Where's the archive?

Postby ears » Wed Feb 05, 2014 2:54 pm

OK I'm sorry, I guess this is a really stupid question.

I thought I was being clever - I was remembering a couple of old bits of educational software I used to play on a BBC B at junior school so searched the site for one. I found some results - someone had asked the same question before and it was answered.

The answer was 'search the archive' - which I think means it might be there. Trouble is - I can't find the archive! There's a forum with an archive submissions theme - I've searched that and can't find what I'm looking for, but I suspect that's not the real archive.

I'm sorry - I realise I'm missing something obvious - but where's the archive?!

The archive is the Stairway to Hell archive at http://www.stairwaytohell.com/

There is also a thread dealing with educational software not in that archive here: http://www.stardot.org.uk/forums/viewto ... f=2&t=7190

Hope this helps.

Oh thank you. Now have them both. Suburban Fox and Teashop. Suburban Fox was possibliy my first ever experience with a computer. The first I remember anyway. My junior school had 1 BBC B, on a trolley, and it would get wheeled into different classes on different days.

I think I discovered Teashop later. By that time I had a ZX Spectrum. I didn't have a Beeb but desperately wanted to play more Teashop. Some clever kid in our school who had a Beeb and a Speccy rewrote Teashop on the Speccy for us.

In later years he wrote chat programs for the BBC and Arc that ran over the Econet network. We all used to chat to each other from different rooms across the school. He was way ahead of his time - this was 1988!
