Where can I download it? I had the scans but my computer decided it hated me and lost it for me. Bless it. Cheers.

Buy a copy of Retro Survival if you haven't, as it's on there ;)

(you also get the pages that never made it into print as well!)

I'm unemployed at the mo and really can't afford it (I'm living a beans on toast existence at the moment, seriously). I remember Rob providing the link I originally got it from, is it not still available.

Possibly, I can't recall if it might be hosted on Rob's site or here.

Now what'd be REALLY cool is a Jpeg version of 107 ;-)

Nope, I wasn't joking, I didn't know a jpeg 107 was available. Thanks man :-)

*edit* A puzzling thing: some of the scanned pages seem to have some missing letters on them (*check out pages nine and ten, especially the Elite review. Page 22; the "however" in UP's review comment is knackered, as is the last paragraph at the bottom of page 35), whereas the acrobat files are fine. Is the scanned edition from an earlier, un-proofed version?

It may well be. Craig would be the one to answer that as I got the jpgs straight from him...

Interesting!
A funny facts is, although rather irritating as well, that my hi-res pdf's which I exported to .eps (and from there to jpg's) also missed a couple of letters on different pages. I can spot them (Eagle eyed Craig as well, I'm sure -hehe) while the original pdf's are 100% ok. Weird eh?

Anyway...

So the problem is in transferring from PDF to Jpeg. Hmm...only thing I can think of is trying a different program.

*edit* Just used a prog called "Very PDF" to convert my hi-res PDF to Jpeg, and it's sorted it a treat.

Um. I guess this must be a bug in InDesign, then, because that's what I used to export the JPEGs (I was using v1.5 at the time, I think). I probably didn't notice because I'd already proofed that issue about five times and I really didn't want to read the sodding thing again, in JPEG format.

Andy—if you've fixed copies, perhaps you can send them to Iain for this site?

Yeah must be. I used InDesign CS (first edition) though.
And on different pages it left out different letters, for no reason.
And they're there in the pdf, just not in the .eps.

For example, at the bottom of this page, last line:

http://home.versatel.nl/deftributetozzap/deftributetozzap_p62.jpg

pdf was like:
...ever heard of the DEF tribute to Commodore User?)

the eps, and so the jpg reads:
...ever heard of the DEF tribute to ommodore ser...

Weird eh?
And there's more of that scattered around the files. Grrr.
