ADVANCED DISC BACKUP=
A "desktop" style backup utility (for
personal use only). Just input the
Source and Destination drives and the
Start and Finish tracks. e.g. 0,1,0,79
will backup an 80 track disc from drive
0 to 1. Works on Model B, unsure about
VDU CODES KILLER=
Will get rid of all those tiresome VDU
19 codes that often prevent a disc from
being catalogued. Just run the program
which will install the routine. Will
remain until BREAK is pressed.
TAPE TO DFS/ADFS UTILITIES=
Will transfer files from cassette to a
DFS or ADFS disc with ease. Program will
also transfer "Locked" cassette files.
TEST CARDS PROGRAM=
A useful and excellently presented
utility to help all those people with
GCSE examinations or tests pending.
Program will organise and store "test
cards" to aid your learning. Full
instructions provided within the
SWRLOAD AND NOTEPAD ROM=
I think this program should only work
with MASTER machines as it does not
appear to work with my Model B. *
Basically it is a program to organise
and load all your Sideways ROM/RAM utils
A ROM image is provided-R.Notepad, which
also doesn't work on a Model B with 16k
Sideways RAM. Somebody please try it on
a Master and tell me what it does.
SPEECH! FIDDLE PROGRAM=
A program that adds a few extra
utilities to your Speech! program.
LOST YOUR MARBLES=
This is an excellent game which easily
qualifies for magazine standard if not
beyond. The program was in fact rejected
by Micro User due to lack of space (I
think) so the author kindly turned it
over to P.D. Another program is due next
If you run a bulletin board, P.D library
or just want to create your own personal
letterhead then this is for you. A very
easy to use and understand letterhead
designer. Full instructions provided in
the help files on the menu.
SYSTEMS HARDCOPY UTILITY=
The SYSTEMS fileserver lacks the option
to send data to the printer at present,
but this will be rectified for version
6's launch. Meanwhile, C.J.Richardson
has written this little utility to keep
users happy. The program provides some
useful search and print utilities. *
Manuals are supplied as ASCII files that
can be viewed from the HELP FILES menu
on the disc.
FAULTS GRAPHICS PROGRAM=
Not too sure what this is supposed to do
as there is no documentation. I have
been able to get some graphics out of it
INCA TREASURE ADVENTURE=
All that can be said is that it's an
adventure. More like this are avaliable
on TBI04(See News).
CITY BOMBER GAME=
Good version of an old classic. One of
the first (similar) games that I ever *
typed in on the Beeb.
Also on this disc is some bonus software
(which is listed on the first menu after
booting). Most of this software is
accompanied by manuals which are
avaliable from the HELP FILES menu.
This is a spelling checker for VIEW and
WORDWISE files. The program is of high
quality and is very easy to use. Just
use Ch."SPELL" on side 2 or *EXEC !BOOT
after a *DR.2 command.
It acts as an on-line programmers help*
manual. Full manuals to it are supplied
which can be found from the HELP FILES
Graphical demonstration- More scheduled
for issue 10/11.

copying fees per disc, or free if you
send in some of your own to-
