Violet Berlin tweeted to remind us that Bad Influence (the CITV show) is now 30 years old. We think back to some the tech/computer/console/gaming shows of the time and wonder what similar shows the rest of the world had. Have you seen the 'Quake' engine that has been created for the Sinclair Spectrum? Even at 3.5Mhz it is very impressive. We take a look and Chris made some footage of it running at 3.5Mhz and at 7Mhz. Finally, a new computer museum is opening in Leigh (UK), in an old mill of all places. ctrl-alt-rees has been to take a look. Will Neil have any advice for them?
