Archive of printed material?

Postby jonno » Sun Aug 21, 2016 8:02 am

Hi all,

Is there a definitive archive of printed material relating to the Atom (and Beeb)?

I have a few bits here,

Race Track is not on the Atom Archive if I' m not mistaking. Can you scan the listing to be typed in?
I'm still on Holiday with my laptop so what's nicer then typing in a listing in the sun with a cold glas of beer ........ hot coffee I mean ...... ;)

Greetings
Kees

It is in the archive, but it's just called RACE, by Ann Clark. It's very good!

I asume you mean coffee :lol:

There is a lot of printed information on acornatom.nl. We can always add missing materials. I'd love to rebuild that site in a way that it is responsieve, files in AtoMMC format and lot of other improvements but I don't have the time for that.

This may be the original Atom Advert mentioned by the OP.
I found it in a pile of 'Computing Today' magazine remnants:-
Acorn Atom Advert (CT).jpg

The next two pages were the CT Computing Glossary:-
CT Computing Glossary (Approx. 1980).pdf
(4.94 MiB) Downloaded 6 times

Then finally the Tangerine MicroTan65 advert:-

Hope this is useful,

I can't help feeling it's a bit of a stretch to advertise the manual being A4 as a feature...
