SLOGGER CLICK CARTRIDGE
Slogger's Click Interface
"The philosophy behind the CLICK design is to provide the user with a means of performing a wide variety of functions in total transparency to the normal operation of the Electron. In other words, the user may enter CLICK, perform whatever tasks he wishes and, when finished, continue exactly where he left off..."

- Slogger 1991 Catalogue, 1991

What It Does

Slogger's Click is a 9cm x 7cm x 1.5cm creme coloured interface, the same size as an Acornsoft ROM cartridge. It connects only to an Acorn Electron computer that has been expanded with either an Acorn Plus 1, an AP1 or a Rombox+.

Click contains a 32K ROM, 32K of Battery backed RAM, a Calendar Clock chip (as used in the Master 128 machine), a rechargeable Battery and control hardware. On its top is a push button switch that is used to switch control to and from the cartridge to the machine.

When entered, Click offers the following facilities:

DIARY ... CALENDAR, APPOINTMENTS, ADDRESS BOOK
TAPE TO DISC ... ADFS and DFS
ADFS UTILS ... EXTREE, FORMAT, VERIFY, DISK EDIT, SNAPSHOOT
DFS UTILS ... CATALOGUE, FORMAT, VERIFY, DISK EDIT, SNAPSHOOT
SYSTEM UTILS ... MEMORY EDITOR, CONFIGURE PRINTER, CMOS CLOCK, ROMS, MOUSE
SCREEN DUMP ... GRAPHIC SCREENS, TEXT SCREENS

When the user exits Click, the memory and screen is restored and use continues exactly where the Electron left off.

The Click cartridge was originally available by mail order only for £59.95. It was released very late in the Electron's lifetime and bought by only a small handful of people. With as much on-board memory in its little coffers as that of the Electron itself, Click disturbs nothing when functioning. Very, very rarely, a second hand Click comes up on eBay. The last one seen there had a start bid price of £100.00, but did not sell for this, suggesting that although the interface is extremely rare, it may not command a price that reflects this. However, it may sell for upwards of £25.00.
