Quick Letter

Many thanks for the latest issue of EUG, from which I note you are a bit desperate for input. As I haven't been in touch for a while, due mainly to moving house, I thought I'd throw in a line or two just to let you know I'm still about - not that I have got much to report or drivel on about.

I have, in the meantime, upgraded from my A3010 to the A7000+ and still find your disk easily accessible with the emulator. The speed difference between the A3010 and the A7000+ has the same gap as the Welsh XV and the South African XV (96 - 0). Having just bought No. 1 son a Pentium II for his PhD I know which I prefer and it's At Heart, not Inside, if you know what I mean.

I have enclosed two scraps of info: one from a contact in New Zealand and one from the latest issue of Computer Shopper (must keep a watch on the WINDOZE unwise!). I don't know if you can use them, but they are of some interest perhaps!

I look forward to the next issue.

You know me, always desperate for input. And readers need reminding from time to time.

For the benefit of everyone else, the article from Computer Shopper is an advert from a company touting loans. There is a picture of a basic Electron and the caption "Now is the time to upgrade". We all know what they mean. I must confess that, while I won't be getting rid of my Elk because it's too much fun, I have thought that now might be a good time to think about buying one of the latest (for now) PCs. (I wonder if there's any coincidence in the abbreviation for PC for Personal Computer and Politically Correct?) The prices are so low and what some places are offering is becoming tempting. I saw one ad offering a free digital camera and a colour printer for under £900. Now if I only had £900.
