Does anyone know if Antarctic Computing, a NZ company, was writing software or just a distributor? There is no information to be found about them or their titles on the net. As always, post something on here and wait long enough and someone is sure to stumble across the post with a bit of inside knowledge....

From the companies office it was struck off in 1989

This is to certify that ANTARCTIC COMPUTING LIMITED was incorporated under the Companies Act 1955 as a Private Company (Shares) on the 18th day of May 1983
and was removed from the register on the 19th day of July 1989.

I have checked the one title of there's I have too hand "ZX WORD for the ZX81" but there is nothing inside it. I should load the instructions and check. I'm sure I've got some more of their tapes around here somewhere so will keep an eye out for further info.
