2 x More Acorn Promo vids

Hi all

I am able to offer a further two Acorn promotional videos for download:

Archimedes Promo (10 mins, MPEG-1/VCD, 100Mb)
Mirror 1: http://www.filefactory.com/file/f1eea4/
Mirror 2:

Thanks to Pete Turnbull, who loaned me his tape for transfer.

Making IT Work (20 mins, MPEG-1/VCD, 202Mb)
Mirror 1: http://www.filefactory.com/file/12d1d9/
Mirror 2:

A much later promo (1995) presented by Judith Hann, of Tomorrow's World 

My thanks to Paul Klintworth, who sent this video all the way from Canada!

If you can't get the above 'freebie' downloads to work, then standard 
links can be found on http://www.acornpreservation.org (but please use the
free file-hosting services if possible, to conserve my bandwidth).

I've also created a heavily-compressed (15Mb) xVid version of the Archie
promo, for PC/MAC users who may be on dial-up:

And finally, here's a higher-quality (100Mb) xVid version of the Archimedes 
one, again for PC/MAC users:

If you missed them the first time around, the following four videos are
already available for download at http://www.acornpreservation.org :

* Micro News Part 1 - Using Archimedes
* Micro News Part 2 - Archimedes A Technical Introduction
* A3000 - The Learning Curve
* The Home Computer Minefield

In all cases, I can provide MPEG-2 (i.e. DVD quality) versions on DVD-R, for 
the cost of blank media and return postage. Just contact me at dllm AT usa 
DOT net (don't use my ntlworld address as I only check it once a month)

Cheers and HNY!

It kinda makes you expect a cut to '... And this is
the Archimedes design team !'. All swinging to that
funky tune.

But, alas, it never came. :-(

IMHO, the Making IT Work video is disappointing. It was made after the 
Risc PC came out in the 1994 and the message is essentially a pretty 
poor "well we've always been using Acorns so we should continue". Given 
the onslought of Windows at the time, it was hardly a compelling video.
