 That was the theme of the issue, Information Technology . I treasure it more
than the 1977 one, which is also great.
 Another one was the April 17 1980 "Special Commemorative Issue " of
Electronics , which was basicly a restricted "trade" magazine. It's a massive
650 page issue which covered 50 years of electronics history. Unless it was
also published as a book, there is nothing that can compare. An incredible
source of electonics history.
 At the moment is in a sideways milk crate with other Electronics and my old
Bytes and other mags and I must treat them more protectively if they are to be
preserved. Mea culpa. But it's nice to just reach down and spend a couple of
hours with computer history.
