This would be the era I'd be interested in. Thanks for pointing that out.
The one really good one I have is from this era (November, 1982).

BTW, for the person that was interested in the Victor 9000, there's a
review of that machine in the above-mentioned issue, and an interview with
Chuck Peddle.

This might also be interesting, but not terribly useful for my purposes.
I don't think I'd bother with this era.

Who do I have to kill for a copy of that issue? ;)
