Title: Early programming guide
Post by: MCTNET on 2021.July.20. 10:15:43
Hi All,

I've had a fascination with the Enterprise for over 30 years, my dad worked at the factory which made it for many years (Welwyn Components in Bedlington in England) and we had a 64 sitting round in the loft for many years. They were sold off to employees for something like £10 when Intelligent Software went bust. I remember him saying he wrote programs to dump and load the screen contents but I don't think it's related to the one that appeared on the Plus cartridge.

I can't ever remember us using it when I was a kid, we had an Amstrad CPC464 and then an Amiga which got much more use. I read the programming guide cover to cover though, and was fascinated with the machine. Unfortunately the Enterprise was thrown away 20+ years ago during a house move.

I still have the programming guide though, which seems to be some sort of pre release one with amendments:


I bought a 128 off eBay a few years ago, in pretty much perfect condition. Don't think it was really used much, serial number is:


Look forward to speaking with you all!

It is a pleasure to hear old tales about the computer. Fragment by fragment of memories we could glimpse these times and complete the history.
