Hardware, Embedded Systems "Clive Sinclair's ZX Spectrum is a quarter of a century old today. The machine that really launched the UK IT industry hit the streets of a depressed Britain on 23 April, 1982. Dark days, then. But lo, along came bespectacled Messiah Sir Clive Sinclair with the successor to his 1981 release, the black-and-white ZX-81. The ZX Spectrum boasted a visual cortex-melting eight colours at 256 x 192 resolution, blistering 3.5MHz CPU, and crucially, a crisp-repelling vulcanised rubber keyboard."

You can only call it the 'wrong way' if you use it outside of its boundaries. VB's model is one of event driven execution. There's nothing wrong with that, provided you use it as intended.

For those interested in in remakes of old speccy games like Skool Daze and other classics -
