Contacting the Archive

I started this site to collect all the Jupiter ACE information, software, photos, magazine articles and present it as one resource, free for all to use. The goal is to preserve and to archive all Jupiter ACE material, before this information is lost forever.

You can help! If you have any material that you think should be archived such as, magazine program listings, Tape inlays, cassette body scans, Cassette programs as wav files, and would like to contribute, you can just upload the files or email it to us and we will do the rest. Check our wanted list. Full credits are given in the credits page, for the people who have helped with this project.

Where does the material come from?

Most is donated to the site by people like you! Some we source from on-line auction sites. We browse old book shops for Forth Books and old computer magazines. We write to contacts in old software adverts. We also create new software and hardware and when we can encourage others to get involved to write new software titles. None of the material, scans, tap files, on the site to be sold or downloaded to a DVD and resold. A number of copyright holders have given permission for there material be listed and archived by this project alone and must not be sold as shareware or on compilation DVD/CDs and websites.
