Psion handheld computers were my first true love when it came to computing devices: portable and relatively affordable, they allowed you to code whenever, and wherever, you wanted.

Gaining information on these miraculous devices was difficult however. Without ready access to the internet, we relied on services such as Steve Litchfield’s 3-Lib for access to software, and magazines such as Palmtop and Psion’s own Psion User for our news.

While the 3-Lib shareware library is still available online, it’s hard to find copies of the print media. With a view to improving things slightly, I’ve scanned my three copies of Psion user and uploaded them to

If anyone has other editions (or publications) they’re willing to donate to the cause, I’m happy to scan and upload more: just drop me an email or tweet.
