Giveaway photocopies (how great ;) )

Post by Symoon » Tue Jun 10, 2014 9:08 am

Hi,

Before trashing, one nevers knows... Would anyone be interested in photocopies (old but bound or stapled) of French things:
- manuel de l'Oric-1 (complete)
- Visa pour Oric (Soracom - complete)
- Guide de l'Oric (PSI - Philippe Bayvejiel - only chapters on graphic and sound)
- some listings from Hebdogiciel

I'll keep them until mid-July, after this... Bye-bye ;)

I'd surely love to have them, my kids are becoming type-in champions and any little snippets we can collect for them to have around the Oric station is a bonus. Can I pay for postage? PM me your details and I'll go for it.

Great!
Beware though, except Hebdogiciel, the rest are similar to Oric manuals - no type-ins.
If that's no problem, I'll mail you all this within a few weeks.

Edit: the shipping cost to UK or Austria (not sure where you're located) seems quite expensive (12.65€). I'll let you decide if it's worth it for old French papers ;)

That being said, Hebdogiciel magazines are almost all scanned at http://www.abandonware-magazines.org !

Hi Simon
I can easily scan all these mags. May be the archive could be put on the site for all oricians.
So the post must be cheaper inside france.

Well, Ibisum's call as he was the 1st ;)
Ibisum, tell me if that's ok for the price or if I send them to Didier so he can scan them.

Guys, don't forget they are just old phootocopies - Didier I think if you want to scan the books, you'd better use an original one.
As for the Oric-1 manual, I think it's been already scanned but I can't recall where it was stored.

Its okay with me if Didier wants to scan them and it makes sense too - that way we all win!

Right, let's go this way then ;)
(Ibisum, I can't help but think it was not worth the shipping cost anyway ;) )

Sy.. you are probably right, and I'm sure that anything unique in your stack will be well noted by us all having access to the scans .. So .. I don't mean in any way to be contrarian, but in a 'broader stroke' on this topic, it has to be stated that my kids and I have come to value the offline nature of the computer books we've got in our little Oric work area, as it makes for a focused and interesting session as well as puts the education side squarely back in the 'reading a book' category (invaluable in this day and age, to see that skill developed in young minds) .. hope you understand, so actually I'm on a bit of a surge with regards to getting Oric/Atmos (and other old system) docs in hardcopy form. It makes it viable to leave up in the mountain hut, solar powered computing with no network connectivity, a few nice pages to read in the loo, and so on .. ;) Actually the nicest thing lately has to have been witnessing my 3 year old attentively thumbing through "Games for your Oric" and looking, carefully, at the pictures, while also trying to decipher what the words were. He got a few SHOOT's and POKE's right, not bad for a young 'un.

So, like, for the record, my avid trainspotter interest in Oric docs is primarily motivated by such factors. :)

Hehe, I perfectly understand - reading on paper is sometimes much more enjoyable than on screen.
Anyway, if Didier is OK with that, maybe he can send the docs to you once he has finished scanning them, if you wish - though it may be cheaper to print them again from the scanned files ;)
