Gaaaaaa! Well crap.. I had taken the last few pages out and rescanned them after finishing it originally, I don't know what happened I specifically remember adding them back.. I'm going through the other finished mags hoping I somehow put them in the wrong PDF but so far no luck .. This mag and a couple others had some water damage and I did some extra processing to clean it up. I've toned it down for color pages for future scans but there are a few in the pipeline that are already done. On some of the later mags toning it down leaves a lot of bleed through.

 

On the reader cards and inserts: I pull them out mainly because they are basically the same in all issues.. I remember I left them in for Antic and wondered if a single person would ever find it useful.. The same thought (should I be leaving these in) goes through my head each time I chop one up... Some of the later one there can be 10 or so cards that get junked.

BYTE Vol 10-09 1985-09 10th Anniversary Issue

 

Plus an article on expanding an Atari 800XL to 256K.

 

 

Working with BYTE was the greatest experience. My editor was enthusiastic but professional. (See just how good he was and read my submitted draft: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/122470-ram-upgrade-applications/page-2?do=findComment&comment=1496872 ). They sent proofs, a nice check, and comp copies. The only downside was the long lead time - nine months! By then Atari had come out with the 130XE and a different banking scheme. Ugh.

Bonus magazine!

 

Kilobaud Issue #21 1978-09 - 166 Pages 110,061,050 bytes

I have been trying to pare down my collection as of late .. Currently just mags where I have duplicates but the rest later on.. Anyway some of these dup mags are in too bad of shape to sell so sadly they are being foistered on you the public in digital form before passing from this Earth so as to ease some of my guilt in throwing them away.

This is issue #21 of Kilobaud magazine... For those that do not know the story "Kilobaud" was originally going to be called "KiloByte" and was started by the same person that started BYTE. when he and his wife parted ways she took control of BYTE. When the (then) current BYTE people found out about "KiloByte" they quickly trademarked it for a comic strip than ran inside of byte, so "KiloByte" was instead named "KiloBaud"

I will post a few more of these magazines (and some others) as time goes on.. Interesting magazine. The cover is also the table of contents.

Here is a "clean" scan of that cover. At one time, I had a good chunk of the early kilobauds. #7 to #41. Alas, I no longer have them, but I did scan the covers.

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 :)

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..

Yep, sure do. You may want to add some contrast to these if you want to use them, they scanned a little light.

Also, I have raw scans of most of the covers of the entire Byte run. Again, at one time, I had about 3/4 of the run (bought from a library) and scanned the covers. If you need any, let me know.

Summa'bitch! Did I see a reader-service card in the last scan?

 

Oh and here I was hoping you were going to notice I let up on the post processing on the color pages... :)

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.

First of all, thanks for all of your hard work, ThumpNugget.

 

FYI, there are eight pages missing between pages 348 through 361.

Thank you ThumpNugget for the effort you put in to scan these issues.

 

I have finally unearthed my collection of BYTE and made a proper inventory of issues.

 

In reply to your request for missing issues, I have the following available if you need them :

Vol 07 (1982) Missing: Sep
Vol 08 (1983) Missing: Jan, Mar, Apr, Jun, Jul, Nov
Vol 10 (1985) Missing: Feb, Mar, Dec

Please let me know (PM) if you want me to send you some as I will be discarding all when I am done creating my PDF library.

I desperately need to trim my library ! I don't have the room anymore.

 

Have a safe holiday.

Just wondering where everyone went!

Personally I forgot about it. It's been very important to me, and it was awesome each time a new scan was released, but I'm sure ThumpNugget has other priorities and when we started to see another long gap between posts of new material I just assumed that we would eventually get a digest email when ThumpNugget was back again. It looks like he may have moved on. It's too bad, I offered ThumpNugget a lot of issues of Byte over the years, but he didn't ever seriously respond to my private messages with an address to deliver them to.

I would, of course, be willing to send my Byte magazines to anybody willing to scan and upload them here. I offered to pay the postage for them to be sent to ThumpNugget, but clearly anybody else would have to earn some level of trust/proof of quality for me to make the same offer. I listed the magazines I have available in one of my posts and will repost it here when I find it.

I would do the scanning myself, but there are two factors preventing that:

1: Not owning a decent scanner, or a scanner that I'm willing to burn out the lamp life on.

2: Being too lazy - I can't even imagine the hours that ThumpNugget put in to provide the quality end result he uploaded.
