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 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 ************ If you send a disk with a rom image on it and an EPROM and I will program it. Alternatively, I can supply the EPROMs. The costs for these are: Programming: £1.00 each Supply of EPROMS: £4.00 each So, if you send a disk with an image on, and want four roms programmed with it, that is £1.00 + 4*£4.00 = £17.00. If you supply the four roms, it is 4*£1.00 = £4.00. 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 your 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). 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.
