I've got a 16 kb module for my ZX81 that cost somewhere around 500
dollars.  40+ dollars a K.

I understand now why my dad was so upset with me when i crazy glued it
trying to fix a crack on the casing, and ruined the contacts instead.

I hate being only 26. :)

ZX81 still works, not sure on the TS/1000.  One of my TI99/4A's appears to
have croaked, the other works fine.

MESS plays Mazogs just fine if I remember right.

I'm sure someone will chip in now about the cost of core ram. :D

Hey, if this was my stock ZX81, I ran out of ram long ago in this reply!

Guess there's not too many ZX's on the internet.
