ARexx Cookbook

Is there any electronic version of this gem available? Text or scan would be fine.

I'll upload the ARexx book and the disk to the file server, so the site doesn't get too much load for that. If there is any other stuff on the site (I guess all ), let me know and I'll mirror it

Edit : Book and disk are in the folder 'Apps/Docs/ARexx' now.

@AlfaRomeo: not really, just posting a link
@TCD & all: there is a lot more intresting docs over there. once he posted about a mass-download from his page, he just banned the whole subnet from accessing his page. so dont risk anything
but everyone is invited to contribute to his page

he made some torrents of some magazine scans. look at the archived news page (http://www.bombjack.org/commodore/lo...ex-archive.htm

i'd say, if anyone wants to get the whole lot, there is a fairly cheap dvd alternative: http://www.bombjack.org/commodore/dvd/dvd.htm
Edit: argh, seen that too late: "This is only the Commodore 8-bit items, no Amiga items yet".

@all: dont get me wrong here, do what you want - just my thoughts.

np prowler

@all: on his dvd-offer page he wrote: "Give copies to your friends, share with other locals. As 'The Softrunner Group' used to say "WE DON'T DELAY WE'LL SPREAD IT TODAY"

so maybe he doesnt mind, if we have kind of mirror - you could share on the eab-fileserver, what you downloaded from him - TCD will for sure provide a folder for it

Of course There is a 'BombJack' folder in the upload section now. So if you download something from there, be nice and upload it to the fileserver

Nice site.

I doubt he's too concerned about site traffic or he would have compressed the scans at least.

Thanks to cosmicfrog () a large number of books and magazines from that site are now available on the file server The books are in the folder 'Docs/BombJack' and the magazines simply in 'Magazines'. Thanks again cosmic
