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 Lynx - The indispensable guide to your Home Computer


SO YOU'VE JUST BOUGHT A LYNX

But how does it work? What can it do? How can you use it for games? How do you write programs? How do you produce graphics? What do you do if something goes wrong?

Getting The Most From Your Lynx is a comprehensive and carefully designed introduction to your machine. The book is written and edited by professional journalists and writers and, through the use of diagrams, colour photographs, programs, entertaining examples and informative appendices, it takes you, in a clear and painless way, from the elements of computing through to mastery of your machine.

From the standard 48k machine, which is an ideal computer for the beginner, you can, if you wish, upgrade to a fully fledged business system running applications software under CP/M. Whether it is games or word-processing, the Lynx takes it all in its stride! If you want to understand what your Lynx is really capable of doing, then this is the book for you.
