You can open a DropBox account, store the magazines there and put here a public link.

I have scanned a couple of Danish user magazines and some brochures from Enterprise for the EP128, that might be of interest for Zozosoft's collection.
Thanks!

Bocs, ez magyarul: szóval belenéztem ezekbe az újságokba, ezek szerint volt ott is valamiféle EP-élet. Tehát EP felhasználók is! Tehát lehet hogy alkottak is valamiket. :)
Van egy lista egyik végén EP programokról, és ott van pár név amit nem ismerünk. Aqua Racer, Cadcam Warrior stb...
A diplomás magyar programozó megcsinált egy pacmant egy év alatt, majd lefikázta a világ legjobb játékait. :D

Hi

It's ok. Google translate gives me some idea about what you write in your mail :-)

All this is from 1985 or 1986, so those programs may or may not have been released. The titles include some, that the Danish supplier was promised within the 'next few months'. And we all know how dependable the supply of games were then :-)

Most of are "big" programs from famous software houses, which are also advertisted at other places. I think the Enterprise version canceled because the lot of delays of the machine :-(

Thanks!

At the magazines what means the "årgang" and "udgave"? Years of the magazine and issue in the current year?
Then 1/2 and 2/1 what we have, and least the 1/1 are missing? And who know is exist any more...
The Semicap pricelist have a date 85.11.01 in the magazine 1/2 then it is about 1985 November/December? And 2/1 are from 1986, probably January?

'1. årgang, 2 udgave' means edition no 2 from the first year of publication. In the second magazine there is an entry about deadlines for next issue, set to 31 DEC. 1985, so as was pointed out, it is from 1985. Considering the late date for next issue and that the issue with the date was no 2 for that year, it is likely there were only 2 issues that year.

Originally the magazine was published by Semicap ApS, the importer if Enterprise computers here in Denmark, but in september 1985 editorship was transferred to two guys - Lars Lie and Erik Dam Olsen. Since they refer to the transition in the year 1, issue 2 magazine, it must have been published somewhere between September and December 1985. The other one is probably from 1986. The intention was to make 4 issues per year with 200 copies printed for each issue. The second magazine mentions a membership of about 90  people in the ENTER computer club at this time. However in April 1987 they mailed subscribers to tell them that no more issues would be published, and I never saw any new issues apart from the two I have uploaded. Also an attempt to reestablish a club for Enterprise users at that time failed, since only about 15 people were interested.

Ok, I putted the magazines as 1985/2 and 1986/1 to the collection.

Also an attempt to reestablish a club for Enterprise users at that time failed, since only about 15 people were interested.
Then you totaly lost the connection with the Enterprise community?

Previously I contacted with Finn S. Nielsen from Denmark. He and his brother (Per S. Nielsen) used Bugtronics name, and made a various things for the Enterprise, for example: modem card for Enterprise, and running BBS on Enterprise! Also made a internal 512K expansion. This is also sold by the Enterprise Computers GmbH in Germany, in a "Enterprise 576K" machines. In Dutch magazines also advertisted these.
Then I thought the Danish-Dutch-German Enterprise community are closely connected at these years.

Finn & Per were among the people, who tried to continue In the user club. the persons who tried to organize it were Benny Damsgaard and Ander Nielsen. Nielsen is a very common surname in Denmark, så he may not be related to the two others.

Apart from a single visit to another Enterprise user afterwards, which may very well have been Finn or Per, because he was tinkering with new hardware for the Enterprise and had a lot of interesting stuff, I had no further contact. Those years were Amiga years, and I was and still is an avid Amiga user. I did in fact also have some contact with the English Enterprise user group and visited Mark Lissak once, when I was in London a few years later. But again, it faded out eventually. Besides I moved to Sweden to work for some years and had other priorities.

Speaking of old times, I just got a minor surprise... The latest issue of Amiga Future (issue 127), which I subscribe to, had an entire page dedicated to a trip down memory lane with the Enterprise 128. I think the reason why they suddenly use space on such a subject is, that the early Amiga and the EP 128 had quite a lot in common - superior tech. specs and bad management and going bust in the end to be sort of resurrected by fans, to mention a few things.

Anyway there is not anything surprising in the article. The writer ends by naming the EP 128 as the '8-bit Amiga', which i guess is high praise in these circles :-)
