a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Sounds like a pretty cool idea...do you have a deadline in mind?
Oh. Wow. This makes me so happy, and I'm really excited that you have an ZX81 up and running... with a printer no less! I will try to contribute something, I promise.
I think I might write you a 704 character wonder on my many superstitions I had as a kid for getting tapes to load properly on crappy 80s computers (ie must stare fixedly at tape player entire time, must remain in room, must not cross legs etc)

That would be absolutely perfect. I've rediscovered the joys of that since owning a ZX81 again. It's actually still possible to buy mono "shoebox" tape recorders new, and it works OK, but can be very temperamental.
I bought a tiny 5" black and white telly for it as well, as it wouldn't work with the two flatscreens in my house.
Maybe you can use this picture (based on an Andy Warhol self portrait):
Maybe someone else can use this template I made for myself while working on that picture:
