I have some Amiga documentation gifted to me a long time ago by an Amiga
enthusiast. Now that I'm moving and downsizing, it has to go.
Free for shipping, USPS media mail.
AmigaDOS User's Manual - paperback book
"This manual describes the various AmigaDOS, [sic] and its commands."
Errata to the AmigaDOS User's Manual - photocopy
Amiga Hardware Manual - photocopy
"... provides information about the Amiga graphics and audio
hardware ... tutorial on writing assembly language programes to directly
control the Amiga's graphics and hardware."
INTERFACING TO THE 68K BUS CONNECTOR ON THE AMIGA
Designing Hardware for the Amiga Expansion Architecture
Drawings of the Expansion Boards for the Amiga
A packet of photocopy documents and schematics.

I put a picture of the one at RICM here:
Going from left to right: QIC tape drive, dual floppies, disk drive, card
expansion, CPU, and power supply. We have the monitor, keyboard, and
printer for it too.
Next time I am in the warehouse I will take pictures of the serial/model
number tags of everything.
Although there are people interested in collecting historic software (especially source code), I don?t know of a central place to discuss it. I?ve collected the original IBM 704 Fortran/Fortran II compiler, the original IBM 709x Lisp II interpreter, and various other things (see http://www.softwarepreservation.org/projects). As you build up your collection of CAD-related source code, I would encourage you to offer copies to the Computer History Museum (http://www.computerhistory.org/artifactdonation/) for long-term preservation.

Also, the computer history museum has a listing, so someone might be interested in getting the original code running on an emulator:

A look through the report shows the use of rings, linked lists, recursion, storage considerations, maths, graphics and so on (only needing to replace the light pen with the mouse of course) which could be a fascinating exercise for a student. Yes there are already Sketchpad-named apps and Sketchpad-like programs, but I'm not sure if there is a near-100% faithful recreation of that original program as demoed in the film out there.
Hi guys - wonder if any OCR aficionado can help me out please.
I'm trying to clean up some old computer docs.
One of things I'm doing is running OCR over them, in particular Adobe's ClearScan which I really like for document clarity and small
A few of them are producing the error:
Acrobat could not perform recognition (ocr) on this page because:
Most OCR errors relate to renderable text but I can't find an explanation for "ENU"
Has anyone encountered this OCR error and can tell me what it means please.
Cross-post for the DEC Lovers here.

I'd sure like to get this thing out to make room for more Teletypes.
