Loius Gubernatis Tape (Side 1) Loius Gubernatis Tape (Side 2) Loius Gubernatis Tape

Paul Thacker found a lot of programs like this on Louis Gubernatis' tape. They're presentations and promotions for something called the McCormick Light Street Safety Committee, and were probably written by Louis Gubernatis for this organization.

Paul Thacker commented on September 25, 2012, "The 'Louis Gubernatis' tape started with Duck Hunter, an unpublished Arcadian submission. I think I scanned a letter about that one. But the rest of the tape had more programs, including some not by Louis, like Spinning Wheel, some that I assume were by him, and some that I'm not sure. I think he just put the submission on a tape he'd been using before to type in newsletter programs and his own personal programs, not that he was actually submitting everything."

Z80 Minicourse (Side 1) Z80 Minicourse (Side 2) Z80 Minicourse (Top) Z80 Minicourse
By Larry Simioni

Paul Thacker notes, on November 19, "Hmmm...Mike White's software list says the author of the Z-80 Minicourse is Barry Ellerson. And I checked one of the sources given, Arcadian volume 4, issue 7, page 69, and it says this as well. Probably based on the software list, the software page says this too:
http://www.ballyalley.com/program_downloads/300_baud_programs/misc/misc.html
I agree, though, that the signature on the instructions looks like Simioni, and nothing like Ellerson. The first name I am less sure about, though if I were only looking at the signature I would say Larry as well. I suppose it is conceivable that the programs and manual were written by different people.
