First of all, Happy 25th Birthday to the Sinclair ZX Spectrum. I got one of the 16K versions when they first came out. It melted the carpet in the lounge because the heatsink was screwed. I sent it back and got another one which worked perfectly. That was sold to Steven Shotton a few years later and I upgraded to the 48K version.

I still work in IT, Steven still works in IT. I think the ZX Spectrum was part of the reason why. Fantastic little machine. Happy Birthday.

Secondly, Boris Yeltsin, you may have been drunker than an Irishman on St Patrick's Day in Boston, but good lord, you did entertaining things while in charge of Russia. I, and probably the vodka makers of the world, salute you, and raise a little water in your honour.

Rest in peace, at least the hangovers won't be as bad now.
