Public Domain programs on the disc this
month are as follows, just select the
appropriate option from the menu. There
are also a few lengthy magazine reviews
on the disc (in ASCII format) as it
would have been impractical to put them

digitised pictures and routines over the
past few months. Programs are as

Of the programs this month, Pontoon, Red
Dwarf, Year Planner, and the Repton
screens are the work of 8-bit members.
The rest were either transferred from
other P.D. libraries, or submitted by
non-members. PLEASE SEND IN YOUR
SOFTWARE as I have little of 8-bit
members work for next month, and it
would be nice to feature YOUR work than
that of other P.D. organisations.
