printers, etc, should also be included. Any product approved by Nascom for attachment to their computers should also fall within the ‘Nascom only’ definition.

Dear Editor,

I agree wholeheartedly with your suggestion that the ‘news’ become Nasbus oriented and not solely concerned with Nascom products. In this way one can get a properly balanced view of all that is available as a rival to the S100, however small.

(There follows some technical details related to Nasbus specs).

Thirdly, but not least, I note that there are a number of 8 x 8 cards which are becoming available for the Nasbus. The operative words in this are surely ‘becoming available’, not actually ‘available now’. One hopes that we do not go through the usual rigmarole of products ‘being developed’ which somehow seems to take two years to fruition.


Yours sincerely,
John Stuckey

(Ed. I am sure that all the boards that we referred to in the last issues are ‘available now’ – sorry if that is a shock to the system!)


Dear INMC80,

My vote goes to Nasbus compatible products. Without them the present dedicated dealers would have hardly survived, so I don’t go along with the Lucas request for Nascom only.

Many thanks for another superb mag .... etc.

Yours gratefully,

Dear Mr. Hunt,

I think the INMC80 should support all Nasbus compatible products, not just those from Nascom. Whilst the newsletter would clearly benefit from the blessing of Lucas Logic Ltd., its prime responsibility should be to its readership, who I think would be better served by taking a ‘wider’ approach. Enough said.

(He then says some very nice things about us, and please send us a rough draft of your ‘Laboratory Control System’, it sounds fascinating).

Yours sincerely,
Dr. C. R. Brown


Dear Chairman,

I feel that the mag should retain its existing identity and content, continuing to cover ALL Nasbus compatible items, since these are of prime interest to the membership and must be encouraged by Lucas since they enhance and encourage ownership and sales of Nascom products.
