Free Usborne books

While I know that most of these are not directly targeted at Oric users, I thought people might still be interested in these for nostalgic reasons.

Usborne's computer programming books from the 1980's are now FREE to download.

Oh yes.
All those books where so fun to read.
I've learned a lot of things with those books.
I am at this moment learning machine code language : simple approach, very well adapted.

Thanks for letting us know. Apparently some basic programs are Oric-compatible ;)

Some are definetly good start for interesting games, they just need some cosmetical changes (graphics, characters redefinitions, etc...) to give them a bit of sex appeal.
