Good collection. All that Martin Gardner and Dr. Matrix,
Conway's 'Life'...waaaaa

So do you have the Sept. '74 issue in which the Amateur
Scientist, IIRC, taught us how to breadboard 74xx logic gates
 - so then one could build a machine to solve 'truth tables'
as in Irving Copi's "Symbolic Logic"?

What fun they were. Karnaugh maps were just ahead.
