Problem with adobe reader
I was informed that issues 50 to 64 are unreadable by some viewers, and thus
discovered that those pdfs had the page size at 200in. If you encountered this
problem, a quick solution is not downloading again, but doing this using vi:
that will globally replace the incorrect values with the smaller correct values.
All pdf's are now fixed using the above step!
The Computer Journal
In 1985 I was also the editor/publisher of "Push and Pop" the newsletter for our local computer group -
Sacramento Microcomputer Users Group - SMUG.
In May 1985 we celebrated our Tenth Year as a User Group. I published a "10th Anniversary Issue"
to comment on the anniversary and a special event celebrating our Tenth. We invited some big names
in computing at the time for an all day event. For the special issue I copied some of the pivotal pages from other
magazines that started it all in 1975. There is also a time line feature of what happened during the
past ten years. All in all it was a fun issue and I have provided it here
for your enjoyment.
