St George, the Dragon, William Shakespeare & the ZX Spectrum

St George Shakespeare X-Wide P

Today is St George’s Day and the anniversary of William Shakepseare’s Birth and Death – It is 448 years since Shakespeare was born and 396 years since he died, St George was last seen alive 1,709 years ago.

Today is also the 30th anniversary of the ZX Spectrum Sinclair Computer (my very first computer) celebrated by Google as an 8bit doodle.
