Press Cuttings

The Tronix Club is born. This ad in Home Computing Weekly, 21 July 1985 promised a lot and at least one satisfied customer responded, in the 1 October issue. I remember the rather strange flip-top pens that he refers to; unfortunately I no longer have one but you can see what they looked like
