Re: Educational Archive not in STH

After a long weekend examining and archiving the haul of floppy discs I obtained at the WROCC Show 2018 I have managed to complete the archive of Sherston: Typesetter!

My notes show that I started this title back in 2014. I was missing the FONTS and USER discs and so the title remained until the WROCC Show. There were two sets of Typesetter! discs. Both were copies but worked and contained all the necessary files AND they were de-protected.

Attached is the software and documentation. Enjoy. :D

Why do I keep collecting Acorn gear? I'm going to need a considerably bigger man-cave. :?

Sherston: Invisible Ink

This is one of several titles for which I had the documentation but not the software.

Thanks to billcarr2005, who had the software, here is the compete package including documentation.

MARDIS Olympics (for MicroMike)

Post by OneSwitch » Fri Jul 13, 2018 5:18 pm

Huge thanks to Colin McDougall and BillCarr. Here's the MARDIS Olympics game for the MicroMike.

This video shows it in use with my slightly annoying whistling. You can make any sound at all though. https://youtu.be/cpTcKibdces

I'm using it with the Desktop Micromike. I'm not sure when this was released, as it wasn't until it turned up on eBay that I was made aware of it. I'm guessing late 80's and more likely very early 90s looking at the high quality of it. If anyone has any more details I'd be really interested.

For the moment you can see more on the MicroMike at the BBC's Computer Literacy Project archive: (4 year old Christopher using it in 1985): https://computer-literacy-project.pilot ... cc96a0b361 and a bit on how it was invented: https://computer-literacy-project.pilot ... aa5db9d77b
