Timex/Sinclair fans are a hardy, persistent bunch. When Timex left the market, the community of users and vendors kept on.

The Timex/Sinclair community is still active, writing programs, developing new hardware, supporting each other, and more. Check out our online user group!

Historic Information

The Timex/Sinclair community was quite robust for its size. They continued to develop new hardware, programs, publish magazines, meet as user groups and hold events, for years. ZXir QLive Alive started publication in the 1990s and its last issue was in the early 2000s.

With the advent of online groups, like Yahoo Groups, the community persevered to the present.

The People

Timex sold hundreds of thousands TS 1000s and tens of thousands of the TS 2068. Many of the people who bought those computers held on to them and used them for many years. They wrote articles for magazines and newsletters, participated in their local user groups and attended computer fairs.

User Groups

New user groups sprang up to support the orphaned computers, existing user groups redoubled their efforts and vendors made clear their commitment to continue supporting and developing new products for the computers.


In the 1980s and 1990s, one of the best experiences for any computer enthusiast was a computer fair. These events were regional, and sometimes national, gatherings of like-minded individuals, often around a specific computer but sometimes embracing the entire home computing scene.
