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!

If you want to build and use a Harlequin 128 kit, but can’t find a ZX Spectrum 128K ROM (such as the Toast Rack one), you can just use a ZX Spectrum 48K ROM instead.
This will run any game without any problem, as shown in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3g-s2ZOStOs.
48K ROMs are way more easy to obtain (though we sometimes offer a couple of original Toast Rack ROMs in the webshop).
Underneath some photos of the small modification needed for using a 48K ROM in a Harlequin 128 board.
So you will need to solder a wire from pin 14 to pin 27, and bend pin 27 outside so it won’t go into the ROM socket on the Harlequin board:
I didn’t yet post this on ByteDelight (it was on my old website), so I think it’s a good time to do it now:
Started a new page showing compatibility of several interfaces.
