Title: Atari User / Monitor Magazine Program Disks
Post by: prixon on November 06, 2005, 11:02:35 AM
Both "Atari User" magazine (published by Database/Europress) and Monitor Magazine (published by the UK Atari Computer Owners Club, run by staff from Maplin) made program disks available to readers. In the case of Atari User I believe they were also posted on the Microlink/Telcom Gold service.

So far I've not found anyone who has these disks - can anyone help?

I would really like to preserve the listings from these mags but don't have the time to type them in!

We have now obtained Atari User disks for all of Volumes 1 and 2 plus several from Volume 3. I'm not sure whether they were even produced for all subsequent issues as they ceased to be advertised in the magazine after the "Microlink" download service was launched. Does anyone know? Did anyone use the Microlink Service?

Thanks if you can help,

Paul
