Don't adjust your sets

Thursday, September 23, 2010

Browsing the web on a Spectrum is a bit of a novelty, but you wouldn't want the wind to change and for it to stick like that. Only by foisting image compression on their mobile broadband customers, that's what T-Mobile expect you to live with.

...and I did until I came across a neat little workaround; a Firefox extension known as Modify Headers and the instructions for hacking the T-Mobile web proxy.

Reminds me of buying Robocop way back in 1988 after being mesmerized by the groundbreaking graphics on the back of the box, and seeing this! when I loaded the game on my Spectrum 128k. At least then they had the decency to admit - albeit in micro-print - that the screenshots were taken from the arcade version.
