To send an email, simply write a PLAIN ASCII text file and send it to me. I
will email the message to wherever you want.
One place you may wish to email is the BBC mailing list. Anyone in the world
who is interested in BBCs receives any mail addressed to this list. 8BS is of
course on the mailing list.
Any questions you have will probably be answered by many people at once. I
will place any replies either on the 8BS issue (if they are interesting) or
place them into the messaging system directly to you.

These dates are the NOT THE ACORN USER SHOW. EPISODE 2.
YES! Jonathan Harston has kindly thrown his doors open to us lot for the 8BS
club meeting for these days. An unmissable event. Be there or be square (and
miss the best event of the year). Some of us will be staying for the full do.
You are welcome to attend any or all of the days. Exactly the same
arrangements as last year apply.
There are a few beds and plenty of space for camp beds with kipping bags.
We look after ourselves for food. What usually happened last year was that
Jonathan provided stuff for the odd buttie. We generally popped out to one of
the many local take away establishments. Chippy, Indian, Chinese and
supermarket are all within handy staggering distance (or rolling, those hills
There is even a pub with pool table close at hand.
Bring your favourite bit of equipment or software with you.
More details next time
Contact me if you have any questions.
Please let me know if you intend to come. Please let me know if you intend to
stop over so that I can keep a track of available space. There are also plenty
of local B+B places.
The 8BS telephone network is still under construction. Not forgotten. Jonathan
Harston has the fileserver and is putting the finishing touches to the
software that will run the system. I am hoping that we will be able to tie
everything up at the NTAU2 event.
I am an Ambulance Paramedic working at a nearby Ambulance Station. For the
last year I have been seconded off the road doing this and that. I will
shortly be back on shifts working as a Paramedic again, by my request. I know
which side my bread is buttered in the present climate. Nuff said.
As yet, I don't know what shifts I will be working. I will probably publish my
shift calculator again when I know.
See you next time
