Some submissions and some problems
« on: June 21, 2011, 05:21:32 PM »

With that out of the way, on to the problems.

(1) Is there anything specific I should be modifying / altering in these files (e.g. straightening images, removing stuff like "Created with EasyPDF Creator", etc.)

(2) Magazines which change name halfway through a print run. For example, "COMX News" magazine for the COMX35 was "COMX-35 Newsbulletin" for the first four issues of volume one and then "COMX News" until end of publishing. Here's how I've named the first issue, not sure if this is right: "COMX News - Jaargang 01, No. 01 (1984-01)(Frensen, Gerard)(NL)[COMX-35 Newsbulletin]".

(3) Multi-format software and hardware. For example, I have a bunch of manuals for hardware for S-100 bus systems. That is, disk drives, RAM modules, etc. which can be used with any S-100 bus microcomputer (for example the Altair 8800 and the Cromemco Z-1). I have been tentatively putting these into "Multi-format - Hardware - S-100", but I'm not really sure what to do with them. Same situation with manuals for CP/M software, for example.

Edited to add:

(4) Just ran across this in a manual for the Olivetti M20. "Terza Edizione: Febbraio 1983", "Primo Aggiornamento: Giugno 1983". According to my friend Google Translate, these mean "Third Edition" and "First Update" respectively. To this point, I've been naming various editions of stuff as follows: "M20 Personal Computer - Linguaggio BASIC - Manuale Generale, 3rd ed. (1983-02)(Olivetti)(IT)". Not sure how to include this "update" in the name. "M20 Personal Computer - Linguaggio BASIC - Manuale Generale, 3rd ed. (1983-06)(Olivetti)(IT)[primo aggiornamento / first update]". maybe?
