HOME HINTS SAVE TIME
WANT to know what you have in your freezer? No longer do you have to get up, open the freezer, and have a look. All you have to do is type in a simple five and a half page program - originally written for the Dragon 32 - and then, every time you freeze another batch of leftover spinach you can enter it into your freezer file.
You don't own a freezer? Well, there are a lot more exciting things to do with your micro explained in Practical Uses for the Microcomputer in the Home by David Hole. David has written 14 staggering programs for bored technophiles seeking a more credible way of justifying their computer.
How about a television directory? Enter in the times and channels of your favourite television programmes. There are some excellent magazines such as Radio Times and TV Times which print those. Buy the magazines, type in the data, and then whenever you want to know when Wogan is on the box you can turn off the telly, plug in your Spectrum, and find out, liberating the magazines you bought for use as cat litter.
On the other hand, you might want to use the book for cat litter and keep the magazines.
