If you can send in a contribution to the September edition of TRS8BIT, please get them to me by the end of August. Thanks to everyone who's submitted articles already.

On Saturday, 13th August 2016 at 21:00hrs. EDT, Peter Cetinski and the TRS-TrashTalk crew are hold a 'Google Hangout' creating a LIVE episode. Please join in.

The June 2016, edition of TRS8BIT is available from the downloads page. With 70+ pages, I hope there's something for everyone.

In this issue, Ian Mavric gives us an insight into the Japanese Model 1, an update on the state of the business and shows us his new, 'Clearly Superior' series of a Quinnertface & a FreHD.
Larry Kraemer OCR's a file without printing first, John Mineur shows how to find a new, 'old', home for your FreHD, Hans Rietveld makes the ultimate 8" disk copying machine, Garry Howarth
explaines ROMDOS/80, Grace Hopper is the subject of 'On the shoulders of Giants', Sean Gallagher surfs the web using a Model 100 via a Raspberry Pi, Wynford & Jane James develop a
portable maze generating program and finally, along with some adverts 'from the day', don't forget, 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.
