Quote from Steve:
The fourth disk meant we had made it through one year of publication.
I was pleased that I'd managed to keep the disks on time. The disks sold well and the only complaint was that it was mainly games on the disk.
My aim, (see disk 2) was to provide a mixture of old and new, which I think I achieved, and most people were wanting games. I tried to include some form of utility or demo program code on each disk too.
People were invited to request specific programs for inclusion on the disks but it was really down to me to see what I could find.
