I was wondering what had happened to Mike Lord, who founded the British Amateur Computer Club (ACC) in 1973. I couldn't find any trace of him via Google, but I did find this site with many of the Club's newsletters:
They make interesting reading.
I must have joined the ACC in 1977, the newsletters look familiar. Following Mike's resignation a few years later, and a rather poor choice of editor, I offered to edit the newsletter, and did that for a year or so. I then became chairman for a year. I think it folded a year or two later because building computers at home fell out of favour.
