What I can make out of the Space Trader code is that it seems to owe more than a bit to PCC's Star Trader

Thanks for the new scans Johan.
November 1982 has now been uploaded by lurkio.
I am sure he will insert those missing pages as soon as possible.

Hi to all, just wondered if there had been any progress made on the PCW magazine uploads? It's been a while since there's been an update.
Also, I just wondered if anyone could provide a list of early 1980s UK computer magazines (1981 to 1982, maybe also 1983) - I'd like to have a browse through them. Apart from the Acorn ones, Your Computer, Personal Computer News and Personal Computer World are ones that spring to mind. I know archive.org has scans - are there any other places on the web from where I can download scans?
EDIT: Just to be clear, I'm after all magazine titles, whether they have Acorn related content or not.

I believe I've uploaded all the scans I was sent.

On everygamegoing, do a search on personal computer world.

The scans are in a format like this:

I could only scan the issues of the magazine I personally had. If someone directs me to somewhere where the rest of them are (or is willing to send me other issues in the post) I am happy to scan them and add them to my site.

All PCW from issue 1 to the December 1985 issue were uploaded by lurkio with the exception of July 1983 which was missing.

If anyone has any 1986 or 1987 issues it would be good to grab the listings from them, and maybe look at getting them on archive.org

Brilliant work! Some superb preservation there.

On the off-chance, does anyone have any 1977 copies of Computer Weekly?

I'm looking for a quality scan of the section on MAVIS from the 15th September 1977? Volume 23 No. 567.

The one at the Internet Archive is bad fax quality: https://archive.org/details/ComputerWee ... 9/mode/2up

Any pointers appreciated.
