Compute! Magazine Online Article Archives

I just came across an archive site for past Compute! Magazine articles at: http://www.atarimagazines.com/compute/ and was pleasantly surprised to find a number of my older articles included in their archives. Although geared for the Atari computers, there is some Commodore information included. The main website at http://www.atarimagazines.com/ has lots of classic computer magazine archives!

Here's a list of my articles they have available online with direct links:

review article from February 1981, Issue #9

from March 1981, Issue #10

review article from April 1981, Issue #11

from October 1981, Issue #17

from February 1982, Issue #21

from December 1983, Issue #43

Found a New Home and I've Been Busy!

I haven't posted for awhile since I've found a new job working with Library Automation Technologies in Somerdale, NJ. I've been working with them for over a year but officially full time as of November 2006. I'm managing their Technical Support, doing installations and service/support for their line of library self checkout systems called FlashScan. I've been busy and doing a fair amount of travel, along with helping with new product development as well. It's been fun getting my hands back into things and working with a smaller company.

For more information on the company and their products you can visit their website at: http://www.latcorp.com/ plus they have an interesting blog covering the library industry at: http://latcorp.blogspot.com/ where I'll probably be posting articles from time to time.

By the way, I've been getting so many requests for information on my old articles that my C64 Programmer's Library now includes downloadable 1541 floppydisk images in D64 format that provides the compete working programs for all the articles included -plus- the full text of all the articles on the disks so you can print or copy as needed. I typically have a copy on eBay all the time as well as on my separate website at: http://cbm.bobnj.com/
