Sync Magazine v3 n5 page 86 missing

Post by mrtinb » Thu Dec 27, 2018 11:34 am

Hi :-)

The index of Sync Magazine mentions an article in volume 3 number 5 that page 86 has the article: "Extensions to Basic".

https://archive.org/details/syncmagazine-v3_n5/page/n85

However page 86 is missing from the scans on archive.org.

Does anyone have this issue?

Of the few versions of this issue I find online, they all come from the same scan which misses page 86. :cry:

I will look at Interlibrary Loans for missing page. It will only cost me $5. :roll:

Update: Might come in Monday... with New Years might be later next week. (if they find it)

They do not have Sync Magazine in the Danish libraries, as it's an American magazine.

I can send you $5 on Revolut or PayPal.

Gammaray and Mrtinb,

Good news, I happen to have a certain SYNC magazine issue with its pages INTACT!
Pages 86 - 89 I scanned these pages into a 600 dpi PDF file. :D :lol:

For my recent post above here, I decided that I am generous and I scanned 4 pages of the certain article and turned it into a file. I checked the opening web-link again. :oops:.... However, here is a scanned page 86 of the certain SYNC magazine issue! :D :lol:
