TI-Artist Plus+ is gonna be a bitch to do. The scan Ralf put up is the same as the one I have - muddy - especially in the middle.

Probably true, but remember we'll love you for doing it!  :) 

Since it'll be the best quality version available, it'll be the copy that survives for future generations and historians to enjoy, so be sure to sign your work!   :thumbsup:

Photoshop helps clear the mud away.

RickyDean-
Most of the files I am attempting to manipulate are in .max format or Paperport. I can clean the mud out of the file, the problem is the text is muddied up as well and the ocr conversion is pretty useless. I have found a cleaner scanned hard copy of TIA+ so I am going to rescan and see if we can get a usable file.

Attached File  TIA PLUS+.pdf   2.43MB   22 downloads

Was not able to convert to text with OCR - which pissed me off. I scanned a cleaner "copy" of the manual - copied all pages to jpg - converted to Paperport .max files - cleaned the pages up as best I could in PaperPort - Copied and pasted into Irfanview - printed to pdf using Acrobat distiller then assembled what you see here. The Readme file mentioned in the manual is at the end. Not as good as I wanted, but better than we had.

Attached File  Microdex Publication Index.pdf   150.17KB   14 downloads

Very useful file for looking up information from publications.

I ran all of them through TI Base and sent the printout to my PC, Then merged all files into Word, sorted them, cleaned up the formatting, Made up a cover page and then printed to pdf.

The only bad part is the MICROpendium parts only go to 1988.

I think there was another companion file that came out for use with MICROdex that covered all MICROpendium issues until it's demise. If anyone has this and could upload here, I can revamp this file to include them. This would make the file even more useful.

I am currently working on the catalog of disks and content for the PLATO system. It is from a SS/SD disk that was supposed to print to a parallel printer.
I printed to disk a dv/80 file and then converted that file so that a PC running word would be happy. Once I'm done - I will create a pdf. The beauty of it is it "should" turn out to be a searchable pdf. 

Is there any interest here fro me to upload when I'm done?

 

The file is HUGE and I'm having to do quite a bit of reformatting to make it read better. But I'm getting there.

 

I try to run some PLATO stuff pretty frequently to keep my sparse brain cells firing.
