Microlink
« on: 22:26, 02 October 15 »
Does anyone know what Microlink is? Was it a prestel like service?

On a disc I've borrowed there is some kind of weather program, writing by Philip T Lawson for Microlink in 1988.

Program gives an error when run :(

I believe it was a bulletin board system run by a company that produced modems. There's a manual for one of their products on the wiki. File:Microlink.pdf - CPCWiki

Interesting. It seems it was like Telecom Gold. There is mention of an on-line adventure game too.
