THE DRAGON USERS SUPPORT PAGES

The NDUG was probably one of the oldest user groups in the UK, offering world wide support for Dragon users, and its clone the Tandy Coco2. Both of these computers were based on the early 8-bit Motorola 6809 chip, the forerunner of the family of chips which have appeared in numerous computers including both the Amiga and the Macintosh.These pages provide details of the Group which finally folded in April 2000, support is still available for Dragon users, however and details can be found on these pages. Finally, information on relevant Websites and support groups, including OS9 groups, are listed on the LINKS page.


Details of some of the services still available are: -

DRAGON PROGRAMS AS 'VIRTUAL' DISKS or CASSETTES

to a CD, or Online here. I have, however, given all my Dragon hardware and software to Simon Hardy, who is in the process of putting the software online in his Dragon Archive. Address is www.dragon-archive.co.uk
