Real Power Computing
Note from the Author.
I spent about twenty years in sales and marketing, before
becoming 'retired' in 1997, at the age of 39 after a company take over.
Since when I have been travelling and cobbling my own notes on the Z88 into
this book. Several years of my career were spent fighting for British exports,
in the front line, notably seven years in Australia where I managed a British
subsidiary, and, additionally founded, edited and published a semi-technical
periodical over a period of several years, before returning to England for
During 'time' in Australia I developed an general interest
in computers, mainly through my contacts with my good friend Stuart Smith,
who worked with a mainframe computer. In those days computers were very
expensive and relied a lot on data input through punched cards (a throwback
to nineteenth century technology). Since those days things in the computer
world have changed a lot, and not the least of these changes, in my opinion,
is the introduction of the Z88 computer, which offers real computing power
commensurate with the real needs of 'personal' computing, within optimum
parameters of weight, size, endurance and ease of use. I hope you find my
notes and methods contained in this book of use in the guidance and inspiration
of your own applications.
