Spectranet! The one and only Ethernet interface for the ZX Spectrum

In case you missed it: Spectranet is coming up (again)!

This is the only Ethernet interface for the ZX Spectrum with an awesome amount of software support:
– Great BASIC extensions: connect to a server without the need of loading additional software
– Browse through filesystems with very easy to use commands!
– Load games and other software directly from the internet!
– Set up a public or personal server with the available tools!

Dylan Smith developed this interface years ago, but the community is finally ready for it!
