The December 2018 edition of TRS8BIT is now available from the downloads page.

Once again, I think we’ve produced quite a spectacular issue, which I hope you will all enjoy over the Christmas period. Ian Mavric has done us proud again, not just with his T.A. 2018 review but with a very informative article reviewing the Tandy Daisy Wheel printers. He also reviews the upgrades to the M1 power supply and sets out, in detail, some of the developments both he and Kyle Wadsten are working on for next year.

E.T. Fonehume and George Phillips have sent in some original (and fun) BASIC programs, (which are available from the downloads page, just to save typing).

There’s a for sale/Wanted page and the usual review of the U.K.’s Ebay sales.

Also, I came across a review of the ‘TBA - The BASIC answer’ from 1983. Has anyone used the software? I see it’s for a M4 and LDOS users only.

Peter Cetinski has released episode 26 of Trashtalk. Knut Roll-Lund has released V2.0 of PLAYCAS. It’s available from his website.

Cat Mantra’, in the UK, has released a new game called Actual Reality. Full details are on Facebook and Ebay.

Peter Cetinski’s game called Breakdown is still available from his website.

The collection of one line BASIC programs for the M1 is still available from the downloads page. There is an A4 style booklet, as a .PDF file, together with a /DSK file of the included programs.

As always, 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 3 copies. They are now in .accdb, .xlsx and .csv format.

All other publications, including TRS8BIT, are in .pdf format.
