Unfortunately, this EUG comes with the worst loading screen yet but, as I keep emphasising, this is your EUG and if no-one contributes, this is how it will turn out. Read my editorial for more information.

Utilities

ELK IN ARCHIMEDES PROJECT
This news is so interesting that it is called directly before the menu system. Rolf Paoli has successfully installed an Electron inside his Archimedes - but it's very technical!

LOTTERY CHECKER
A handy utility for checking your syndicate's pre-selected numbers with those drawn by one of BBC's machines. Written in machine code and much faster than checking with eyes alone.

PRINTER DRIVER
A utility for anyone still without a printer driver. Full documentation.

SUPER TRACE
Now you can step through your program line by line with this smashing Electron User utility.

Games Extravaganza

Dominoes
Take on your Elk in the old family favourite. It puts up a pretty mean performance too!

IDIOTS' DELIGHT PATIENCE
A new variation of the patience card game by those master-coders HeadFirst PD. There's no end to their talents!

Jason Mason
Select a picture and then try to build it up with a familiar-looking sprite. A strategic and demanding puzzle game.

Microtype
Type quickly and more accurately with this impressive BASIC utility from Kansas City Systems.

Quarters
A difficult dominoes variation which doesn't lure its player into any false sense of security. An acquired skill.

Articles

Something has gone wrong in this sci-fi story.

Knocking The Gates Articles
I continue my articles on those things in the world of the PC which irk or annoy me.
