The Computer Cookbook

General software. From trouble with the Banyan Tree to OCP Art Studio, post any general software chat here. Could include game challenges...

Ok, ok, I'm leaving...

I saw an advert for Amazon Alexa where it was reading out recipes, and I thought to myself we had something similar in the 1980s!

You've reminded me - I did a cgc game in 2016 that had a help assistant listing recipes: Vegetarian is Fun!

CGC 2016 is still not collated though, so there's no file or screenshots yet. That's a job for next year :-)

It looks like we have another cookbook!

Moja Gospodinjska Pomocnica (My housekeep in Slovenian).

The book comes with a tape of recipes apparently. Shame it's mia, a I don't have many 1980's Slovenian receipes in my repertoire.

And it's got the best cover ever! Looks like a MM/JSW inlay.

Please stop posting links to old computer magazines!!! I've just spent 45 minutes, yes 45 minutes trawling through them :lol: :lol:
Don't worry.
Just doesn't make sense.
You are doomed already.
You were doomed since you created your account here.
You were doomed since you surfed to this URL.
You were doomed since the thought crossed your mind that the Spectrum could be more than recycling bin fuel.
DOOOOOMD!!!!!

'Relax,' said the night man,
'We are programmed to receive.
You can check-out any time you like,
But you can never leave!'



Oh! And just to be on topic again

So I called up the Captain,

Looks like it's here:
https://archive.org/details/zx_Kuhajmo_ ... Student_sl

@R-Tape Could we add it to the database?

EDIT: And it's here:
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 96&id=9235
So a book somehow needs to be linked to the tape. And maybe the entry adjusted. I don't know if it's possible in ZXDB.

Thanks Ralf. I've no idea how to do that. I'll see if the others do when I send my stuff for the next update.

It could be my poor Slovenian, but it looks like the snapshot is missing the actual recipes. Perhaps they get loaded from another tape?
