Re: Missing Magazines from the 80s

Does anyone have a copy of "Personal Computing Today" from February 1985?
I am attempting to type in "Pontoon" but the quality of the listing on the archive.org copy is terrible.
https://archive.org/details/PersonalCom ... 5/page/n50
Anyone have a better one?

Re: Help OCRing magazine listings

I have now typed in all the games from the 1983 Spring edition of Personal Software, so no need for the OCRing.
Just debugging them now.....

Re: Missing Magazines from the 80s

Hi John, I'm glad it rained :D It is interesting to note that Argus Press seemed to have a habit of publishing games commercially, then printing the listing in one of their mags. Sometimes they would print a listing, and then sell it commercially :wink: Asteroid Lander and Pete the plastered postman...

Copying and pasting just gives garbage.
It's OK, I will type them in.
