"I will release a fully open source replacement firmware for the ZX Spectrum but only if 100 people will donate £10 (or more) each to the Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal."

Many retro hardware enthusiasts enjoy building clones of the ZX Spectrum (8-bit computer), but using the original firmware (ROM) in these machines is illegal. An open source replacement firmware will allow enthusiasts to pursue their hobby without infringing copyright, and enable them to sell fully assembled units to other enthusiasts.
Please donate now. I will release the software when the total number of people who have donated reaches 100.
