WELCOME
e'r
e always
extolling the virtues of
hard
drives
here
at
Amiga Shopper,
and
with
good reason too. Those of
you who, like me, can remember
using home computers with cassette tape-based
storage will also remember the amazing difference
that first disk drive made. Believe me, your first
hard drive
is
a similar advance
in
productivity.
It's all very well for owners of the A500 and
A2000, who can buy plenty of drives off
the
shelf,
but finding a drive for an A600 or A1200 is a little
more complicated, or has been until now. Starting
on page 14 is an article that will put paid to this
-
it
tells
you
everything
you need to choose, fit and
use an IDE hard drive.
The
hardware
theme
continues with the
new
series on page 56,
DIY Hardware Repairs.
Let's
face it, with your warranty out of date and your
machine broken you could be
looking
at a nasty
repair bill. But why pay, when the chances are it's
a simple fault that you could easily fix yourself? Go
on, take a look
...
It's
not
all about hardware this month, of
course. We've finally bowed to public demand and

tutorial.
It
assumes a basic
knowledge of
programming, nothing
more, and whisks you
right
along until you're
opening libraries and
moving sprites.
Complementing it
is
a
public domain
assembler and
linker
on
the cover disk, along with source code for the
examples, naturally. In fact, we've saved you quite
a bit
of
typing this month, since
just
about every
example program appearing in the magazine is
also on the disk, and that's not to mention all the
lovely,
lovely utilit
ies
we've crammed on as well.
