Sinclair FAQ Wiki

This wiki is an attempt at rebooting the Sinclair FAQ

At the moment it is simply an experiment to see whether the Sinclair community think it is a suitable way to take the FAQ forwards, and whether it will encourage participation and hopefully avoid the pitfalls that have plagued the original FAQ and the Tech Wiki.

If this experiment is successful the aim is for it to replace the existing Sinclair FAQs and Tech Wiki as a central repository for Sinclair related information on the internet.
