Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Z88 Real Power Computing

Note from the Author.

I spent about twenty years in sales and marketing, before becoming 'retired' in 1997, at the age of 39 after a company take over. Since when I have been travelling and cobbling my own notes on the Z88 into this book. Several years of my career were spent fighting for British exports, in the front line, notably seven years in Australia where I managed a British subsidiary, and, additionally founded, edited and published a semi-technical periodical over a period of several years, before returning to England for domestic reasons.

During 'time' in Australia I developed an general interest in computers, mainly through my contacts with my good friend Stuart Smith, who worked with a mainframe computer. In those days computers were very expensive and relied a lot on data input through punched cards (a throwback to nineteenth century technology). Since those days things in the computer world have changed a lot, and not the least of these changes, in my opinion, is the introduction of the Z88 computer, which offers real computing power commensurate with the real needs of 'personal' computing, within optimum parameters of weight, size, endurance and ease of use. I hope you find my notes and methods contained in this book of use in the guidance and inspiration of your own applications.
Frank R. Flaig.
