    Yup. Remember that one well. 4" T-shaped thing with rainbow ribbon.
    Local library used to lend the games out. Had loads of C-60 & C-90 tapes with index cards full of the counter positions for the games.
    No idea what I paid, or where from. Must have been a postal order from Zzap64 advert.

    Beat Spectum tape-to-tape tho' where the wrong volume meant a lot of trial and error and re-taping.

    /edit/ Found it TRIGSOFT DCL-1

    Did any of you guys get a spectrum next? For some reason I bought two of them on the kickstarter. Love the spectrum.
