Re: CEO-Mag Christmas gift: John Sinclair interview available

But one challenge to this is that the CEO isn't readily available in machine-readable form. Or, is it? Well it's PDF, so just as Dbug stated, I think (but haven't tried) that you could have some help from automatic translators. A few articles are re-publications of old magazines, and can be fully s...

Re: CEO-Mag Christmas gift: John Sinclair interview available

Well in the late 90s, it appeared that nobody had time to translate articles anymore (from French to English or English to French). So the CEO decided to publish the articles in their original language. If I'm not mistaken, at the same time, some people in UK managing the magazine stopped without wa...

CEO-Mag Christmas gift: John Sinclair interview available

Hi all, When I did John S. Sinclair interview a few months ago, the idea was to send it first to the Club Europe Oric (CEO) magazine, and later on to share it beyond the Club. The man being probably the best-selling Oric author, his interview deserved being shared with all Oric enthousiasts. Here we...

Re: OUM magazine scans...

Thanks for that. I've not been able to get the other issues to load so your direct links are perfect. You're welcome, glad someone enjoyed it and could be back on track to finish old projects ;) Regarding the download, I'm just using the forum storage area. I also had trouble with Omelette's previs...

Re: OUM magazine scans...

Here's OUM 116 :)
Sorry, some pages were not aligned correctly by the automatic scanner. I couldn't try a 2nd time as I wasn't supposed to monoploize the professional scanner/printer for this.

Re: OUM magazine scans...

Stupid question but I can't recall if we have Dave Dick's blessing for having all this up online? I saw Dave not long a few years back when he visited the Canaries and didn't seem to have any issues with Oric-lovers spreading the word in any way possible. I'd place my hamster's life that Dave won't...

Re: Software ORICAID by MICROGRAF Help Archive

Regarding tape transfers, MP3 is not the way to go. The best (speaking for myself here) is recording at 44kHz, stereo, 8-bits. Stereo because having right and left channels gives two more chances to have a good recording. 44kHz and 8-bit because that's the format the conversion tools are waiting for...

Re: Software ORICAID by MICROGRAF Help Archive

Hi there,

Actually, I had the transfer done since 2012.
It's now all up on Oric.org ;)

Re: Oricutron 1.0 (EDIT: Now 1.2)

Strange I thought I posted, but my post doesn't seem to appear :? If you're looking for information about The Quill, I would suggest asking Dom50 on Oric.org. He did study in detail most of the specific tape loading routines a few years ago, and he recently studied The Quill to help him in his adven...

Re: OUM magazine scans...

On a related question, is Jonathan Haworth's excellent book, "Oric - The Story So far" available online somewhere? Or is scanning this a no-no as well? I've got version 2, updated & reprinted when the OUM was thriving. Fabirce made it available long ago, and it's still here :) http://oric.free.fr/S...
