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.

Not sure if they have all of the issues.

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...
