Prestel

Post by BitSeeker » Sat Mar 31, 2018 5:22 pm

I was just wondering whether anything remains of the old Prestel (or was it Micronet 800) archive of BBC Micro programs? There were lots of programs and games for BBC Micro on there. Are the files hosted anywhere now, or is it forever consigned to the dustbin of history?

Give it time - someone will be along with something, surely.

Ach, so much is lost, even from the Internet Age.

If you find any,I would be very happy to host them on the Telstar Telesoftware service. It would be great to see some original content up there.

If you've not heard of Telstar, it's Prestel like service written in 2018. Details are at https://glasstty.com.com or search this forum.

Hi,

Rob has a few sets of frames over at https://www.viewdata.org.uk which you should be able to recover files from.

Cheers
