Re: Educational Archive online

AVP Hydrology and Statistics has been archived and is now on the educational archive website. :D

Thanks to alcresearch for the package. =D> =D>

Re: Educational Archive online

Yes please. You still at the same address John? If so I'll get it in the post. Although I was watching BBC4 last night and saw a programme about the crags, so I might venture over on Saturday and push it through your letterbox! Thanks very much. Sorry I was out and missed you but was at my daughter...

Re: Educational Archive online

Love that story! :lol: A similar thing happened to me. I was at a LEA teacher's meeting, 1987 I think it was, and a disk of software for Archimedes computers was given to all attendees along with a booklet describing all the software on the disk. One look was enough to show that most of the software...

After several years of resisting the impulse I have finally decided to post the Educational Software Archive to the world wide web. The site is still in its infancy and is still evolving. I am steadily working through the archive and publishing the titles I have online. At the moment there are about...

I can do the Achimedes discs (provided they're not copy protected), I'm sure someone else will have a 5.25 drive for the master discs too. Plus the museum has a kyroflux for the really tricky things.
Ditto. :D

I shall also have a 5.25" Master setup plus Datacentre with me.

Re: Restoring an Issue 2 Model B to Original State

That is a clean looking issue 2. :D The ROM board can be completely removed it only has those soldered jumper leads. The best way would be to completely unplug the board and jumper leads then to place new bridging links on S20, etc. S21 should have two links both E-W. S22 should be N-S on the top tw...

Re: Which killer app made you buy a BBC?

I remember being very impressed by the operating system - even from what I could see in my friend's User Guide, it was well-organised. A world away from machines where you have to learn lots of peeks and pokes. Of course it had graphics and sound too, which you can't quite say for the UK101 I was u...
