The Dutch User Group Neptunes Productions

Read some interesting words written by one of the founders of Neptunes Productions ( Mark de Rover / Netherlands ):

Well, I founded Neptunes Software in about 1985 / 1986. I mostly built small applications and games. Games like "Galgje", "The Wall", "Zombo" and more.

After a while my brother ( Jeroen ) and I decided that the Basic language was kind of crappy, so we did some expanding... We integrated a tape-speed selector, bitmaps ( sprites ) and more gadges. We put all this in Neptunes Basic.

After a few years I met Arjan Habing via a mutual friend. Arjan was also very active in the SHARP world. We started to talk and ( as far as I can recall ) Arjan told me he wanted to write a book. So, we decided to write it together and use my firm to publish it. So he joined the firm and we renamed it to Neptunes Productions.

Arjan did most of the writing ( by far ) and he was the driving force behind the book. At the time I was getting very busy with other things and decided I had to quit.

You'll find the cover of the book which Mark is talking about below. The book will be available for download in Dutch and English as soon as possible. The translation is in progress by a Dutch fan.
