  2. BYTE Vol 09-10 1984-09 Computer Graphics - 536 Pages 355,337,203 bytes Looking at the features I am guessing there was a plan to do a theme on the floppy disk that was abandoned. Luckily they decided to publish these articles anyway in a features sections - they were very interesting reads.. Must read: The review on the Lilith personal computer.. This was a project by Niclaus Wirth (creator of Pascal and Modula 2) after he spent a sabbatical in Xerox Parc in the mid 70's. When he returned to Europe he began work from scratch on a widows/mouse based system which was built and used in the late 70's and early 80's and began selling to the public in 1984. Wirth spent another Sabatical at Xerox Parc in 1985 and did a complete redesign of his system shortly thereafter and the Oberon and Ceres computer systems were born.

  3. "He" said that after I mentioned uploading old stuff to a BBS years ago so the BS chances were high.. I did check through his listings, with a few exceptions (which are newer so immaterial) he has them divided out by the collection he downloaded them from and there were no collections from differently named sources that are not already available. Sure would have been nice to see a Dark Side of The Moon or Inglewood Forest directory.. hope springs eternal but this particular collection is a bust so I won't be concerning myself with it correct.
  4. Oh and here I was hoping you were going to notice I let up on the post processing on the color pages...

  6. Can you tell us the date range of the current notes and atari interface mags that you have? I have 80+ of the current notes magazines but the first issue I have is dated 1984 (volume 4 so presumably they go back as far as 1981).
  7. Hmm. I went through the list this morning.. With this link and the other links in this thread I don't see much on the provided list that is not already available with a few clicks (I did not go through the entire list in detail).. I also took the games in his list that started with the letter "A" and could find nothing that was not already in the atarimania archive.. Though there were over 50 in Atarimania that were not it his list (I stopped looking at 50). A similar archive for someone who just wants a lot of Atari material could be put together over a weekend if someone wanted to commit to doing a lot of downloading. Maybe its time to make one... looking at the printed material that was missed that is readily available and adding it would probably put it in the 40 gig range to start... That's assuming the 23 Gig mentioned in the original post is correct. I'd love the meta data that atarimania has but baring that at least there would be a complete archive. There is some real work involved in organizing and removing duplicates (the list provided was rife with them) so that new finds could be added and specific nuggets removed.
  8. While I was renaming the kilobaud I saw another book I had scanned but not posted that was already uploaded to the site.. So new bonus! OS-9 Color Computer Technical Manual - 1,116 pages 220,004,884 Bytes This is the OS-9 manual for the Color computer... I have been able to find it on other sites but the quality is quite bad (scanned from when bandwidth was more at a premium) plus the one I scanned had an additional 300 pages.. I think this could be shrunk down further without much perceptible loss.. Cover Download it here: http://www.strikequick.com/scans/other/OS-9 Color Computer Technical Manual.pdf
  9. Excellent! Thanks you much sir! I made the change and uploaded the modified mag so the link now points to the new mag. I wasn't sure what I had for Kilobaud, been a while.. Looks like most of the issue up through number 81 but 7-12 are missing... Hard to collect this mag as the name changed three time during its run. Anyway. thanks! Don't suppose you have #23 scanned and ready? I have that one and #73 (has a vic-20 on the cover) sliced up and ready to scan next and they have similar artistic donations to the covers. --- A quick blurb on bandwidth: My monthly bandwidth is measured mid month (15th to the 15th). For this last period the BYTE bandwidth was just short of a terabyte (955 Gigs) still not a whisper from godaddy... maybe there is a BYTE fan lurking amongst them
  10. True.. Since this thread started atarimania has added 1 new atari 8-bit book, 1 new 8-bit program, 21 new ST dumps, 6 new magazines, 4 new manuals .. I hope someday they build a local interface for the database they have been building for years and sell it on a USB drive.. That would be worth more that 20 bucks to me even without the binaries. To the OP: You keep saying good bye, it's like watching a bad actors death seen as he flops around the room for 20 minutes after being shot... Go start your site and good luck on making that mint.
  11. Who said stolen? (I mean beside you) Where is the link? I want to get some of this extra stuff you said was there...
  12. I think hes just trolling at this point... I'm assuming he is talking about bombjack.. the atari section has a combined total of 18 documents.
  13. Come on... There are 138 (8-bit) books in just the "books" section... that doesn't even count the manuals (another 130) technical documents (another 30) all for free download this is the 8-bit only section so it is not counting the ST.. They are pushing 1000 Atari magazine/newsletters. If they have more Atari material it is because they took from that site and added one - how can you put a negative spin on that?? Please post the commodre link...
