8bitnews – The birth of the premier 8bit news site

This project has been whirling around in my head for years. I now finally found the time and passion to do turn it into reality.

I don’t want to go on about it but basically this first post is just to give you an overview of what the site is about. (If the title didn’t give it away!)

My fascination with 8bit computers started with my first ZX Spectrum+ back in 1984. After that I progressed (regressed?) to an Acorn Electron and then a BBC Master 128.

Anyway, this will hopefully become a one-stop-shop for all the news of things happening in the still thriving 8bit world.
