This web site is a work in progress, currently I'm going back and cleaning up some things and working on the todo's.
The current issue will be indexed as soon as possible - please be patient as the initial info (cover jpg, etc) comes from store.2600.com and I also need time to receive, read and write the article information and update the host server.
- Update links with errors (new link and/or archive.org).
- Review articles in bit bucket (add more keywords?).
- Fix local copy logic of tinyurls.
- Add support for IPv6 links.
- Update/finish open source stuff.
- Autumn 1994 issue [11:3] page 48 was the first with pictures of phones on the back.
- Summer 1995 issue [12:2] page 16 was the first with reference to the www.2600.com web site. ([12:1] page 21 annouced construction)
