COMPUTE! Magazine Collection Now on www.COMMODORE.ca

Post by administrator »

After MANY hours of work (with many many more to go) we have begun posting the complete Compute! mangazine collection. This content has been scanned into PDF form and "character recognized" so it is fully indexed and text searchable. Metatag data has also been added to assist with searches.

These are LARGE files averaging 40MB. This will cost us a lot of money in bandwidth and they will cost YOU alot of time and bandwidth. Soooo, if you want more than one or two, please PURCHASE a full set on DVD for just $9.95 from http://stores.ebay.com/Sithies-Strategy ... 4340.l2563

Many of these issues were MORE than 100MB so I broke those into mutliple files. Typically, there are 3 files for every issue.

Enjoy! http://www.commodore.ca/gallery/magazin ... e-1-43.htm

Ok... after much trial and error, I think we have a layout which will be both practical and visually interesting:

We have added large colour images of each Compute! cover. They are large enough at 260 pixels for you to read them and small enough for us to display in a 3 column table.

This is going to be expensive in bandwidth so I have added some GoogleAds on throughout the page. If you download something, please click a link. It is not much but that money does help with the expenses. This is definately a money losing operation but I will pay that bill because think it is important to keep the history acurrate to stop Apple from having no oposition to their continual re-write.

Right now, I am uploading the first 34 issues, which is everything from 1979 through about 1983. More will come soon.

I have all of the magazines and covers processed and moved onto the site. All that is left is to post links to them and last night I surpassed issue 100 of Compute! I have another 70 to go but I am out of time for a while.

Next will be Ahoy! and Compute Gazette.
