I decided to buy and share this book online as I found the internet was lacking in VCR servicing information.  VCRs are still in use for a variety of projects and personal use, yet when they fail they are replaced.  This book is compact and easy to read, and while not a specific service manual it does a great job of explaining the technical aspects of VHS.  Even I understood a few concepts!  Worth a scroll through.

Archimedes Game Maker’s Manual by Terry Blunt, Scanned book

I chose to share my personal copy of this book as the Acorn Archimedes computer doesn’t get a lot of coverage online.  As keyed from the rear cover, “This book shows how to use Archimedes BASIC 5 to build high quality games for both education and recreational purposes.  Although ‘old hands’ will find this book invaluable, it is ideal for those new to the Archimedes, and probably new to games programming, although some knowledge of programming in BASIC is expected.”

Originally published by Sigma Press in 1992, Copyright T. Blunt.
ISBN: 1850582416

The original book text was very close to the binding margin.

Hitachi Peach Personal Computer documentation

Japanese personal computers were available in Australia and supported by users groups such as ‘The Australian Phase’.  Unfortunately I have little knowledge of the Peach but share these PDF files to hopefully fill in some gaps in documentation available online.  A majority of the pages scanned were photocopied originals made into books,

Interesting that just down from my home in Canberra was ‘The Software House’ which have documented the Peach ROM and Drive.  If anyone has a contact for them some 40 years later then by all means get in touch.

Two Australian books: Shake Hands With The Apple ][ and Apple //e

Shake Hands With The Apple – two books presented in the original form and then the later Apple //e updated edition.  The preface: We are involved in teaching computer operation to post secondary students and find that available manuals assume an understanding of computing terminology. We realise that there is a need for a simplified guide for the beginner who has little or no knowledge of computers or computing terms. SHAKE HANDS WITH THE APPLE has been designed to meet that need.

600dpi scan, printed page matches PDF numbering and OCR performed.  Enjoy by navigating to Book Scans:
