The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

If you go all teary-eyed at the thought of Clive Sinclair astride his mighty ZX81, then we can recommend something right up your street - a musical ditty from Web wags b3ta.

"Hey hey 16k" - a rather catchy Britpop sort of affair - is the work of MJ Hibbett and the Validators. The accompanying Flash animation is courtesy of b3ta.

Naturally, there's a shirt to go with this, which you can get from (and this is starting to get a bit nepotistic) none other than NTKMart.

Yes, yes, enough of the hard sell, how does it go exactly? Well, here's an extract from the chorus: "Hey hey 16K/ What does that get you today?/ You need more than that for a letter/ Old skool Ram Paks are much better". You get the idea. For the full experience, boogie on down to the b3ta nostalgia jukebox. ®
