Faster than a speeding Panda

It's been more than a hundred days since I placed a pre-order on the demonic box. While those guys are still trying to sort out their nubs I certainly haven't been biting my nails idly.

Immediately after placing my order I set upon a quest. A quest to construct my own computing device. An so, after more than three months of planning, designing, etching, drilling and soldering I proudly present to you (lots of drum rolls and dramatic chords..) the one, the only, Fanatik 1!

Fanatik 1 is a one-of-a-kind computer heavily inspired by the classic 80's microcomputers, specifically the ZX Spectrum.

I should get back to you soon with more details on the F-1. I will also present you with a series of quizzes. Today the question is simple: Try to name as many Speccy computer game protagonists as you can recognize etched on the Fanatik board. The winner will receive an original browser cookie.
