8BIT is a pan-8 bit computer magazine, so the Amstrad babies share coverage with other 8 device to get a free copy of WACCI from John Bowley, marking the letter "Brian says I can have a free copy.". Maybe the reply from WACCI will be "Herewith your free copy. We will bill Brian later for the total postage."
Nice to see the commands omitted from the CPC 464, I thought that was what such programs as 6128EMU were created for. Run it and the 464 becomes a 6128 by usage of added RSXs. Try the PD program RSXLIB out for size, configure the RSXs you'll need and combine them into an executablit machines. What is there this month to look at that is relevant?
A stupendous announcement that " at least 20,000 pieces of 8 bit tape software " are now looking for a home. Tantalisingly the details will be in the next 8BIT, Jaunuary to March 1998. A modicum of forethought might have induced realisation that NOW would have been better than THEN with Christmas coming up.
Look, there IS NOT, a 3.5" DSDD disc shortage. How many more times does it need to be stated? Do we have to provide hearine .BIN file loadable into the unfriendly programs loader.
On a personal point, I thought that devoting five pages on " WRITING FOR MONEY " more suitable for a literary periodical than computer orientated publication. It was of little interest and, with a number of articles awaiting publication, the pages could have been better used for the paying, computer using readership, all 770 odd of them. True, the Editor has total control on content, yet I'd venture to enquire whether this article would hin OTTO 3.
A little mistake thinking BTL was anti-WACCI. BTL was anti-DWERRYHOUSE. When he took them on his end was inevitable. While WACCI would kotow, BTL would draw the pen and put the pocket Hitler to flight.
There wasn't a distinct educational side to OTTO. The "serious" articles wereave been reproduced IF it had been on submitted to the Editor for consideration? I doubt it.
