Zorgons Revenge demo: anyone near Cambridge, UK?

Post by Symoon » Wed Jul 03, 2019 8:37 pm

Hi all,

Just wondered if anyone reading this forum lives in Cambridge, UK?

Here's why: I've been looking for Zorgons Revenge demo tape for a while now, and it appears a museum in Cambridge has the tape. I got in touch with them: they can't lend it and don't have the time to make a WAV file of it, but I've been offered to do it myself if I could visit them, or anyone from the Oric world.
As I live in France, I wondered if anyone nearby would have some spare time and would accept the mission to go there and make a WAV file of the tape, so we could make a TAP file of it and share it with Oricians?

If not I could try and go there some day, but I don't really enjoy travelling anymore - rather a painful moment for me now.

Cheers!

Jon Haworth was there. Not heard from him for a few years.

Thanks a lot for your help ;)
Here's the museum location details:
http://www.computinghistory.org.uk/page ... o-Find-Us/
From memory they are open Wednesday to Sunday

It seems they sold one copy on Ebay recently (tried to contact the buyer, to no avail), but they assure me they still have one if it's listed in their collection.

I'll PM you more details if one of your friends seems OK to volunteer ;)
Baz, on Atari Sector Forum, also agreed to try, but doesn't know when he can go there right now.

It would be great. I had never heard about a demo of Zorgons...
