A New Column

By John Crane

Originally published in EUG #41

Hello, everyone!

As the EUG disk's been a bit depleted of late, I've offered to do a 'column' each issue to try and fill it up a bit. I'm not an expert in anything in particular - more of a 'dabbler' really, so it'll probably be a bit of a mish-mash of stuff. A bit tech-ish and a bit chat. Please feel free to comment and pass on suggestions via EUG.

Some issues back [EUG #37 - Gus], I suggested members sending photos in; a sort of 'Rogues' Gallery' if you like, but so far I've had no response. Surely I'm not the only one who likes looking at himself on telly. Then again...

Anyway I've sent some more imagery to perhaps stimulate some interest. The first one is my computer set up and unfortunately, due to technical difficulties (My conversion program can only handle 'Landscape' pictures), it requires the Monitor tilting 90 degrees. Or at least, print it out first then tilt. That's easier.

If anyone's interested: Spares at the top, disks and manuals next, Risc PC on left, Electron on right, printer, scanner, 5.25" drive and cassette on bottom and Spaghetti Junction between, so to speak.

Picture 2 is the man who started the ball rolling: founder Will Watts (gleaned from EUG #2, November 1991).

Changing the subject completely, if anyone is still looking for new BBC and Electron software, they may be interested in contacting ProAction. They can supply a catalogue of a number of Superior and Acornsoft titles.

Right, that's about it for now. Next time, I hope to discuss BBC emulators for the RISC OS and also for the PC. Unless anyone has any other suggestions.
