This year is starting to run away. Any articles for the December edition of TRS8BIT, please email them to me by the end of November.

Episode 10 of TrashTalk is now available. There's all sorts of new and a super interview with Lance Micklus, the author of ST80 III and many other programs.

And finally, how's you competition entry coming along? I've not had any entries as yet :(

The September 2016 edition available from the downloads page. Once again, there are nearly 70 pages to entertain and delight you :) (I hope). Andrew Quinn builds an Alpha
Style joystick, KreativeKorp give us all a 'Tandy' TrueType font for your PC, the Herculean efforts of Pascal Holdry are explored, I look back to the UK's Tandy scene, 35 years
ago, Ian Mavric details the Co-Co, fixes serial interfaces and creates FreHD auto-boot EPROMS, Larry Kraemer explains the Motorola MCM667x, Brian Smith's original 'snow
clearing' article is given a reprise and finally, along with some adverts 'from the day', there are details of
this years competition and the prizes on offer.

Indexes for NATGUG News, TRSTIMES, 80-US and 80-Microcomputing, together with back issues of TRS8BIT, the NEWDOS86/90 manual, Mav's Building the Super Micro
and the Aculab Floppy Tape User Guide, are available from the downloads page. Index down-loads are 'ZIP' files. The index(es) contain 2 copies. All are in Microsoft Works
database format.
There are 2 files, the first as a *.wdb and the second as comma separated value file. All other publications, including TRS8BIT, are in .pdf format.

If you encounter any problems downloading, or if, like me, you would prefer to read a 'hard-copy', A4 booklet version of the latest newsletter, please, email me and I'll post a
copy off to you.
