Wouter's computer stuff: wanted
As I have more space and time now in 2017, I'm looking for a few things to play with :)
I'd like to find:
- BBC micro service manual, july 1984
- I've long tried to find Lincoln systems Aid (debugger), the ROM image is in the archive, but no manual. At the time that it was advertised in the magazines, I wrote my own debugger and made its screen output similar to what I saw of Aid in the ads :) Surely it must have been sold? Why have I never encountered it? Was it so poor that everyone threw it away? ;-) I'd also be interested just in scans of the manual, but if anyone has an original for sale and doesn't want to scan, I'm interested.
- Software, on disk:
-- 6502 2nd processor elite (the standalone version, SNG 45, not the 2p/master version)
- Software on tape:
-- Philosopher's quest (with hints envelope)
-- Countdown to doom (with hints envelope)
-- Castle of riddles (with hints envelope)
-- Sphinx adventure (with hints envelope)
-- Kingdom of Hamil (with hints envelope)
-- JCB digger.
- BBC B with rough casing, issue 4 PCB, earlier PCB is no problem but then I guess I will need another BBC for a board transplant :) Yellowing is no problem, but general mechanical condition of case/keyboard should be good.
- General: A really funny book from ca. 1983 that I still have not been able to trace, alas I don't remember the author, but the book was green with I think black cross pattern on it like is done for notebooks in school for making graphs. In this book the author made jokes about computers and the people using them, with a budget computer for example being the 'peanut computer', which uses peanuts for '1' :) Also a healthy baseball playing kid turning into a nerd with glasses and much more. It is an American book, quite funny, It was not "The official computer hater's book" (Arneson), though there are some similarities in jokes with that book.
