Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

Getting the Most from Your Printer Date: June 1986 Getting the Most from Your Printer

It is probably true to say that 80% of dot-matrix owners only ever use 20% of the possible features offered by their printers. This is generally due to the fact that most manuals supplied with printers are not particularly "reader friendly" and take some considerable understanding.

The purpose of this book is to help you to realise more of the capabilities of your dot-matrix printer, by showing exactly how to achieve given effects in word processing, when printing listings and from your own programs.

This book is written for the BBC Computer and Acorn Electron, Amstrad, Sinclair Spectrum and QL, Commodore 64, Memotech, MSX and Enterprise machines as well as other business machines.
