    With Acorn CP/M, side 1 is track 159-80.

    Figured someone can find yet another strange way. Generally
    for every general case there will be plethora of yet another oddball
    wacked out scheme.

    With that It's rare that I write in to "always" and "never" because
    there is always an exception no matter how far off the beaten track
    one has to go to find it.

    That said with tongue firmly in cheek and all smiles.

    The good news is that CP/M can work with most any of them.
