I am still working on which particular issue. In the meantime there has still been no article on sound samples written for 8-bit Software-doesn't anybody know about them?(8CT) * A useful hint to all those old Acorn Teletext Adaptors biting the dust- if you postition them behind your Beeb with the back facing you- they make a good stand for these long disc drive cases that are around nowadays. If you have an empty adapter box, then they make great places to store the miles of cable trailing from your beeb.(8CT) *

The program will enable you to buy shares and unit trusts etc. using this live information. Watch this space for further developments. An older version of SYSTEM shares is avaliable now to the members with the following bits- BBC-B Issue 3 or Higher BASIC 2 or higher Twin Double-sided 80T drives Acorn Adaptor with ATS Acorn TUBE *
