speccy stuff!

    The menu system is excellent, I look forward to the next chapter on adding new files to it.
    Love consoles and computers, all welcome in my collection!

    Awesome stuff, just what I've been waiting for

    I still have my +3 upgrade to do! Any chance of a guide for the software too?

    @Zetr0

    Hi my friend

    The +3e game launcher is freeware or shareware? Where I can get/buy it?

    Thanks in advance
