Hi Erik,

Have you considered getting the vintage computer
communties (who have a FAQ) to get them to update
their FAQs with a link & description of your
messageboard?

I know some people normally just check the FAQ,
maybe a web based messageboard may appeal
more to them than a newsgroup.

Cheers.

That's a really good idea. I'd also be willing to set up a FAQ message area for research purposes. . .

I'll have to look around to find some of these FAQs. Any you can point me to would be great.

Thanks,

Erik

The CP/M one in particular has gone a bit wayward
because there seems to be more than one floating
around & they seem to be different. Gaby
Chaundry has one on her site which is much more
updated, but is suggesting to post modifications to
the e-mail on this site:
http://www.cpmspectre.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/cpm/cpm_faq.htm

That hasn't been updated since 2001!

For the Amstrads there is a FAQ, but don't really
know where it would fit.

There is also 5 sections to this FAQ, Emmanuel
Roussin would be the main person to write to.

- Emmanuel Roussin, roussin@noos.fr, section A (CPC),
D (PcW16), E (PDA600)
- Mark Ray, h089@mth.uea.ac.uk, section B (Notepad)
- Frank van Empel, fvempel@euronet.nl, section C (PCW)

Only reason I don't know where to fit a site like this
is because it seems to talk about the Amstrad in
particular. Naturally, you could try asking Emmanuel
to see if he will include something like discussion
groups into his FAQ (it might work).

But really, there must be loads of FAQs out there
for vintage computers, so it would be something
that would keep your work cut out! :-)

Cheers.
