"Home computing weekly" magazine issue 1

Hi, Can anyone provide a readable scan or picture of page 19 of issue 1 of Home computing weekly? It is the short listing for "Bomber" that I am interested in. The scan on archive.org is unreadable: https://archive.org/stream/home-computing-weekly-001/Home_Computing_Weekly_001#page/n17/mod...

Re: MIA Games on eBay

OK Col,
8 pledges.
Bid the lot and hopefully it will go for a lot less.
Any surplus can stay in the fund.
Moving forward I will try and add a PayPal donate button to bbcmicro.co.uk which automatically pays Col and delivers tapes directly to him.
Is that OK Col?

Re: MIA Games on eBay

Five pledges.
That's a bid of £25 including postage.
Col, could you bid?
Then each person will need your PayPal address to send you their share.

Set a max bid and we all chip in to Col, who can be the bidder.
How about £5 per person who pledges?

Re: keyboards on PC to play games: Ignored keys with other keys pressed

When I built my arcade controller, it needed one of these: https://www.ultimarc.com/ipac1.html
No ghosting, and really configurable, but over £25 if I remember correctly.

Re: Beebug Magazine supplements/catalogues

Thanks, those would be great, yes. They aren't exactly what I am looking for, but they will do nicely as a checklist for the type-in games :D
The brochures are more like a sales advertisement for the commercial "Beebugsoft" software.
