I remember having a similar problem when ordering the software to get my uni work off an old machine. My first email provider's emails were not getting through when I tried in 2017, but my work address...

I need !65Host to access an old teletext software I use to run whilst at college. We ran it on networked BBC Micros and networked A5000 using !65Host.
Hi, what is the name of the software that you are trying to get working, it isn't Octave is it?

It is too large to upload here, I assume, as I get the error "Failed to move uploaded file." but I have a hi-res version at 48MB and a low-res version at 10MB. I have PM'd you a link.

Re: Econet Micro Guide by Christopher Dawkins

I've not managed to find a copy anywhere to scan.

When I was hunting for other Econet things, I did get a copy of "Networking with the BBC Microcomputer" by R.G.Napier which I have a scan of. It is a little too large to upload here at 9.5MB, even as a web optimised PDF. :-(

I would be interested in a mini archiving meetup;
Wow, that would be very nice, if someday Archimedes LISP could be archived this way! In any case, thank you :D
No worries, I've got a Kryoflux, so certainly happy to help in a new archiving thread for a volunteer session.

With an image of the unix filesystem, does anyone know if any of the current Acorn Risc OS emulators for Mac or Windows would support RISCiX in emulation?

Re: A4000 + Uniboot = error "Expression is a string"

I believe that error is when system variables expand and the line being executed extends beyond 255 characters. Are there lots of files being added, do you have a long drive name, etc?
