Hi,
There are a few issues of "Popular Computing Weekly" missing from archive.org
Does anyone have volume 5, issues 34 35 36 48 or 50?
(21st August, 28th August, 4th September, 27th November and 11th December 1986).
Or volume 6 issues 1 to 6 (January and February 1987)
Or, volume 6 issue 19 (15th May 1987)

Hi,
Does anyone here volunteer an the museum for Computing History?
I nees some decent photos of Popular Computing Weekly volume 4 issue 18 - May 2nd to 8th 1985
Specifically - page 18 "Horse of the year". The archive.org scan is poor and I am having difficulty sorting the listing.
pcw1.jpg
Popular Computing Weekly 4.ssd
(200 KiB) Downloaded 43 times
- file HORSE
**The game basically works, but "Player 1" and "Player 2" are getting confused somewhere.
The listing uses the variables p% pl% and maybe p1% which may be the cause of the confusion?

The reference number is CH28789

Thank you,

Lee.
EDIT: After receiving a better quality scan, I have now fixed this game.

Thanks John,
We actually had all the games but it is nice to see the magazine.
I will have a quick read through the 3 games and check ours are bug-free when time permits.
Only 2 issues to go now!

Does anyone have "Computing Today" magazine from September 1985?
The computing history museum has a copy: http://www.computinghistory.org.uk/det/ ... mber-1985/
I am wanting a scan of the "Cribbage" article.
I have part 1 from July, and part 2 from August and I assume the September issue holds the final part.
Thank you,

Lee.

Not sure if they're still needed, but since this thread was first thing that popped up when I googled the magazine... Figured I'd mention that I've uploaded July 1984 and March 1985 issues of Personal Computing Today to the Internet Archive, in case anyone needs them. Those were the only issues I had, so there's still quite a few unscanned.
