Title: More instructions please
Post by: shallam01 on 13 March, 2017, 12:26:43 pm
For those of us not au fait with message boards where can we find some simple "how to post /reply" directions rather than the whole detailed  rules /etiquette thing.

Really glad to be part of the community. Long time reader / first time poster.

This weekend I just read 75 archive progs in a row. Wife very unhappy !

Which range of progs did you read?  Hope you circuits were strong enough for that intake of thrill-power, etc ;)

Earthlet- please be aware that vintage progs have no appreciable loss of thrill-power.

Read responsibly.

and welcome.

And most important of all, seconds after you've pressed post you realise you want to either add something or delete something but can't because that one time the 'modify message' button doesn't appear :)

Thanks all. I think I can see my way around now a lot better. The old progs were all within the first 100 or
So. I was surprised how much I gravitated to Mach one (which I never lived at the time )
I recently read invasion in trades and think it's still a masterpiece. Early future shocks pretty great.

As you all know - amazing how well it both stands as a testament to the time AND still reads well today.
