The Transactor was started life in 1978 as a Commodore Business Machines publication used to explain low level details of the Commodore PET. In 1982 it was reborn as a bimonthly independent magazine published out of Milton Ontario (Toronto) covering all 8bit Commodore’s. This revised magazine used the slogan new slogan was “The Tech News Journal for Commodore Computers” and was paid for through advertising and subscription prices. A quick scan of the covers below and you will be able to see when this change occurred. The Commodore Transactors were mass produced using a very inexpensive mimeograph technology while the independent magazine was created using a proper printing press.
Both publications were known for their depth. They covered hardware hacking in detail and were read by serious users. One issue even boasted that it was 95% advertising free right on the cover.

Book Banning has existed in America since colonial times, when legislatures and royal governors enacted laws against blasphemy and seditious libel. Legislatures in the early American republic passed laws against obscenity. Though freedom of the press has grown significantly over the course of the twentieth century, book banning and related forms of censorship have persisted due to cyclical concerns about affronts to cultural, political, moral, and religious orthodoxy.

Over the years I've amassed a large collection of links, resources, tools and so on that I find useful in my trading/investing activities. I'm compiling those here, along with any that were shared with me via Twitter/Reddit/email/etc and seemed useful after a cursory look. While I've done my best to link to tools that are not only legitimate but also likely to stay active, alive and useful for the foreseeable future, obviously I have no control over these companies/websites and over time some of the links may break or situations may emerge that turn them into poor recommendations. Also, this list is not exhaustive by any means and may be updated in the future as new tools/resources emerge.

BookWyrm is a platform for social reading! You can use it to track what you're reading, review books, and follow your friends. It isn't primarily meant for cataloguing or as a datasource for books, but it does do both of those things to some degree. With ActivityPub, it inter-operates with different instances of BookWyrm, and other ActivityPub compliant services, like Mastodon and Pixelfed. This means you can run an instance for your book club, and still follow your friend who posts on a server devoted to 20th century Russian speculative fiction. It also means that your friend on mastodon can read and comment on a book review that you post on your BookWyrm instance.
