EDITORS PREAMBLE 


So here it is guys, December, in 
case you had not noticed, and get 
this, our next meeting .falls on 
Friday Dec. the 13th. 

No it is not an omen, Sinclair 
wise that is, I don't know about 
you personal. 


Zeep,s back and he wrote a little 
pome?  Poom? Ah right, poem. It 
started me thinking. How about 
the great Sinclair limerick 
contest, the winner gets to take 
the Zeeper out for lunch at his 
fave greasy spoon. 


I'll start it of by ripping the 
Zeep himself off, I mean I am a 
computer tech right I don't worry 
about the Zeeps little escapades 
right? 

Right. 

There once was a hacker named 
Darryl, 

Who ignored the old Zeep at his 
peril. 


The Zeeper he thought, 
is a bit of a fraud, 


Until his smoking ZX showed his 
error. : 
Yes I know, it rambles, so send 


me something better already. 


Down to business. 


The Nov. meeting was full of it, 
business that is. It was decided 
at the meeting, without any 
serious objections, to raise the 


yearly membership dues to $15.00. 
So that’s what it is from now on, 
15 smackers. 

Wilf Rigter wondered whether it 
would be possible to increase 
services to the members along 
with the dues. Wilf ofcourse has 
been working on a memory bank 
switching scheme and other 
hardware clevernesses. Once he 
has these things perfected he 
will put ona little presentation 
at one of the meetings. 


downright oppressive. 


(2) 


Things like that are what 
services to the members are all 
about. 

At the meeting Bob Denison and 
Ken Abramson showed us the 
intricacies of soldering while 


the robot

services. 


And let us not forget, writing 


articles, or devilishly clever 
SHORT little programs, for 
publication in Your newsletter, 


those are services too. 


So "eh, when are You going to 
start servicing. 

John Brohman told us that the 
Frog Hollow, Beach and Poco 
bulletin boards can. be accessed 
by 2X81,s with modems and that 
these boards have ZX compatible 


files on em for downloading. 

Go to it guys and aside from 
down, do some up loading as well 
will you. 


As mentioned Karl Brown was at 
the meeting and he brought some 
slide impressions with him from 
the Pacific Robot show which he 
attended. Over all he was not too 
impressed with the hardware 
displayed at the show especially 
when one considers the “bang per 


buck" ratio. In other words there 
where some semi impressive pieces 
of hardware to be seen but the 
price of these things was 


He is working on it. 

With BERT. 

BERT is the Basic Educational 
Robot being built by the students 
in Karl,s robotics class and he 
was shown to us at the meeting. 


Some of the student members 
brought along there particular 
versions of BERT and all in all 


it seemed to me as if the BERTs 


had a ball.

From Page 2 


I have also mentioned before that 
Ken A. and Bob D.put on a 
soldering/desoldering show and it 
was fun. Don’t ask me to repeat 
here what was discussed it is too 
much. It had to do with acid 
cored tin/lead- alloy - soldering 
wire and 200 watt soldering 
irons. 

The latter you apparently ought 
not to employ on your ZX PC board 
because it turns it all smelly 
and black in no time flat. 

Maybe I can talk Bob or Ken into 
putting the highlight of their 
presentation on paper. 

Anybody else need some broad 
hints? I got lots more where this 
one came from. 


Well that was pretty well it for 
the meeting and as for me, I 
think I’ll pack it up for this 
issue. 

See you at the meeting.

THE ZEEPER SPEAKS... 

Yes foiks I'e back. I have 
been across the ponc for the 
last several months anc I'm sure 
you have heard of ay adventures. 
I figured the oniy way to 5503 
this Sinclair fanaticism was to 
go straight to the source. Merry 
oice Engianc is a  woncer?ui 
place, Over there they use real 
computers like the AMSTRAD which 
are well susoorted anc delivered 
off the shelf. 

I arrived in t^e nick of 
time, Your ommisotert Bir Clive 
had managed to bungie the 
management of the comoary so 
badly that it was millions in 
debt. Just like Timex hac David 
Higgenbottos, Sinclair ^ad Bos 
Maxwell. It seems that Yr. 
Maxwell had, unbeknownst . to 
his, a Ferranti chip secretly 
implanted in his brain. He 
thought that purchasing Sinclair 
Reseach was a cood idea. 

Let me 5811 you 5 ^ad ay 
hands full this tise. This œas 
Maxweil had lots of money unlike 
Higcenoottom who just had lots 
of ideas. The oniy way i could 
stop this demented man was to 
enlist the forces o? Doooer ard 
Lybrand. This is a  woric 
reknowned accountting firs which 
has the reputation of being the 
uncertaxers of the business 
world. They took ome lock at the 
DOCKS and orocucts of Sinclair 
Research and cave a rescuncin; 
tnum5s cown. 


(5) - 


Folks let me teil. When 
Cooper and Lybrand touch you, 
it's the kiss of  corsorate 
death, Absolutely nobody can 
save Sir Ciive now. He's 
finished, kaput, crashed, It's 
just a matter of time.l have 
finally won. There won't 38 
anymore Sinclair comouters. Even 
Encland has civem up om the UL. 
in North America it has been the 
subject of reveiws that even 
embarrassed se, 

What is to become of all of 
you faithful disciples? I'm 
sorry to say that you'il orobaly 
be put in the same category as 
Easel collectors. Some of you 
will be enlightened enough to 
invest in an AIGA which is a 
real comouter, but the rest of 
you? I`li get you one by ome. ጸ 
failed chip here, a cead rampax 
there, ihe occaisional voitace 
soike. 

I will continue to 
entertain you with various 
stories of user misadventures 
from time to time, For instance 
I even have a 135519 poem for 
you this time. 


There once Was a hacker named 
Darryl 
Who ignored my pleas to his 
peril. 
The Zeeper ^e thought was a 
joke 
untii his 2068 went uo in smoke,

PLAYING. WITH ELECTRICITY 8(x).. (Harvey Taylor) 


Well I finally got. my printer . You will just. have to put up with 
my messing around with different typestyles. Between Quill and the 
LX80, there are a lot of different combinations to try. 

In the-last column I managed to (fet. to Paul before the deadline 
(sigh), 1 posted some results ofthe Sieve of Eratosthenes in Superbasic 
and 68008 Assembler. Now that | have my printer, I can ret. the code on 
paper & so bere it. is. Any of you who may be experienced 68K hackers 
fay see ways to optimize the code. The 'CET FLP2 standard hdr3’ line at 
the beginning is an instruction to the assembler to get the file which 
contains all the QDOS system calls & values. ( Well most. anyway, I’m 
adding them as ] use them & there are 1594 QDOS calls documented. ) 

By the way, that. reminds me. Anybody who 15 going to get into some 
serious programming will find ADRIAN DICKENS “QL ADVANCED USERS QUIDE” 
invaluable . There is also available from Boston Sinclair, The QI 
Technical Guide , (0U2$20.00 + shipping) which has some additional 
informat.ion. 

Also by the way, If this article should happen to fall into tho 
hands of any other QL owner, drop me 8 line. I'm trying to maintain 
contact with as many Qi? ers as possible. 

Back to the 11:211ከ(, as you see, most of the nonessential code 
consist: of system calls (via QDOS, QDOS_N, VECTOR, &VECTOR N). This makes 
it easy to do the simpie sorts of housekeeping things that always need 
to be taken care of ...... BUT, IT MEANS YOU GOTTA DO IT THEIR WAY. 
WHICH 15 OKAY IF 'THEY' HAPPEN TO BE GOING YOUR WAY, (EXCEPT HOW OFTEN 
DOES THAT HAPPEN?) 

THERE is a direct. correlation between the assembler listings and 
the basic code of last time which will give you an idea 
what the code is about, label by label. GET IN TOUCH WITH ME IF YOU 
HAVE QUESTIONS.

The 128K‘s code name Derby 
has been Launched in Spain and 
Will be available in the Spring 
in Britain. 

Essentially twe computerz 
in one, When turned on the IZSEK 
mode is on automatically, but 
type SPECTRUM and it becomes a 
45K Spectrum Pius, compieteig 
compatible with alil the existing 
Spectrum Software. The UK model 
Will sali for about £150. 

The 128K Looks Like a Plus 
With a big heat sink boltéd on 
the righthand Sid&, and seperate 
Kegpad attached to the computer 
BY a coii-cord inte the front of 
the Spectrum. 

A full range or Ports have 
been included. There is an R535232 
SOCket, MIDI Sockets For musical 
instrument hook-up, reset Switch 
RGB^Composite socket, TU socket 
the tape Leads on the Left hand 
Side, and the edge connector in 
the usual piace, A Sound-Chip» 55 
on the TS 29858, Sound through a 
TU speaker & adjustable, 

In the 128K mode the Key 
word system is not used, They 
are entered one Letter at 5 time 
but retained in the 43K mode, 
The 128 has the Capacity to act 
82 a RAM disk. That’s a facility 
whereby areas of RAM can be set 
aside to store a suite of pro- 
Sframs or sets of data in Much 
the same way as an Microdrives, 
Access to fiies on RAM disk is 
almost as instantaneous. As an 
Example the command ‘CAT’ Ero- 
duces an instant Cataiog 07 RAM 
files. There is still no Sign or 
a Joystick part, 

There may be a feu Changes 
before it appears on the British 
market scene. It Looks ta be a 
Strong base model for the neu 
Sinclair range including the new 
Portable PANDORA and the desktop 
ENIGMA.

ODDS AND ENDS 
A contributed by Arbie Fru 
John Brohman bought a new printer and called me because he was having troubles 


getting it to work with his Memotech Centronics. Seems his Old co-op's Epson 
worked just fine but since he changed address he had to spring for his own and 


it was not quite so co-operative. Anyway, this caused me to resume my search for 
the answer to my (and nou-John's) printer problems. Via a tip from John the 
search lead to Fred Nachbaur in Nelson and I might add the point to this story. 
Fred and a couple of others are involved in a cross-continental publishing 
venture called SuncWare Neus and a neu quarterly called MemoNotes. Fred was nice 
enough to send a copy of each. SuncWare Neus is a good publication Catering to 
the technical side. Lots of hardware and softuare projects and lots of digging 
into the ROM to figure ways around ZX shortcomings. MemoNotes does basicly the 
same thing for Memotext and Memocalc. Fred has several modified software 
versions of Memotext one of which uses Powell Hargrave’s SDS fastloader Program 
to really speed things up. MemoNotes costs US$13.95(four issues) and SuncWare 
Notes costs US$19.95 (six issues) and both are available through the editor Tom 
Bent 9016 Flicker Place, Colombia, MD 21045. f 

So did all this solve John or my problem you ask? Don’t be naive it’s never 
that simple in Sinclair land. John solved his problems by throwing money at 
them. (he bought a different printer) I now know what the problem is and that it 
can be fixed or gotten around and maybe someday.... I have been deliberately 
vague as to what the problem is because explaining what happens would take up to 
much space but suffice to Say that it has to do with the way the Centronics 
handles linefeeds. If you are planning to buy a full size printer and use the 
Memotech Centronics make sure the printer has a line feed command which can be 
toggled to cause a linefeed + carriage return or to cause a linefeed only. Most 
Printers have a toggle on the CR command, not all have it on the LF. This is 
important because the Centronics only sends out LFs (apparently a nonstandard 
thing to do). Unfortunately the cheaper machines seem to be the ones to leave 
this toggle out. 


THE ANSWER TO LIFE, THE UNIVERSE, AND EVERYTHING (8 K ROM) 


Many people think computers are a black boxes with answers in them, and 
that programing is a way of extracting answers from the computer. On the TV 
series, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (a BBC production broadcast on PBS), 
the second greatest computer of all time answers "the" question. It took 
7.1/2 million years to run the program to completion. 


.Fortunately, we had a monkey typing at random on our computer, and it 
came up with a program which answers "the" question in only a few minutes. I 
was frankly dísappointed with the result. But, anyway, here is the program: 


1 LET A$="I-SQR IPEXP(-PI*I)/PI**2" 
10 PRINT "ENTER YOUR AGE" 


20 INPUT I 
30 CLS 


40 PRINT ,,,,"THE ANSWER TO LIFE, 
THE UNIVERSE, AND EVERYTHING IS "; 

42 LET I-VAL ልፅ (3 TO 4) 

50 IF VAL A$ THEN GOTO 42 

60 PRINT (STRS (VAL A$ (6 TO 12))(3 TO 4) 

70 PRINT "ENTER A FRIENDS AGE" 

80 COTO 20 








The answer is, of course, a number. In case you do not believe that 
there is a number which answers the mysteries of the Universe, I refer you to 
Martin Gardner’s column in the November 1979 issue of Scientific American.
