This is where we keep track of who is scanning what, so we can avoid duplicating work and also define conventions/standards etc

Everyday Electronics - BBC & electron projects

Postby algenon_iii » Wed Dec 09, 2009 10:56 am

I've got a few issues of Everyday Electronics with BBC Micro/electron projects in them. Off the top of my head: speech synth, electron userport, disco light controller, lightpen plus a few more.

If I've got the time and people are interested I might be able to get the projects scanned over Christmas (it'll take my mind off the left over turkey :wink:).

My only real concern is that unlike the old 8-bit computer mags Everyday Electronics is still being published so I don't want people (including myself) to be sent nasty letters from lawyers, any thoughts :?:

Why not email them and ask if its ok

Here is the link http://www.epemag3.com/index.php?option=com_contact&Itemid=3

seeing as they are 20 to 25 years old I wouldnt of thought they would mind but you may have to also ask the actual authors as well.

on a side note is the elk user port project for a twin or single port one as I can remember a twin one back in the day.

I was thinking about contacting them, I might send them an initial email before I dig out issue numbers and what have you.

Knowing what copyright agreements can be like for periodicals chances are there won't be any need to contact the original author (you often give away the sole right to print, publish and sell).

I've been gradually going through my Everyday Electronics collection scanning and cleaning up BBC related stuff as well, mainly concentrating on MIDI stuff like this.
