Though not in pdf, http://www.atarimagazines.com/ has some of them
available as html. More of the Compute! 's themselves than the
gazette. But it is a start.

BTW-- I am one of those people :-)

Good News..... my good friend Tim K. (irondick) -- who is the present
librarian of The Commie K BB's library, has volunteered to return the
library to me for scanning of the same... and may possibly send some
of his stuff too....

This is VERY-VERY good news.... it may be the middle of 2008 before I
can finish the project, but I can't wait to get started.

Stay tuned on a mouse click near you

This is good news! I got rid of most of mine in one of those "I'll
never use these again" moods about 6 months before I got re-
interested in Commodore stuff.

Before he died in 2005 Jeremy Sieracki compiled a CD of scans of all the
mags and included all of the disks in D64 images.

I'd like to see this for the Ahoy! magazines as well if anyone knows
of a project going on to convert them.

There was a guy named mike who started scanning Ahoy! and making web
pages of the articles back in 2004/5. Unfortunately he felt
unappreciated by the community and felt like most of the people on CSC
were ungodly. At that time there was much political and moral
argument. He gave up the project.

I gave the guy a complete set of Compute!'s (and some Gazettes) to help
his 'community' project. He said he would return the magazines and never
did. His site is up and says that it is a "private site" and that there
is a $50 yearly fee to access the content. What's funny is that the site
sasys they have all the subscribers they can handle and there's a waiting
list. This is Mike's amateurish attempt at creating interest because the
site isn't finished. Basically, he's full of crap.

He has this pathetic 'why doesn't everyone love me' complex. He made a big
stink about how he was leaving the community but he still follows c.s.c and
some web forums looking for mentions of his name. I'm sure he will want to
respond to this and he's trying to figure out a way to make it look like he
wasn't reading the group. I bet he'll say that "a friend told me you were
talking about me". Pathetic.

Ouch.

He did OCR my scans of Arcade Game Programming on C64 by Steve Bress.
Made a nice page of it. It's buried somewhere on my second hard drive.
I should try to find it.

Golan, Golan, when will you get a life?

> I gave the guy a complete set of Compute!'s (and some Gazettes) to help
> his 'community' project. He said he would return the magazines and never

Golan donated the magazines to me. Unfortunately, Golan and I had some
disagreements on how I want to implement the community project. He
decided to act like a baby, throwing a tempter tantrum, name calling,
etc. When offered to return them, I asked him to provide me his
address but cowardly Golan didn't want to meet me face to face and
pretended not to receive my e-mail. I guess it's easy to have a big
mouth from behind a computer and not so easy when you're face to face.
I'm sure he's going to come on here with his, "any time, any where"
but it's bogus.


> did. His site is up and says that it is a "private site" and that there
> is a $50 yearly fee to access the content. What's funny is that the site

The site does exist and is completed and is definitely private but I
guess Golan doesn't like the fact that he'll never get a chance to
access it. It essentially links to a server I'm running in my house.


> Unfortunately he felt unappreciated by the community and felt like most

No, I decided to get a life and stop wasting time and energy. I have a
wife, kids, pets, and friends in the real world, unlike Golan is who
surrounded by his virtual friends, imaginary girlfriend and a
collections of Commodore PETs.

I do lurk every now and then but, unsurprisingly, there's rarely
anything new or exciting.


> He has this pathetic 'why doesn't everyone love me' complex.

What's pathetic is how Golan spends night and day on all sorts of
Commodore and Amiga forums. Lemon64? Lemon Amiga? petscii.com? You
name it, he's on it and he's usually the top poster. It's really a
pathetic and sad life but I guess that's what you expect from someone
who has no life and no friends. So, Golan loves to exert his
superiority with a thesaurus in hand. When you read his posts or on
the IRC, you'd think he has a Ph.D. but when you actually talk to him
in person, you realize he's just a lonely, sad, uneducated schmuck. He
loves to dish it but can't take it.

Sometimes he'll even troll, like this message, trying to breath some
minor excitement to his otherwise boring, meaningless and sad
existence.

It's also sad to bring this into a public forum but that's Golan's
style.


> I bet he'll say that "a friend told me you were talking about me".

No but I did receive a couple of e-mails asking for access to my site,
etc. I figured someone posted something, somewhere so here I am.

So, if I understand correctly, you borrowed someones magazines under
the pretense od "doing something for the community", then decided to
charge "the community" for access, got pissed when Golan did not agree
with your strategy and kept or destroyed his magazines??

Nice job douche..... hopefully someone else will scan these, then your
"pay" site will be worthless. personally, I have all the mags, so
access to scans really doesnt concern me.

maybe some of your friends will tell you that the thread has been
updated, since you clearly do not read the group....

Borrowed? No, not at all. Golan gave me the magazines to keep, which
he even admitted to. No strings, no conditions.

He did so because, as many people might recall, I ran a web site with
hundreds of Ahoy and Gazette magazine articles and screen shots,
freely accessible to anyone. Eventually, I got tired of people
trashing me. To think, I spent all these hours scanning and doing all
this work and a bunch of pricks come along and tell me my site sucks,
I suck and I need to listen to them.

Golan gave me the magazines as an incentive to bring my site back up
and expand the content. However, after several months, Golan and I
came to a disagreement on how I would resurrect the site. He wrote me
several nasty e-mails attacking me personally, my character, etc.
because he wanted some thing for the site and I wanted another. I told
him that he was free to do it himself and I offered to return the
magazines.

Since I didn't have his phone number or anything, I e-mailed asking
him to call or e-mail to arrange a drop off or pick up or whatever. I
told him that I was eventually moving and that if he didn't contact me
and make arrangements for the magazines by the time moving day rolled
around, the magazines would be trashed.

Unfortunately, Golan's like a fly that enters your house, buzzes
around and generally annoys you but you just can't seem to swat it.
The poor bugger just can't stop bothering me about something that
happen 2 years ago! It's funny to see this post, crying out for more
attention. Even my wife was like, "just give the poor boy back his
magazines." She has no idea that Golan's actually older than us. She
thought he was some 12 or 14 year old. LOL.

Anyway, Golan never contacted me about retrieving the magazines and he
had several months to do so. He had my number so he could have called.
He could have e-mailed me. He even knows where I lived so he could
have come by any time. I even told him the day I threw them out so he
could just drive by and pick them up. He did nothing so all this talk
about me not wanting to return them is just b.s. The bottom line is
mouthy Golan didn't have the guts to meet me face-to-face.

About a year later, he eventually e-mailed me with a slew of new
insults. I guess he was off his meds that day or something. Here's one
such comment:

"I guess the whole leaving the D&D playing, basement dwelling nerds
thing didn't work out."

The irony is that I own a house that's 3,000 sq.ft. and I've never
played D&D. Heck, I don't even play RPGs. I do know a bunch of guys in
the Commodore community who do enjoy D&D and this is what Golan thinks
of them? They're a bunch of basement dwelling nerds? It's funny how
Golan shows himself on the forums as being so nice, supportively, etc.
but behind their backs, he just trashes them.


> Nice job douche.....

Indeed...this type of statement is exactly why I decided to pull my
site and make it private in the first place.

I won't take up for Golan, but tossing those old mags was
irresponsible. IMHO.

You just don't get it do you? There were strings. He gave the magazines
to you under the pretense that you were going to scan them and make them
available to the community. Not make them available for a fee. Why the
hell would someone donate something to you just so that you could charge
other people to access it?

And while we're on the topic of charging, how do you justify charging
for access to something that you don't rightly own anyway? Somehow I
don't think you own the copyright on any of the stuff you host do you?
If you justify it by saying it is to cover bandwidth costs, I don't
believe that will fly with Canadian copyright law.

I see you have a really thick skin. If you were doing it for the
community like you originally claimed, who gives a fuck about a few
people bitching?

Can you blame him? Honestly? You went back on your word.

The last refuge of someone with no leg to stand on. Who gives a flying
fuck about how big your house is? Why not list your education
credentials too? I bet that would help us all realize how great a person
you really are.

Well said Dragos. Funny, it's one of the reasons I stick around this
community - someone will always call you on your bullshit.

Huh? Are you serious? The scans are pay-per-view?

I don't (want to) believe it.

Sorry but we're full! Yes, we only had a limited subscriber base
available. If you'd like to gain access in the future, we can place
you on a waiting list. You will need a PayPal account as there is a US
$50/year membership fee to cover bandwidth costs. There are no banner
ads or any sort of advertising on the site. For more information,
please e-mail mikec_cbm@hotmail.com.

Huh?

Do I get free access since I scanned that book in?

Guys,

I've made the facts known. If you want to ignore them, that's up to
you. The bottom line is this:

1) Golan had all the time and opportunity to contact me to pick the
magazines up. He didn't so they're gone. Crying about it now is
laughable.

2) The site is private and only available to those who I allow (my
personal friends). It's not about the money. You can offer to may me
$1,000 and my response is going to be, "let lost." If fact, two guys
on the site who helped me do the scanning and OCR aren't paying
anything.

3) There's a lot more content other than the magazines. The magazines
are a tiny fraction of the content available on the site.

Christian Lott, I'm not using the book that I scanned for you. I did
that for you as a favor so enjoy! Also, thanks for the offer to host
but this site isn't about the Commodore community, it's about sharing
content with my friends who, early on, graciously offered to cover the
bandwidth costs. After that, a few more people wanted to join so I
posted the appropriate content. However, other than a small group of
personal friends, I have not accepted any money from anyone else and
I've turned away quite a few people.

End of story.

well, if you screwed me over and I knew where you lived, you would
have a different story to tell. If I were you, I'd count myself lucky
that Golan didn't bother to swing by and "fix" your attitude problem.

I saw your recent customers websites..... 12 yr olds do better work...

oh hey, wait, if it were 1995, those sites would be awsome....

if Golan thinks you are a douche, good chance you are...

no big deal, the "community" is full of them

Too bad you had a fallout with Golan Dude..... but you should have
offered the mags to ANYONE else, willing to pay for the shipping
then.... "it come's around -- it goes around "

As far as people not liking your site... and sending nasty email's or
posting message's......... I am laffing my ass off BIG TIME !!!

It would seem that you never have run a public access site before, in
either the form of a BB's or website ... so SysOping must be a new
experience to you... You seem to have just went and hid under a rock
and closed your site, because you can't deal with it.

You are NOT a SysOp... by any stretch of the imagination ..... and you
will NEVER be a Webmaster, if you can't handle the flack you are
GARUNTEED TO RECIEVE, if you put "anything" public on the net ( or a
dial up BBs even ).

I think Abe Lincoln was the one who said something like "you can't
please all the people all of the time ect. ect. ect.

You obviously don't have the backbone, to do the job........ that's a
shame.... because now you have trashed a collection of magazine's..
and because your a chicken-shit if someone doesn't like your "site",
have hidden them from the REAL community...

But don't worry......... there are some REAL user's here, who are
working on the project, with no intention at all of hiding it
afterword's..... I hope you got what you wanted..................
and I hope you firewall's are up to date on your "home server" ....
because you probably have pissed enough people off here, that one of
the old timer's might just hack your site now ( BTW.... THAT is
another "thingee" a SysOp has to deal with)

Good Luck

The "story" is always the same: tough guy on forum = real life loser.

Anyway, you guys remind me of the bum on the street corner who begs
you for change and when you politely tell him you don't have any, he
tells you to F-off.

> If I were you, I'd count myself lucky that Golan didn't

Sure, he'd run out of his car, up my driveway and be out of breath.
Besides, he's too busy writing his 12 messages a day on all the forums
and newsgroups.

> I saw your recent customers websites..... 12 yr olds do better work...

Maybe but I've done well over the years. It's easy to sit behind a
computer, take pot shots at people and hide behind an alias. What do
you do for a living? What have you accomplished with your life? Do you
even have a job? Please do tell.

> if Golan thinks you are a douche, good chance you are...

I think you'd surprised what he thinks of you and others on c.s.c.
because when we did hook up and talk many years ago, he wasn't too
flattering towards most of those on c.s.c.

Well dickhead, most people who know me, know what I do for a living,
its not something I need to brag about. Bring your mouth to an expo
and we can get you fixed up. Kimmy was going to show me his toughness
at WoC this year, too bad he didn't make it ( I did)

As for what Golan thinks of me, I have actually hung out with him, I
assure you that YOU are the douche....

and they are not pit shots, those sites suck ass, plain and
simple..... oh wait, maybe you use wave.....

Brag? It's a simple question and I'm sure whatever you do isn't
impressive enough to consider bragging. Go on, I'm sure people would
love to know what someone of your acumen does for a living.

> Bring your mouth to an expo

You mean I should waste more of my life by attending an expo and
listen to hours and hours of talk about a 20 year old computer and
have people pat themselves on the back for still using it? Ah, no
thanks.

> As for what Golan thinks of me, I have actually hung out with him

Yeah, you really should ask him. We all know you've had a number of
colorful exchanges with people over the years on c.s.c and c64friends.
Your name was mentioned in conversation and certainly not in a
pleasant context. I seem to remember him lumping you into the same
category as Wildstar (no offense, Rick).

In the interest of quoting great men of history correctly, I should
point out that what Abraham Lincoln said was:
"You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people
all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time."

Okay... You guys can go back to your pointless ranting... ;)

Why should he, it's utterly irrelevant to the question of whether you're an
arsehole or not.

Ah yes, I know that mood well. :( I even got rid of heaps of
old Amiga magazines AND my CD32+SX1 module years back. Just
threw it out at the tip. :( Just like that. "Amiga is dead"
I kept hearing, so I turfed it. :( What else can I say. :(

You know, Golem pulled the same nonsense with ThinkCommodore.com.

Just follow the thread:

http://www.lemonamiga.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4379

and here:

....offering to help with a site, pretending not to receive the
relevant e-mails and then lashing out at people who dare to question
him about it.

Probably because he knows you're a liar :-)

You say stuff like - C64 stuff is a waste of time:
> You mean I should waste more of my life by attending an expo and
> listen to hours and hours of talk about a 20 year old computer and
> have people pat themselves on the back for still using it? Ah, no
> thanks.

...but then you spend countless hours talking to C64 enthusiasts, know
who they are, even what they say about each other, scan magazines,
interact (accept 'donations' - which you subsequently use for
garbage)...

You know what CSC is, you know what c64friends is - you even post
messages on both.

You claim to have a small group of friends who access your Ahoy! site,
which you claim to have more C64 'content' than just those magazines..

You show all the signs of being a normal C64 enthusiast. You're also a
jerk, which places you among the majority.

I'm making an assumption you've done a few 'commodore 64' searches on
the internet, looked at a few of those sites, downloaded some
'content' etc..

After all that taking you feel charging $50 a year for a private C64
website is the honorable thing to do, especially since the majority of
current C64 users (except your select 'friends') are not worthy.

Oh wait - now you're NOT charging... there is no price for all your
hard work.

Your hypocrisy is transparent.

Your magazine scanning project started out as a project to 'give
something back to the community'. Then a few assholes pissed you off.

Thanks for nothing. Now you are just another asshole.

A person who takes and never gives = sucker. A person who changes his
mind about his own intentions = hypocrite and a liar. You never could
have helped this community because you've always outsmarted your best
intentions - childishly claiming others forced you.

How do you know where Golan posts? Do you stalk Golan? Do you frequent
the same forums he does? Do you avidly read his posts?

You will deny it all. You merely throw away his donations. What an
asshole you are.

I think you may have me confused with someone else.... See when all
this transpired I was not on the forums or the newsgroups. I have
only been back after a 20 yr lapse for about 2 years.... so try to
make me think I don't know who my friends are, i am sure a dishonest
fuck like you will have much success in convincing me of anything.

You're right! I've confused you with a normal person that has a real
job and not a gutless coward hiding behind an alias who can't answer a
simple question of what they do.

Anyway, this is going to be my last post on this topic. I've decided
that the trolls have had enough of the buffet. It's always interesting
to see how the bottom feeders of our society live and try to justify
their empty and useless lives. I'm sure the bum on the corner takes
great satisfaction telling everyone else to F-off but at the end of
the day, their life is apparent to all those who walk by, pity them
and continue on their merry way.

It's definitely been a fun distraction but it's time to return to the
real world.
