Sadly they're missing the two issues I don't own. I do own the other four they are missing. I've been meaning to scan these up at some point. Doing them at work might be an idea (nice big flat glass) but we're moving office next week, so it would have to wait a couple of weeks at least there.

I bought all these at the time they came out and had the full set. Sadly, all my computer mags got recycled when we moved house 25 years ago :(

Strangely, things in binders escaped the recycle treatment (we collected a lot of the weekly/monthly publications such as 'The Home Computer Course' and 'Country Companion'). Should have put my Commodore mags in a binder eh!

Still, we've waited 4 years for the ones that are available so a few more weeks won't kill us :)

7 issues now scanned and online.

Can anyone post screen shots of all of the issue or at least all the issues you own?

Trying to figure out the correct order of the first few issues.

01-00 Issue 0 This is referenced on page 20 in Issue 01-02. The 2nd part of a tutorial.

01-01 Issue is labeled First Issue
01-02 1981 Christmas
01-03 1982 Feb
01-04 1982 Apr
01-05 1982 Jun
01-06 1982 Aug

02-01 1982 Oct
02-02 ?
02-03 1983 Feb
02-04 1983 Mar
02-05 ?
02-06 1983 Aug

I know Golan stated there were only twelve issues total, but it appears there may be 13.

Must admit, I'm unaware of this "01-00" issue.

As for the other twelve issues, I own all of them bar 01-02 (which is scanned) and 02-06 (still missing). The issues are still at my folks (as are quite a lot of other magazines and Commodore bits) so I'll have to go there to retrieve them for starters. How I could scan them is another matter...

Thanks so much for your effort :) . I'll make good use of domestic optical fiber cable connection and download everything.. as soon as I get back home from the seaside :P . Meanwhile, could someone point me to the issue where the Arfon Micro expansion is reviewed? I've read in a late issue that AM went out of business, and that the expansion was "reviewed earlier on these pages".

@DLH This is just a typo.

It is the second part of an article 'Anyone Can Program' in issue 01_01 (pages 6 & 7).

I have obtained a copy of Vic Computing Vol2 Issue6 and scanned it. I have emailed 2 archive sites to see if they are interested. It is uploaded to google drive for now. File size 284Mb

Many thanks for this. :D

Never thought I would ever have the full set of these mags again - albeit in digital format.

So many thanks to everyone who contributed to this archive. :D
