This book takes a single line of code—the extremely concise BASIC program for the Commodore 64 inscribed in the title—and uses it as a lens through which to consider the phenomenon of creative computing and the way computer programs exist in culture. The authors of this collaboratively written book treat code not as merely functional but as a text—in the case of 10 PRINT, a text that appeared in many different printed sources—that yields a story about its making, its purpose, its assumptions, and more. They consider randomness and regularity in computing and art, the maze in culture, the popular BASIC programming language, and the highly influential Commodore 64 computer.

Designing with LibreOffice is not the usual death march through the menu and standard tasks. Instead, the book takes two fresh approaches to the world’s most popular free office suite.
First, it explains the importance of using styles and templates in order to use LibreOffice with the most convenience and the least effort. By taking advantage of styles and templates, you can concentrate on self-expression, rather than format. Later, as you edit, you can make changes more quickly and with more precision.
Second, it explains the basics of modern design and how to apply them in LibreOffice, expanding on the open secret that LibreOffice is as much a desktop publishing application as an office suite. It explains and illustrates the possible choices as you design, as well as the pros, cons, and considerations behind each choice — and, in some cases, what you should avoid altogether.
The result of these approaches is a unique overview of using LibreOffice. If you are a new user, the book will help you get up to speed with LibreOffice. If you have already used LibreOffice, then this book will leave you with a clearer overview of the program and its capabilities.

Stone Butch Blues, Leslie Feinberg’s 1993 first novel, is widely considered in and outside the U.S. to be a groundbreaking work about the complexities of gender. Feinberg was the first theorist to advance a Marxist concept of “transgender liberation.” Sold by the hundreds of thousands of copies and also passed from hand-to-hand inside prisons, Stone Butch Blues has been translated into Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Slovenian, Turkish, and Hebrew (with hir earnings from that edition going to ASWAT Palestinian Gay Women). The novel was winner of the 1994 American Library Association Stonewall Book Award and a 1994 Lambda Literary Award.
The 20th Anniversary Author’s Edition of Stone Butch Blues is available in multiple formats. A free PDF can be downloaded from this site, and a hardcopy PoD version can be purchased from Lulu.
The following is a “Cup-Diskette” which would’ve been used to record player scores during the Super Mario Swiss Cup tournament held by Nintendo in Switzerland, 1993! Participants would try to qualify for the final round by attempting to gather as many points as possible in either Super Mario Bros 3 for the NES, or Looney Tunes Road Runner for the SNES within a seven-minute timeframe. One of these diskettes would’ve been able to be purchased on-site for CHF 5.00, and would’ve given the player a total of five attempts to get a good score.
The disk itself holds two files: GAME_1.DAT and GAME_2.DAT, both with a filedate of the May 28th, 1993. It’s currently unknown how to extract the data from these files, so if you happen to figure it out let us know! We’d be super interested to learn exactly how much information they contain.

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.
