Well not been doing much lately on the PC programming side of things. Mostly because I seem to have lost my mojo as of late. So I thought I would dig out the old vintage computers and give them a bit of TLC and do a few repairs and upgrades.

While digging around for the circuit diagram to fix the audio distortion of my Sinclair ZX Spectrum +3 (issue 2). I came across this little gem of a site. If you feel like doing a bit of a nostalgic retro programming or fancy having a go at learning about old home computers, then you should check out the site. And to you young'un out there, you will see what us old buggers had to do to get the best out of the limited hardware we had. But you will have an easier time with all this modern PC software than what those of us back in the 70s, 80s and 90s had.

Sorry for the question... What do you mean by losing the "mojo"? I don't know how to translate it and I've seen it mentioned before ... Do you mean inspiration? Or maybe wanting to play and have fun like a monkey? :D
For the first one, you just have to want to tell something that you have learned and want to share, I don't know, something with a moral or related to learning something about life.
For the second, watch a child play for 20 minutes, you will relearn the concept of fun again. :)

losing the "mojo"
It has many meanings depending on your country. But it's most commonly use in the U.S and believed to originate from West Africa during the dark days of the slave trade.

Slang meaning: Mojo is defined as good luck, charm or skill that seems to come from something magical or supernatural.

It's also Spanish for Sauce.

Thank you!
Mojo will no longer be just a CerberusX graphic library for me. :)

I will surely not tell you anything new... But...
Once, talking with a friend painter. I asked him how he painted a picture, his motivation, what he hoped to achieve.
He replied that everything was related to emotions. The painter's own as well as the observer's. Those that the painter wanted to make feel the one who observed his painting.
Surprise, joy, sadness, disagreement, anger, love etc. For all he showed me an associated color ...


What is the "magic / mojo" you want to give to what you do?
What is the "magic" you are feeling?
