Today I asked the ZX81 to tell me about itself.

Strictly speaking what I said was:

10 PRINT CHR$ (RND*255);
20 GOTO 10

This is how it felt about the subject.

Being able to talk to it after all these years is strangely cathartic.

@grimmware The font brings up warm memories of a long forgotten past :)

@darkstar hahah, awesome! I've just ordered some ROM flashing kit and found a copy of the source code for the original ROM so I'm actually going to take a stab at modifying the font as my first foray into ROM hacking!

@grimmware :) in those days I had a book with a disassembly of the ROM
