I'm Steve. 43 years of age. Got my first Speccy in 1984. Loved programming in BASIC. Got my pledge in & hoping to receive a NEXT in January. Planning to load tapes into it using my original Dixons branded data cassette player, and dabble with programming again.

Hello RetroSteveUK. Welcome to the Forum.
I'll be using a cassette to start with as well. I just ordered a New-In-Box shoe-box style Panasonic RQ-2120 cassette recorder off eBay. I hope it works! I want to experience the Speccy from the ground up. I look forward to your posts.

Wow. Has it really been that long? I'm 46 now. My prediction was pretty much spot on. I have loaded tapes using my Dixons cassette deck, and I have been programming again. Never received my Next in Jan 2017 though, lol. Took a bit longer than I was expecting.

Having ordered the Next + "Just the Board" I received my first Next late in 2017. Because of this I'm used to use the Next now.

Have a lot of fun with your device.
