End Of The Year

Well, that's 1992 almost over ... where did all the time go??!! I'm sure you'll agree that, thanks to our numerous contributors, it has been a very good year for EUG, and 1993 looks as if it could be even better! So keep your news, views, letters, articles, etc coming!

I am pleased to announced that, at long last, I have finally acquired a Slogger Pegasus 400 Interface and disk system. So now you can send your submissions on any disk format (although 80 Track is preferred!).

Can I just say here that if you do have a disk system and you do have the View word processor, please use them to send your contributions! I'm not the world's fastest (or most accurate!) typist and the less time I have to spend over a smoking keyboard, the more time I can devote to User Group activities. The only drawback with this arrangement is that I can't always transfer software or View files to my own disks straight away and there is sometimes a long delay before disks are returned. So what I propose to do is send a new, blank disk back to you by return of post and keep your original disk (hopefully fully labelled with your name and the contents!) for later use! Can we give this a try please?!! Non-View owning tape users should continue to use paper (unless sending a long listing!).

I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous and Happy New Year! I'm off to take up my seasonal employment, which involves a large conifer, a tutu and a step ladder .....................

P.S. Very Old Joke

Question: How many computer programmers does it take to change a light bulb?
Answer: None, it's a hardware problem!
