Re: Wave-Designer

Very nice! I'm really looking forward to trying my Music 500 on the Electron when the new AP5's come out; I wonder if I could get this to play with that?

Re: Electron & other Acorn ASCII

Alas, no. I only discovered ASCII art when reading "help" files and such like on my Atari STFM (maybe on some PD disks). Then later on when I had a IBM compatable PC I found more as I discovered the Internet. Of course, looking back now, the computer network (based on 300 and 1200 baud RS232 and mo...

Electron & other Acorn ASCII

Dear all!

Do you have any piccies of any text art you've done on your Elks (or any other Acorn or even another 8-bit)?

I've started a new page on my site and it would be nice if folks sent in some piccies!

Yep Pablo, I know what you mean! I did a short animation in Deluxe Paint III on my Amiga recently and it took me hours!

I'm glad you're progressing though; I can't wait for the finished article :-)
