With only 17 shopping days to Christmas and as I'm doing an Advent Calendar for you I thought I would break with my tradition and bring you a quick post on a Sunday so you don't feel cheated by not having a window to open.
But first I was intrigued by a story recently about a new British start up which was looking to crowd funding to launch a new updated version of the old Sinclair ZX Spectrum computer to be called the Sinclair Vega. Apparently it will play all the old games, offer new ones to be downloaded on the internet for free and is expected to retail for £100. I'm tempted to get one as I had fun with one of the old ones when I was lad. You can read more about it at the link above if that is of interest to you. it seems the first run of 1000 machines has already been funded so it probably won't be any good for this Christmas. If you want to get one for then you can get on the list for the second production run by pledging at their crowd funding site.
Or you could wait until it is in the shops. So staying on the theme of gaming and if you haven't started or still have a lot of Christmas shopping to do, perhaps this free game in my Advent calendar window will help you to get ready for all that shopping that lies ahead, enjoy.
