La création du newsgroup comp.sys.amstrad.8bit a été une idée de Marco Vieth et David Long du 25 mars 1994 :

Due to a considerable increase in interest in the Amstrad CPC series of machines, Marco Vieth (author of CPCEMU - a CPC emulator for the PC) and myself are interested in setting up a newsgroup devoted to this topic.

The proposed name is "comp.sys.cpc". This will cover every subject related to the CPC and will not be moderated.

I would appreciate a response from anyone with comments on this matter. Send follow-ups to "news.announce.newgroups" and "comp.os.cpm".

The CPC is an 8-bit machine, three models of which were produced by the British company Amstrad. It is based around a Z80 processor and has 64k of directly accessible memory, which can be expanded to 576k. The CPC Emulator is available in the Emulators directory of the Simtel20 archives/mirrors as CPCEMU09.ZIP. It requires a 386 or above with VGA to run.

C'est un newsgroup non modéré qui traite des ordinateurs Amstrad à base de Z80 : CPC (464, 664, 6128, 464+, 6128+), GX4000, PCW (8256, 8512, 9256, 9512, 9512+, 10, 16), NC100/150/200 et PDA-600.

La pluparts des newsgroups importants ont une FAQ (Foire aux Questions). Il s'agit d'un recueil des questions posées le plus fréquemment par les nouveaux arrivants. Cela est censé normalement d'avoir à éviter d'y répondre à chaque fois. Vous trouverez ci-dessous la FAQ de ce newsgroup en plusieurs langues, sous forme texte ou HTML.

Le résultat de la création (voir ci-dessous) du newsgroup a été postée le 28 juillet 1994 après une procédure constituée d'une discussion (RFD : Request For Discussion) et du vote (CFV : Call For Vote) qui s'est déroulé du 21 juin au 21 juillet 1994.

	unmoderated group comp.sys.amstrad.8bit passes 148:36

There were 148 YES votes and 36 NO votes, for a total of 184 valid votes.

For group passage, YES votes must be at least 2/3 of all valid (YES and NO)
votes.   There also must be at least 100 more YES votes than NO votes.

serious allegations of voting irregularities are raised, the moderator of
news.announce.newgroups will create the group shortly thereafter.

CHARTER (Proponent)

The proposed unmoderated newsgroup comp.sys.amstrad.8bit will be open
to discussions about the Amstrad CPC (464, 664, 6128, 464+, 6128+),
PcW (8256, 8512, 9256, 9512, 9512+, QUibble) and GX4000.
 
Appropriate topics would include, but not be limited to :
 
         - CPC/PcW/GX4000 hardware, software,
 
         - CPCEMU, the CPC emulator from Marco Vieth, currently v1.0 at
           oak.oakland.edu in /SimTel/msdos/emulator/CPCEMU10.ZIP
           In the future, if they are too many message about it, we will
           discuss about a comp.emulators.cpc newsgroup,
 
         - specific Amstrad CP/M files, overlays...
 
           etc...
 
 
The only topic that is excluded is:
 
        discussion of Amstrad PC-compatible (1512, 1640, 2x86, 3x86 and
        others Amstrad compatible I don't know) because these computers
        are really compatible, so comp.sys.ibm.pc.* newsgroups must be
        used.
 
 
In the future, the newsgroup could be reorganized in
comp.sys.amstrad.8bit.cpc and comp.sys.amstrad.8bit.pcw if really
needed.
 
 
The newsgroup, if created, will be relayed on BBS as not everybody can
read newsgroups, they will have also files for CPC/PcW :
 
    * genesis : the 8bit generation, FIDO 2:320/220
      this french BBS will open this summer,
    * Aspects BBS, FIDO 2:250/107 in U.K.
 
Expect other BBS in the future, we are looking for a BBS in Germany.
The BBS will take care to post valid messages, not to post dupes, etc...
 
 
FTP sites with CPC files :
 
    * ftp.demon.co.uk in /pub/cpm, specific Amstrad CP/M files,
      thanks to Paul Martin
    * ftp.nvg.unit.no (soon), thanks to Arnt Gulbrandsen
 
And perhaps a coming french site.
 
 
Sinclair and Commodore 8bit users have their own newsgroup, the CPC/PcW
were widely sold in U.K., France and Germany, also in other countries.
It's time to have now our own newsgroup to discuss about these good
computers. Nostalgia, when you hold me...
