The proposed name is "comp.sys.cpc". This will cover every subject related to the CPC and will not be moderated.  I would appreciate a response from anyone with comments on this matter. Send follow-ups to "news.announce.newgroups" and "comp.os.cpm".  The CPC is an 8-bit machine, three models of which were produced by the British company Amstrad. It is based around a Z80 processor and has 64k of directly accessible memory, which can be expanded to 576k. The CPC Emulator is available in the Emulators directory of the Simtel20 archives/mirrors as CPCEMU09.ZIP. It requires a 386 or above with VGA to run. --  +---------------------------------------------+ | Those were some words of wisdom (?) from... | |     David Long: [email protected]      | +---------------------------------------------+  From [email protected] Tue May 31 16:06:50 1994 Path: uunet!bounce-back From: [email protected] (Emmanuel Roussin) Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups,news.groups,comp.os.cpm,comp.sys.misc,comp.sys.sinclair Subject: RFD: comp.sys.amstrad.8bit Followup-To: news.groups Date: 31 May 1994 15:50:21 -0400 Organization: UUNET Communications Lines: 75 Sender: [email protected] Approved: [email protected] Message-ID: <[email protected]> NNTP-Posting-Host: rodan.uu.net Xref: uunet news.announce.newgroups:5137 news.groups:105299 comp.os.cpm:10033 comp.sys.misc:5418 comp.sys.sinclair:4540                          REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION            Group Name:  comp.sys.amstrad.8bit              Status:  unmoderated        Distribution:  world-wide             Summary:  Discussions about CPC and PCW hardware/software         Proposed by:  David Long       ([email protected])                       Marco Vieth      ([email protected])                       Emmanuel Roussin ([email protected])   ******************************************************************   NOTE: This is similar to the original RFD: comp.sys.cpc, posted on March 25th, except that :        -- the proposed name has been changed to comp.sys.amstrad.8bit         to avoid messages from PC users        -- the newsgroup if created, will be relayed on BBS :            * genesis : the 8bit generation, FIDO 2:320/220              this french BBS will open this summer,            * Aspects BBS, FIDO 2:250/107 in U.K.         Expect other BBS in the future, we are looking for a bbs in         Germany.        -- FTP sites with CPC files :           * ftp.demon.co.uk in /pub/cpm, specific Amstrad CP/M files,             thanks to Paul Martin           * ftp.nvg.unit.no (very soon), thanks to Arnt Gulbrandsen   The changes were made as the result of on-line discussion.   The CFV should start around the 15th june, before people loose their access by going to summer holidays, and will call for votes on "comp.sys.amstrad.8bit". The original proposer WITHDRAWS the proposed name "comp.sys.cpc" in favor of "comp.sys.amstrad.8bit".   ********************************************************************   This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) on the subject of creating an unmoderated Usenet newsgroup, comp.sys.amstrad.8bit   CHARTER   The proposed unmoderated newsgroup comp.sys.amstrad.8bit will be open to discussions about the Amstrad CPC (464, 664, 6128, 464+, 6128+), PCW (8256, 8512, 9512).   Appropriate topics would include, but not be limited to :            - CPC/PCW hardware, software,            - CPCEMU, the CPC emulator from Marco Vieth, currently v1.0 at            oak.oakland.edu in /SimTel/msdos/emulator/CPCEMU10.ZIP,            - specific Amstrad CP/M files, overlays...              etc...     The only topic that is excluded is:           discussion of Amstrad PC-compatible (1512, 1640, 2x86, 3x86...)     This RFD is posted to comp.os.cpm, comp.sys.sinclair and uk.misc in addition to news.groups.   This is NOT a call for votes.  A Call For Votes (CFV) will be posted around the 15th june for comp.sys.amstrad.8bit and will be conducted by an independent third party.   Note the follow-up to news.groups.  The format for this RFD is indirectly stolen from the RFD for comp.langs.mumps, thanks to Daniel P. B.
