If you send £2, and no disk, I will supply the disk. This includes postage. These disks will fit on one or two sides of an 80 track DFS disk. More than one will fit on HADFS/ADFS disks, up to the total size of the disk. Make sure that you supply your name and address. So, as an example, you could get disks 3 and 4 onto a single double-sided 80 track DFS disk. Using HADFS 400k disks, you could also get disk 16 on as well making a total of 395k. Using ADFS 640k disks, you could get disks 1, 3, 4, 16 and 19 making a total of 545k. Always mark your disks, especially if you can only use one side, or only have a 40 track drive. If disks are unmarked, I will assume them to be 80 track double sided. The disk formats that I can handle are: 5.25 inch: DFS 40/80 ADFS 640k HADFS 200k/400k 3.5 inch: DFS 40/80 ADFS 640k HADFS 200k/400k 3 inch: DFS 40 HADFS 100k Please label your disks, eg "DFS 40 track" or "HADFS 400k" and put your name on them. I cannot as yet supply 3 inch disks. Your name and address will be added to a database for the sole purpose of maintaining this library. I will not release this address list to any third party. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ************ EPROM programming service ************* As I have an EPROM programmer, I can offer an EPROM programming service. Send a disk with the rom image on it and an EPROM and I will program it. Alternatively, I can supply the EPROMs. The costs for these are: Programming: 50p plus 50p for each EPROM Supply of EPROMS: £4.00 each So, if you send a disk with an image on, and want four roms with it on, that is 50p + 4*50p + 4*£4.00 = £18.50. If you supply the four roms, it is 50p + 4*50p = £2.50. Roms I can program are: 2764 8k 27128 16k 27256 32k A handy way of posting (and storing) EPROMs is to put them on a piece of anti-static foam and putting them into the small plastic tubes that 35mm roll films come in. Piggy-backing them, you can get four in like this. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ A lot of the items in this library are my own programs. If you want to contribute programs, send a disk to the above address, clearly marked with your name and address. Make sure you enclose you name and address so you can be credited. It would be handy if you could do the following: {*} Supply some sort of instructions, preferably on disk. {*} State what machines it can run on, and what it needs (eg DFS). {*} You don't have to just send programs. You can also send other things, such as screen pictures, music program data, etc. Anything that you can save on a disk. (I will compress most screen pictures that I receive before putting them on disks and include *ScrLoad and *ScrSave with them.) (3) I will attempt to test all the programs I receive to see how many machines it will run on. I will also test to see if it will run on networked machines. This library is primarily for the 8-bit Acorn machines, but I will also test for Archimedes compatibility. Don't be put off by this, if you think I might frown on something because it has some incompatability, send it anyway. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ If you want to contribute to this library, don't be afraid to try. Go on, you have nothing to loose but a stamp!
