Magazine Syntax Z80 - Preservation

Post by RMartins » Wed Dec 27, 2017 4:25 pm

I was not aware of this magazine, but found a good example on e-bay, by chance.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/302580124010

It seems to be ZX80 related, but seems to be mostly white paper text, instead of the usual glossy paper.
Would this be something of interest for preservation ?

I would say so, but I'm not even aware if there are already digital records/copies of it, somewhere else.

Ok, Archive.org has only the first 3 volumes. The Ebay listing has a 4th volume. It's like a hybrid trade/usergroup type newsletter. Last year of publication probably would be interesting. But quality wise its a usergroup circular so for the money its a personal decision but I couldn't justify it.

To put this into some perspective, I got a complete run of INPUT for 5 quid...

Seems to be a fair number of dead links in there.

That's because magazines links in ZXDB are just references to Archive.org.

Whenever a magazine collection is incomplete at Archive.org, we get broken links at ZXDB based sites like SC.

I will start a separate thread to talk about magazines in ZXDB, detailing our current work and status about it...

I just got informed of a more complete collection that will be uploaded to Archive.org.

I'm updating ZXDB accordingly, so most links for this magazine will work after the next update.
