I am very thank full to you. I had started computing and programming with this BBC Micro B+ 32K machine in my school during 1994. I am filling nostalgic with this website. Carry on.

Hello :) It seemed like Apple computers used some of this software. I did some work for Bethel Business Machines in South Bend, Indiana. I was actually thrilled with their old computers. There software seems old and yet works. curious about the date and time stamping for older computers and how their software operates on the computer?.

Thank you for such an excellent assortment of magazine scans and downloads - the downloads will complement the BEEBUG magazine collection I recently purchased. Thank you again for all your effort. Websites like yours are invaluable for myself and more importantly future generations! This website should itself be in the Internet archive (in the nicest way possible!!!).

In 1985 I used the BBC computer at school for lessons in programming and doing calculations for chemistry practicum. I used the Comal language from the BBC computer and I liked it very much.
Now, I managed to grab a copy of BeebEm and I installed it and it works like a charm. What a superb BASIC. All the other brands of home computers and even DOS computers bite the dust!
I'm very impressed and I will search for more information.

As anyone can see by visiting http://www.sigord.co.uk/BBC/BBCBASIC.htm for years I have been an ardent collector of old BBC code. Much of this I have converted using BBC Basic for Windows, if it cannot be run by emulators such as http://modelb.bbcmicro.com/

And you're getting contributions again already, just goes to show what a following you'd built up over the years. Don't get sidetracked by recoding it all in PHP - it's great as it is!

I have retained files created in the word processing package that came with the BBC Computer (Model B). I would now like to know if there is a programme which can be run in MS Windows (XP) such that I can again access these files. Can anyone help?
London, UK - Wednesday, December 08, 2004 at 10:49:52 (GMT)
Having accumulated various BBC articles via eBay in the last 8 months, I have once again set up my pride and joy - a BBC Master that I converted to a Master 512, which I have connected to a 6502 second processor. This is now assembled in an area that does not conflict with other activities, e.g. piano playing and normal PC operation.
Tube Elite is fantastic and I am now Elite standard and waiting for the additional hidden secret missions.
I really believe the BBC system with disk operation is fast and was only really for the Schools and the rich in the early 1980's.
I very much like this website. Unbelievably, I have still not used the 512 functions yet, but I will over time!
I now am able to write ssd disks on my pc(laptop running WinXP) and create images from files created on the BBC to the PC(laptop running Win98SE)!
Petersfield, UK - Friday, November 26, 2004 at 22:56:07 (GMT)
Nice, excellent website!
I'm still in possession of the BBC micro model B.
Will not let it go... never!
I still like shoot-them-up games (when I have the time) as these are usually quick and short to play.
Miss my BBC so much though it makes me remember of good days gone by.
'Snooker' was one of my favorites.
Anyway, nice site again!

Thank you for providing me with so many good memories and long forgotten pictures. I really loved the Joe Lavery Amx Art Stuff and all the Acorn User Graphics. I find time and time again the PC's are able to do so much but they don't have that magic quality that the old 8 bits had....there is something timeless about 80's computing.
Thank you ! xxxx

I'm putting together a 8-bit site called AcornSource. The site is still under development (and will continue to be for some time to come due to time sharing problems), but it's already up and running. Among the things which it includes is a history of Acorn Computers Limited - which I also notice has (independantly) been reproduced here at 8-Bit Software! Wow, like yours better though.

Thanks for a great site. I cut my teeth on an Acorn Electron which my parents bought for Christmas in 1982! Browsing your site brought back loads of good memories. I've even been inspired to dig out the old Electron (sadly no longer functional - keyboard connector missing and dodgy power connection) and a BBC Master that I had sitting in my loft.
Keep up the good work :o)

Newcastle, Australia - Tuesday, June 08, 2004 at 06:41:57 (BST)
Brilliant site! There were so many really good programs in the magazines back then. I cannot understand why I haven't seen this site before. (Perhaps the reason is that '8bs' isn't quite as catchy a name as "Stairway to hell" and "The BBC lives!") I don't wish to sound as a commercial but the way I found this site was through it being mentioned in Retrogamer magazine in their recent Acorn feature. (And I think the BBC Micro is also in the Retro section of GamesTM this month - about time too!)
Sweden - Saturday, May 08, 2004 at 12:59:41 (BST)
I didn't have to advertise the "free" Beeb. Andy Birkett spotted it in the Guestbook and now has it. It is working perfectly! Can you "blow" a 32k EPROM for PASCAL? I have two 16k EPROMS with PASCAL but only 1*ZIF Sideways ROM socket(the "ashtray")

ELIZABETH, AUSTRALIA - Tuesday, April 06, 2004 at 01:52:28 (BST)
I have recently decided to take the plunge and buy a BBC Master. I used to use our family BBC B many years back in the 1980's running games such as Elite. Up until recently, I have been running the emulator Beebem and using a special solidisk rom that I downloaded somewhere to play the enhanced version of BBC disk Elite, namely Elite A. This is an amazing game and last week I finally reached Elite standard.
I have only just received the Master(actually have 2!) and am awaiting a data transfer cable by RS423 to write games and applications onto 5.25 inch diskettes using the software XFer. I hope this is a relatively straightforward procress. All I can stress to anyone who wants to buy a BBC kit is to buy some disk software initially. This wait for this lead is unbearable! One can not easily locate such a lead. 5-10 years ago, finding such an item was that much easier. Anyway, I am waiting to play Master Elite and continue with Elite A on the real article.
About this website, I think it is superb. There is a real growing retro climate out there. Let's face it, the BBC system with disk drive is comparitively fast compared to the booting up reqired by the 32 bit and 64 bit machines of today.
Petersfield, UK - Tuesday, March 16, 2004 at 13:21:57 (GMT)
I'm currently creating a new site called AcornSource dedicated towards the now-defunct Acorn / BBC machines series and the software which could be run on them. If anyone is interested in taking a look at the site as it stands at the moment, please give it a shot. We already have in place rather extensive graphic representations of the Acorn series and a nice illustration of the Model 'B' in our history section.
It's going to take a while to finish the site, but when its complete, I hope to have it accepted as part of the Acorn Webring.
Best Wishes - Orlok.

A very valuable resource has been diminished now Chris has stopped trading.
It was a pleasure being able to source spares for the Beeb and recently for
free. Chris you perfomed a great service to all Beeb users and good luck for
any future venture.
Sunbury, UK - Thursday, February 19, 2004 at 09:30:22 (GMT)
It's quite a while since I contacted you, Chris. Happy New Year! Your Website has changed considerably.
I have a complete BBC B system, which was given to me, by a neighbour, who has now left the Province. I would like it to go to a good home and it's free to anyone who is prepared to pay the postage. I will never part with my original Beeb issue 3. I hope to hear from you.

Bedford, UK - Friday, January 16, 2004 at 16:05:56 (GMT)
I am amazed at the generosity of Chris in giving away such precious BBC equipment in such good condition.
Some items were brand new in their original wrappings. The goods I asked for arrived extremely well packaged and showed that a lot of time and thought had been given to the packing. Chris's knowledge is to be marvelled at and is in my opinion the number one Internet site for anything to do with the BBC computer range. The Web site is well organised and the photographic images and descriptions are a world source for research. The whole site is easy to use and well constructed. I can not think of anything good enough to describe my joy at finding this site. Well done and keep it up and running.
southend on sea, UK - Friday, January 09, 2004 at 15:57:09 (GMT)
Great to see a repository of software like this still around. I actually came here because someone mentioned my name was on here (in my mis-spent youth I re-typed some old Disk Users and compiled music lists. Nowadays you'd call ChildLine or something). Anyway, long may your website continue :)

Chris, Thanks to you and your excellent site my Beeb is being kept busy
again after spending a decade in the loft. I would recommend to anyone the
serial link cable available on this site. It's a real joy to download some
of the old software, transfer it from the PC and see it brought back to life
on the original hardware. Keep up the good work!

Awesome website, a fine tribute to the best computers ever.
Now that I'm resurrecting my Beeb this is an invaluable resource for 'total immersion' :)

Hi Chris. After suffering a blown power supply, I thought my BBC would
never boot up again. You were able to help me amazingly quickly. Your advice
about cleaning disk heads was invaluable too! I wouldn't have been able to
recover all my old programs (now safely archived on my PC) without all your

This site is Amazing!
What more can I say?
I used to repair Beebs in the days of old and even owned a repair shop in the town centre.
I miss the old days ... 'sob' !!
If anyone needs any repair tips feel free to check out my web site and go to the home computer section
If you can't find what you're loking for then send me an email.

It's been over 2 years since I last viewed this site - moved house, Beebs up in loft etc etc. Now dug out again. Formely member number E3P - if this still means anything. Still have a few Masters and Beebs working. Nice to see the site is prospering. Andy Young

I couldn't believe that my old Olivetti PC128S (bought 1987) would live
again! I didn't know that it was an Italian clone of the Acorn BBC Master.
Very good work!!

Hi! I would like to introduce myself. My friends call me Raf. I own 2
master 128 micros with ageing 5.25 inch double sided disc drives (1x twin,
and now 1x single only on my other machine). Both machines have MOS+ and
I have one set of ADT and WORWISE+ ROMS. One of my micros is setup with
a hard drive and it has connected an external 6502 co-processor and an internal
DOS+ 512K board as well. The other has a 65C102 internal co-processor. It
is well nigh impossible to get hardware in Australia. I would like to buy
two sets of twin 5.25 inch double sided disc drive units , ready to connect
to the master 128 micros plus some blank diskettes; would also consider
setting up twin 3.5 inch drives. Hope to hear from someone. Regards Raf

Hi Chris Have finally come back to check your site, and download an emulator
and some mags to read through. The site gets better! Have some BBC Mags you
might be interested in, Micro User all issues (I think), A & B Computing a
lot of early issues, Acorn User etc. just rotting in my shed, will try to
make a list and let you have it, or just come and help yourself!

An amazing trip down 'Memory Lane' for me - I was a great fan of the BBC B
when I was growing up in the UK (Until I moved to AUS in 1986). I still have
two of them and drag them out for a play every now and then!

Hi Chris and Family plus 8bs people!
Nice to see the website is thriving Chris and Jess is still being a star with the server. Owl - very good - Keep it up! (Greeting to Usher if he is reading this too).
How are the spiders? Do you have any room in the house nowadays to live with all the BBC stuff and your sons collection? (What doesn't Carol get on her page?)
We are a BBC free household now but I have the emulator at work which confuses people when they want to use my machine when I'm not there. (Dual boot - Windows 98 or Win98 with BBC Emulator!)
Yes - I'm still crazy and at Keele. 8-)

A fantastic site which has brought back all the memories of Electron computing, and made me dig out my damp spider covered Electron from the garage. Thanks for the help replacing the keyboard...
I really want to get a Master 128 now, but I am not sure if I dare to clutter the house with more. ElectrEm and BeebEm are helping to satify the desire, but its just not the same as the real thing!
Keep up the good work.
Liverpool, UK - Thursday, May 30, 2002 at 00:21:13 (BST)
Thanks for bringing back the good memories. Thanks to this site, I've been playing around with beebem for a while - it's good - but my MS keyboard does not have the classic vintage feeling of my good ol' beeb...
Guess I could change my window$ starting tune to the beeb startup beep :-)

Yesterday I was happy to find a Electron on an open market (my dream machine in the 80's, but I didn't have the money at that time).

Just bought an Xploder GB. Thought since I'd invested in TWO
Gameboy advance consoles and all the trimmings, I may as well explore the inner workings of how the games actually work. Problem is it will probably take me WEEKS to figure out whats going on inside the console, since "MEMORY MAPS" and "SPRITES" and so on are a foreign language to me (thought "SPRITE" was a fizzy drink, [DOH!!]). Any news of when Gameboy ADVANCE XPLODER IS RELEASED??. E-mail me if poss. Regards. MF. PS, Damn good show on the 8bs site side of things, E*X*C*E*L*L*E*N*T*!*!. Any other interesting Gameboy stuff/sites would be appreciated, esp. Techy stuff (electronic workings etc)

You built a very nice site.
Since a long time I didn't do anything with my beeb. But I never thought of doing it away -my first love!!!
The reason to look on internet for BBC-things was that I longed to play the fabulous Hopper-game again (my tape-version is broken).
So with Altavista I arrived at an enormous number of BBC-sites.
This is one of the most elaborate I believe. It inspires methat so many people still spend time on their beloved,

The best place to get free BBCs seems to be primary schools. My old school has two B's and Master 128, which don't work. I'm still hagglimg the principal to let me have the kaput Master and the HUGE software collection, but she tends to ignore my pleas. What she doesn't know is that they all only need new battery packs...
N. Ireland, UK - Wednesday, August 29, 2001 at 18:59:00 (BST)
This is a wonderful site! I made a conscious decision to bring in our Master 128 from the garage about a week ago, it was our only computer till five years ago and it was the first we ever had. I was 2 years old in 1986 and have loved these machines all my life. Good work Chris, and thanks for all your help with the battery and the disk drive, you'll be hearing from me again! By the way, do you think the average PC will last 15 years???

Hope to have some programs for you in the future (as soon as I find my SHIVA BBC Assembly Language book! :-) ) A good sign of the quality of a computer is the number of people who still want one 20 years later!

I'm very impressed with this site. In fact, I'm so impressed that I come here a lot in order to 'raid' the public domain for whatever takes my fancy. I hope that everyone enjoyed the scanned manuals for UIM, Cholo, and the classic BBC Elite which I placed at "The BBC Lives!" -- more material is to follow as soon as I find it!

Cool site, BUT...I have a bbc B, and am stuck on a screen which says- "BBC Computer 32K Language?". Can anyone help? Please.

I use single board 6502 systems to teach students about 8bit microprocessors. In addition I have some BBC B machines. Do you have any examples of project to interface to the BBC/6502 either for data acquisition or control. Additionally to you have an EPROM list available.

Hi Chris, been a regular visitor to your site for a while. Just
downloaded 512-49 needed some software to test my system. Just got new setup to
replace large amount of equipment lost in house fire. Keep up the good work!

Excellent site, well maintained and constantly improved. This is one of the
best sites I have seen - it is a pleasure using it. Keep up the good work Chris
UK - Thursday, January 18, 2001 at 14:01:31 (GMT)
This is without doubt, not one of the best, but THE best site on the web for the
Beeb. a very well designed page and MOUNTAINS of downloads, Keep up the good work.

Cambridge, UK - Tuesday, January 09, 2001 at 16:07:37 (GMT)
I recently recieved a free BBC B from my old school ( primary ) and have always
liked these computers. One thing I've always liked since the infants is how they
beep and the screen flashes when you switch them on.
Thirsk, UK - Sunday, January 07, 2001 at 06:41:40 (GMT)
Hello Chris, Great site, thanks for all the help you've given me. Nice to see

Keep up the good work.

Brilliant! Just what i've been looking for. Like yourself I hated the PC when
I first got it, but now accept it for what it is, just a tool. The BBC and Master
are still my favourites, especially when it comes to interfacing, after all it's
what it was made for. Keep up the good work.
Nottingham, UK - Sunday, November 26, 2000 at 12:07:56 (GMT)
Lovely site :) Still miss my beeb, but it's heartening that sites like yours are
around. Those were the days...

An absolutely storming website, It's so good to see that the BBC still lives in
so many people despite the invention of the PC. Carry on !

bits and pieces. Keep up the good work.

Chris, I am very impressed with your web site, as you've probably guessed, I

send another keen BBCer some of the info from your site, he will be equally
impressed. Best of luck in the future Steve

Chris, Thanks for putting the advert on I have had a couple of enquires so far.
Can you keep it on for a second week, I will let you know what has been sold,
so you can remove them. About the demise of Acorn etc. Schools evening in the
DES statistic report of 1992 said that ratio of pupils to micro was still far
to low. Acorn's marketing policy was useless. The school where I used to work
(Idependent) bought 15 Beebs to network, and 3 for the Science Dept. We had a
head of computer Science. While Apple were introduced for CAD, and later Archimedes,
and extra Teaching staff. I have just found out that they have gone to PC. Besides
teaching staff, They have a Computer Manager, and 2 technician/trainers just to
keep everything working, they have a lot more PC. I do not know how state schools
could find that sort of money, so If the new marketing from dealers etc can get
the market together could ther be a future for Beebs All the best Lorna
Cool site dude. Really great to see so much info and parts for sale on the net
for such a great machine as the BBC is. I have 4 BBC model B's myself with drives
and monitors and I love playing around on the old games and adventures. It is
people like you that let us keep fresh in our minds all the great times we used
to have in the early eighties, playing on the BBC. Keep up the great work, if
this web site goes down, then we have all lost something special. Best wishes.

14 years ago I bought BBCBASIC(86) and did some programming for use in the factory
I work with. Then Bill Gates took over. Now I started again to program some things
in BBCBASIC and learned that I've forgotten a lot of things. Just curious I typed
in BBCBASIC in a search engine on the web and was surprised how many people are
still working with BBCBASIC and that BBCBASIC(86) is still available. I downloaded
some programs and will look in the listings to find out some programming tips
& tricks of the old days. Maybe you can give me some addresses with programming
tips & tricks this would be welcome. Keep up the good work. p.s. My home page
has nothing to do with BBCBASIC its simply another hobby of mine, Royal Enfield
motorcycles. Hans Taverne

Just getting into the BBC emulation thing. Have heard that it's possible to transfer
Beeb 5.25 floppies on a PC. Is this true? I have almost every game available (deprotected)
sitting in a box under the stairs. Any help would be appreciated.
London, 2000-Mar-23 03:12:00
I spent many endless hours playing and programming my trusty old BBC, and it's
nice to know there are still lots out there with fond memories of it too! Incidentally,
if anyone knows where to get The Ferryman Awaits, Quest For The Holy Grail, or
The Quill please let me know.

Hello,Chris, Long time no hear. You may remember supplying me with a keyboard
for my BBC Master. I was damned lucky to get it, since the old one had a duff
key. Anyway, the BBC Master in question was sent to me by my brother as a present
last summer. He'd "decommissioned" it some years ago in his business.
I'm anxious to find out what type it is, but have only the serial number to go
on, which reads: 01-AMB15-0090511 Is there any chance you could identify the machine
from this number? I'd be very grateful if you could. By the way, I'm writing a
Tutor for BBC BASIC for the PC, and Richard Russell is posting it on his website.It's
called "Practical BBC BASIC for the PC" and I'd be grateful for any
comments/criticisms. Regards, Edmund
Hi Chris, I've downloaded some really cool stuff, thanks. The welcome disks are
very useful and the 8bs disks are excellent. Thanks for keeping the BBC alive!

Superb! a sudden attack of BBC nostalgia struck me the other day as the theme
tune to frak! suddenly entered my head!! I just had to play the old classics again,
and am much happier for having done so :) Time to get up into the attic and dust
off the beige box. keep up the good work on this site, cheers!

I'd like to wish you and yours a Happy, Healthy and prosperous New Year Regards

Boy oh boy! What a site! And in the UK! Finally a top notch site that just so
happens to be about a top notch computer. I will be coming here again (and many
times more) I liked the spitfire. The telescope projection of the eclipse was
the method I should have used, instead of the one where you burn an image into
your eye for good.

basis. This is a well written, well constructed site
London, 1999-Dec-18 23:29:50
I LIKE THE VARIETY OF THINGS TO CHOOSE FROM.
Brilliant site!! Rekindled my interest in the machine in the corner of my attic.
And it fired up instantly with no noisy fan. Having used Beebs in school and owning
a master with Viglin lid I thought I knew a lot but this site has opened my eyes.
There are still schools in Northumberland using BBCs. I'm keen to try preserving
some of the software on PC for posterity but worried about infringing copyright.
This is a sensitive issue for this county after a music infringement. Advice sought
Best 8 bit site I've ever seen! Love the rotating images

Hi, it's really wonderful to see that there are still people dedicated to the
Beeb and actively supporting it. I've had a BBC Model B since 1984 (one of the
few in Belgium) and I've used (mainly programming and "exploring", I
am a software engineer by profession) it until about five years ago. Since then
it's been in the cellar of my successive homes, although I've always continued
searching for / buying hardware, software and documentation for it. I plan to
unpack it in a few months' time, when I'll (hopefully) have finished refurbishing
the house. I hope to become more actively involved in the BBC "scene"
then. Yours sincerely SdW

I liked the look of your site very much and was very pleased to find a source
of spares for BBC machines especially as the power supply has just gone down on
Montrose, UK, 1999-Nov-17 23:18:42
Aaah, nice to see someone appreciates what a fine piece of work the BBC range
was (is). I've actually still got mine, though it's been relegated to the loft
because the damn thing started giving me electric shocks. Plus the lithium battery
ran out after all these years, which means configuring it every time I want to
use it! Anyway, it's still useful for playing my favourites, such as Citadel and
Stryker's Run among others, which beat a lot of today's games hands down in my
opinion. Keep up the good work, and keep the BBC alive!
UK, 1999-Nov-15 23:02:30
I now have a Tiny PC as well as a BBC and 512 Master. I am busily transferring

8-Bit Club Member K3J, 1999-Nov-11 20:35:37
What a nice resource. I shall be back as I am trying to revive the bbc b that's
sitting in the spare room. I am hoping that my grandchildren may find some fun
with it. Aside from the bbc I nurse an old mac along but for work have to use
the pc, having transfered from the arc. I design the web site where I work; one
day I'll get my own pages up. Keith
Good to see that the BBC lives on - I can see what a lot of effort has been put
into the 8bs site & resources - well done! As a former B user I feel it is
all worthwhile, and will attempt to get a B emulator running on my PC. Keep up
the good work - it's part of our history. Philip

Good site. I have very little software for an old BBC I have acquired so this
is a very useful collection. Cheers.
Cardiff, Wales, 1999-Oct-29 12:55:08
Hiya, I've just had a little browse through you site, Great stuff! I am also a
BBC user, and I'm trying to collect together just about anything useful to me,
as well as some rarities (eg Laserdisc player). I am keen on the idea of using
Beeb's with modern pieces of equipment ie. modems, cd roms, large hard drives,
and also to connect with bulletin boards (If any exist!) with a BBC. I currently
have a growing collection of kit, such as BBC B, 2 masters (1 with 512 186 board
fitted), an EPROM programmer, An Electron, A double 5 1/4" disk drive whish
sits over the top of the master and looks lovely, loads of ROMS, a ROM expansion
board, tons of manuals,and a drawerful of original games on cassettes which I
could never hope to play all of them as I would be on for weeks loading them in!
Is 8BS for members only? How do I join? Is there a printed magazine? Or software
on disc? Feel free to E-mail me anytime on Shaun@Toppop.freeserve.co.uk Looking
forward hearing from you! Shaun Marsh

Hello there, I'm trying to source a copy of Thrust for my flatmate who is into

all my software but my loft is a challenge that has beaten my so far. Any advice
or solution would be more than appreciated, James
London, 1999-Sep-01 11:58:57
Its wonderful to find that there are others out there that still have an interest
in BBCs. I still have my Atom, BBC B, Archimedes and associated hardware, let
alone the 200+ disks of software, Rom images, utilities etc. I now work with PCs
all day and seriously miss the good old BBC. Keep up the good work. All the best,
Egham, Surrey, 1999-Aug-23 16:07:42
You took a bit of finding again. You have worked fast with getting the items on
the site. I managed to fix Doom. Somehow it had all by itself altered its screen
resolution in advanced settings. You see, these bloody thing ARE alive. It was
nice to see you again. Keep up the good work for the dear old BBC.

After being a fan of the BBC B throughout the 80`s, I was extreamly impressed
to find that followers of the 8 bits still exist. Although I no longer have my
BBC, I remember it fondly and spent many an hour messing about with it. Your superb
web site has brought back many fond memories and as a result I am know seriously
considering buying another to `hobby` about with. An altogher great web page.
Keep up the good work as there must still be many of us `oldies` left out there
that will always remember the 8 bits as the best there ever was!

Nice site. Especially like the marketplace/buying and selling bits. I have just
got hold of a mint condition (original packaging, etc.) Electron, but need a power
supply for it. How can I get one? Are there any good alternatives to the official
one? In fact, are there any sources for Electron-ica anywhere? All I can really
find is footnotes about it on BBC pages and I would like more.
Reading, Uk, 1999-Jul-24 11:39:44
Sorting out some old, unused hardware at school and found the BBC, very sentimental
about this, we both go back a long way! searched the internet for help on connecting
a monitor to it and found this website. Fantastic, I can now get the BBC up and
running to show the children control and a bit of history !
London, 1999-Jul-21 11:18:02
Well, I don't know. It all started a few weeks ago, playing around with MAME and
the emulators of the old Arcades. Now, I've got round to hunting down BBC Basic
and odd associated bits 'n' pieces and I find this amazing active group of people
driving on with all those things that started the home computing revolution. It's

This is a top web site. Lots of retro stuff. Great scans Chris.

Great Site! There's so much nostelgia here it makes we wish I'd never sold my
BBC all those years ago. Hopefully I'll be able to get my BBC Emulator (BeebIt
for RISC OS) as close as possible to the real thing. The information on these
pages have helped a lot. Thanks.

Great site! I'm inspired to dig around in my basement & find that old Atom
and Model B. Hope my joystick (specially modified for Elite) is still where I
left it 15 yrs ago. Cheers, Derek.

Dear Chris, I was so sorry that you stopped the magazine, but fully understand
why. After that I realised that I had to get into the PC world, but I still have
my Master set up, just in case! These things are very unfriendly. I have a lot
of Wordwise texts on 5.25 disks, how can I read them on this machine? Perhaps
I could pop over for a chat, making sure that I have a full tank of petrol, first!!
Best wishes to you and your family. Peter

Dear Chris, Quite a few things have changed on your web site since i last looked
at it! Sam:-)

A very good idea! I hope this will be the site with the most (PD)-BBC-software.

my bbc b computer(bought in 1984) has long been idle because of the PSU unit failure
(capacitor punctured!!)and also the ULA got hit may be static discharged. it's
nice to find a column as this. Thanks a lot and maybe I could turn on the ignition
of the good old bbc computer again.

What a great web site. Congratulations Mr Richardson. A fantastic effort - and
