july 16 1998
well this page is being rushed online as i type !
excuse mistakes !!
---- the library has a whole bunch of stuff just received but i'm still wading through it , checking out duplications and useable stuff , when there's a fewdays to spare soon i'll be able to put up a new section of the disk catalouge
also coming soon will be a C64 section of the library till next time keep it commodore !

the disk backlog is still there due to decorating , getting an exhibition ready ( 2 in fact ! ) .
well after a query the way the library works is this
i'm the the u.k. nearby richmond park to be precise , and people send me floppies for me to copy stuff onto then i put the disks into the return envelope that has been sent with them with the right amount of stamps needed and drop it into the nearest post box .
this service is free to icpug members - non icpug cbm/pet owners - i'll work something out in each individual case .
i'm not a post office with lots of stamps to hand or a vastly wealthy type with lots of money either !
i just do it cause i like commodore computers !
well that this weeks section dealt with - items will be added to the site as and when and yes i will get the links back to the front page sorted out !

well the gallery page is without sound at moment due to the fact that i've not been able to upload it as yet !
The additions to the library are slowly building up and there'll be another page soon as possible

the fact that ICPUG (national) is to stop on jan 1st 1999 is not going to affect the CBM/PET library - indeed it's undergoing expansion to include a C64 section - the catalouge disk is under construction at this moment .
The future plans include a diskzine ( to be issued on any Commodore format disk ) , articles in Commodore world , and the carrying on of the tradition of ICPUG in helping any Commodore user .
the library is now available to all - just send disks & return P&P for items needed .

i've uploaded a new page 5 ( at last ! )
as well as having a test page of of a 512k music sample in QTM format
- the library knows papa george band !
The C64 ection has now reached 330 disks ( and i've got to redo the cat disks for various reasons -- arrgh!! )
A recent trip to bushey benny proved to be a fiasco - why not tell people the facts before they start out - like on the first phone call ? ,
still it enabled me to have a train journey through the north pole jct ! ...
wed 23 dec
the C64 catalog is finished except for a few disks to be entered
and i'll be uploading it as soon as etc , some time in january .
(but by then it'll probably be even larger ! )
thurs 4 mar
at long last the C64 catalog is online !
This will be added to over time , i've split the listings into sections reflecting the contents , among the items available are
C64 , 1541 , 1571 , service manuals , the commodore guide to programming the C64 , the book 'mapping the C64
so explore the sections - and remember all contributions etc .

Well the name has changed but the song remains the same !
Quite a few pages have been added to the C64 section , although the first batch of additions did have a few missing lines in the translation
so there may be some files in the catalogue disks that aren't in the website ....
So send for the updated version folks !
Some people may've sent me e-mails during end march / all of april that i've not replied to
Well I've had e-mail probs during that time so I didn't get them - hence lack of reply ! - all sorted now though
