New legit PDFs of Usborne's old computer books - how things work, how to program. Including "Machine Code for Beginners" and "Write Your Own Adventure Programs." Note:"These books were written for 1980s computers such as the ZX Spectrum and BBC Micro. The programs will not run on modern computers."

"Usborne 1980s computer books - Many of today's tech professionals were inspired by the Usborne computing books they read as children. The books included program listings for such iconic computers as the ZX Spectrum, the BBC Micro and the Commodore 64, and are still used in some computer clubs today. If you'd like to download a free copy of any of these books, just click on a cover."

"If you’ve ever observed steam rising off your hot beverage, that’s actually arising from the hottest, most energetic molecules inside entering the gaseous phase, condensing back into rising liquid droplets as the cool air above interacts with them. (Which is why, if you put your nose above a steaming cup of coffee, it comes out not just hot, but also wet!)"

Particularly in the dead of winter, most of us enjoy a hot drink, whether it’s coffee, tea, hot chocolate or soup. But if that drink is too hot, your options for cooling it down are unsatisfying: wait for the room to cool it, which takes forever, drop an ice cube in, which waters down your drink, or blow on it. While blowing on your drink may seem ineffective, as the breath inside your body is generally warmer than the ambient air, there’s an additional feature that makes blowing on it totally worth it: the circulation and exposure-to-air of the hot fluid vastly increases the rate of evaporation, taking the highest-kinetic-energy molecules out of the equation and cooling your drink more quickly.
From coffee to hot chocolate to soup, hot beverages are a staple of winter. But no one wants it scalding! Blowing on your hot drink cools it down, but not the way you think.

If the people at Disney have anything to say about it, the past four decades of Star Wars were merely prologue.

Excellent wrap up of a cult classic.
Hi, long time lurker, first time poster. I've spent about a year now exploring the Amiga Format and I've had a blast. Today, getting into Amiga gaming is easier than it's ever been, and I'm of the opinion that it's a style of retro gaming that is worth looking into. I make no secret on this site ...
