The Versatile Elk

By Terry Monaghan

Originally published in EUG #03

I am inclined to be a more serious user of my Electron and have expanded it to increase its versatility. It consists of the basic machine to which I have added from Pres: AP1, AP2, AP3, AP6, AP7 and ADT (which I found I could not use for lack of knowledge of what I assume to be assembly language - perhaps scope for a future article in the mag). The AP5, so I'm told, is no longer available.

I have recently added a printer (Panasonic KX-P1624) and my Electron has just returned from Cornwall where Slogger Computers have just grafted in a Master RAM Board and their brand new Stop Press 64 (I think I may have been the first customer for this!).

I have more or less mastered View. I am working with Viewsheet and Viewstore and hope to be able to use all three interactively before too long. The SP64 requires a mouse to run it and I expect to have that in the next week - then I'm ready for Desk Top Publishing. Who needs a RISC OS and 32-bit technology? Not me, I have a 64K Electron.
