A number of offers have been received from User Groups in America
and Australia to exchange disks of Public Domain programs which is a
great idea but does cause a problem in that there seems to be very few
programs available in the U.K. to make up disks for exchange. If you
read Antic magazine you will know that you can purchase disks of
Public Domain programs from them at low cost and Page 6 would like to
do the same making both disks and cassettes of U.K. and overseas
material available to Users. The success of this depends entirely on
you. If there are not enough programs to make up a U.K. disk then we
will have nothing to exchange, so if you have written a program or a
demonstration, send a cassette or disk to Page 6. When your program is
included on a U.K. disk, your disk or tape will be returned (when the
exchange programs are available) with something like 5-10 programs
from overseas. Other Users will be able to purchase disks or tapes at
the cost of making them available.
Sounds good, doesn't it? Well it's up to you to make it work, so
send in your programs now.
As well as more programs, articles, hints and tips we hope to be
able to publish a definitive list of all the books that are available
for your Atari computer. This is where YOUR help will be invaluable.
If you have any unusual books on the Atari, perhaps that you obtained
from America, please drop us a line with details of the title,
publisher and price and a brief description of the contents. Let's see
how many books there really are for the Atari.
