With this YT video I'm very much fielding the "B Team" here.
The original source video was recorded on the 19th of January and normally I would watch it a week or two later, note any mistakes, and then record an improved video. Normally ain't now, so all I could with this was to trim it from 12 minutes to 5 minutes using VLC media player.

Two CPM Comms programs - unfortunately as I don't have a working RS232 interface or modem (yet!) all I can show are the opening screens and a little of the HELP information but that should be enough for you to judge the  "look and feel" of them.

A good example of CPC software evolution would be to compare these two programs with this:

Not emulated - original hardware and software.
Please note that the aspect ratio for this YouTube video is 16:9 but the CPC monitor
has an aspect ratio of 4:3 so you may wish to adjust your viewing device accordingly.
