Firstly, I'd like to thank all those who have written to me concerning my current projects and BBC Software in general. If you have not received a reply from me yet! Don't worry, most of the correspondence received is only now being processed. This is because the group has been closed for some time due to a major lack of contributions, although the contributons that have been received are of a splendid quality! it has not been possible to produce the intended monthly magazine. (see BDUG news letter on £3)
I intend to release another addition to the few BeeB Developments discs as soon as possible. I Plea to each and every 8-Bit Software Member to donate at least I item of Public Domain software to the BDUG. Please read on for more info... If you have not yet done so, I urge eveyone to join the Beeb Developments User Group. As if a reasonable resurrection of the group is to succeed, we need EVERYONE to support the group. If you feel that you can help in any way please send donations to the address below and REMEMBER!! From now
on anyone who sends a program that
gets submitted to the disc will have
their copying fee returned. (this arrangement is an ammendment to the BeeB Developments current Terms and Conditions)
25p for existing BDUG
Please send a 5.25" formatted 40 or 80
track DFS disc, your fee, and a return
Stamped Adressed Envelope. to the address below. Please note if you are sending a contribution you must include your copying fee. If your contribution is used your fee will be returned. Mr A G Nelson Beeb Developments Issue 4
