I downloaded the .tiff files. Opened them up in Microsofts image/fax viewer
(included with Windows XP anyways). Then I selected all the pages by
clicking on the top page (thumbnail view), then ctrl-clicking on the last
page (thumbnail view). Then did a rotate counterclockwise 90 degrees cause
all the pages were turned in the original. Then I printed them, using a fake
printer driver that pops up asking you what file name you want to save them
as, and it generates the .pdf file. This printer driver to pdf thing is a
commercial product that cost me money. Can't remember who puts it out, but
it works wonderfully. Basically ANY program which can print (under windows)
like word, excel, 3rd party apps, etc. can go to pdf.

If you ship me the CD's, I'll gladly convert all the .tiff files to .pdf
files and send you pdf CD's back. Also, with your permission, I'd like to
host those files on classiccmp.org as well - either independently or via a
mirror. Bandwidth and storage isn't an issue.
