If anyone has the 3rd of June 1982 (page 7) Personal Computer World, I'd love a scan of it for a book I'm writing.

I believe this is the cover for that magazine:

Popular Computing Weekly as per the picture as opposed to Personal Computer World as per the text?
The article about Sunbury on Thames Computer Club? If so, I don't have it to scan, but it's online here:

Popular Computing Weekly, and page 6. I was having a nightmare. Thank you. :)

That's the exact thing, but I'm after a high-quality scan of the Llamasoft advert on page 6, ideally.

Hi
Does anyone have any issues of "What Micro" magazine?
If so, does it mention the "volume" and "issue number" anywhere inside the cover?

Thanks

Lee

Do we have any budget for these 3 MIA "Games Computing" magazines?

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre ... 3002810427

Look at others seller's other items. She has 3 issues. All missing from the archives.
These are quite rare, although the is another eBay listing for some issues, that the seller has started at £50 :roll:

**EDIT... bought and scanned 8)

Hi
Does anyone have the scan of Games Computing magazine from January 1985 that was, until recently, available on Acorn Electron World but now seems to have disappeared...

I echo that. It is needed for my on-line archive. June, July and December 1984 and February 1985 are also missing, if anyone has them. [-o<

I'll put that Games Computing that I scanned over 20 years ago onto www.everygamegoing.com. There'll be a new release on Saturday so after that you should be able to browse by magazine and find it again.

There was also an ASP mag called Electronics Today that had a number of projects for the Elk in it. I had scanned that too but that's also dropped off the new version of the AEW site. I'll add that to everygamegoing.com as well.
