Steve Inglis has been busy once again, this time with the View Printer Driver Generator Manual in pdf format.

John Simpson sent me his unofficial Electron Advanced User Guide "issue 2" where he has added numerous details himself and from other sources. Both in textual and pdf formats.

New look for BBCdocs.com PDF Print E-mail

Welcome along to BBCdocs.com - a new look with all your favourite old content.

As announced previously, BBCdocs.com has a new host which has enabled new possibilities. The first of which is migrating the existing content to the CMS system.

From here the next stages are to re-organise the content a little, splitting up the tables and creating individual "objects" for each hardware / software / document item. These can then have multiple files associated with them. e.g. there are different versions of the Acorn View manual, as well as having other items associated with it like a ROM, disk images, versions, function key strip etc.

This will enable finding the associated items much simpler and also cross referencing between sections and categories will also be possible. That's the plan at least!

BBCdocs.com has now moved to a new webhosting facility which has enabled a massive update to the filebase. Please make sure your bookmarks are to www.bbcdocs.com and not to the old ...at/etc URLs. I have sorted out everything that I have been sent, and made sure that all files are now included. This has taken the filebase up to around 2GB from 512MB. It will also be much easier to update in the future. Have added the old 8BS collection directly to the filebase here as when it went offline the files were nowhere else. Also some links have disappeared and others changed so I have updated all of those where possible.

That is the start of the changes, there are more planned. Any suggestions/contributions to myself at the usual This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
