Cover mounted disk

It was published in the UK by Argus Specialist Publications[1] which also published the Your Commodore. It was aimed at Commodore users who had a 1541 disk drive and did not want to have to type in program listings.[2] It also meant that larger programs could be included with the magazine. Initially, an issue of the magazine was published every two months but after two years, it became monthly.[2]

The magazine survived until the end of 1991. The last issue (number 36) was cover dated October 1991.[2] Copies were scanned into in 2011.[2]
