Atom Users Group Canada Newsletters ("Oak Leaves")

Hi all,

I finally got around to scanning and OCR'ing the newsletters I discovered among some old papers. Here they are in all of their dot-matrix glory.

I'm not 100% confident in the OCR quality so please double-check any code that you may be copying and pasting from the PDF. Also be aware that they did publish erratas so if code in an early edition catches your eye, be sure to look for any corrections in later issues.

Enjoy!


Peter

Thanks for doing this!

While I'm geeking out to the very old-school dot-matrix typography (no descenders!) it's going to make the OCR very difficult

Funny, I expected that the consistency of dot-matrix would make OCR more reliable, but I'm no expert.

Anyway, I'm happy to have been able to contribute something to the forum!

I came across a bunch of sprites I drew up on graph paper and remembered that I had been programming a game along the lines of Berserk. Since I didn't have a printer I have no hard copy of the code but perhaps the original tape is in my dad's stash. (Sorry, still haven't made the trip to grab the Atom and paraphernalia)

This is awesome, Oak Leaves, wondering if related to Oak microwave, also in the GTA ( greater Toronto area). I sold them a program I wrote. Very cool. I will download and read all 8. Cheers. Thanks for digging these up.
