        The whole Adam Osborne 'microcomputers' series are *still*
valuable books as technical trainers. I used to have the series, but for
some reason have only book 0 left. I wish they would be reissued with a
bent towards the home computer hobbyist as it was. Even just republishing
the old series would probably be a money maker as, no doubt, there are
many who still remember the quality of his books.

        If anyone wishes to sell any Osborne titles, especially from the
'microcomputer' series, I'm a buyer.
