Got no idea about copyright on this page. I am only assuming that all material here is still copyrighted back to the bloke who originally designed and built the stuff. So all credits go to their owners.
* Hunter Valley newsletters/journals are copyrighted by Gavin Williamson & Joe Leon - Editors and Publishes.
* VZ Down Under magazines are probably copyrighted still to Harry Huggins.
* VZ-200 and VZ-300 were copyrighted to Video Technology of down-town Hong Kong back in 1981 thru to around 1990.
* The QWERTY keyboard was named by someone who couldn't read proper.
* 12 volts was made possible by Mr Volta.
* Princess black and white TV's made by Princess. Most commonly used as a monitor by VZers. (false survey)
* Dubios and McNamara - where are you?
There, thats taken care of copyright!
Some of these articles, pages, reviews and magazines have been saved as .GIF, .JPG & some as a non-copressed .TIF file format (from photocopies of photocopied original 9 pin dot matrix printouts) - each page occupying somewhere around 1 or 2 meg each.
All of the Hunter Valley mags have been re-sized to 800 by its aspect ratio, then reduced to 2 bit colour, then saved as a .GIF file -
reducing each page down to around 20 to 35k in size. Hence a 12 page journal magazine is around 300 to 400k in size.
Quality has been pretty much thrown out the window. If you can not read anything, please email me and I shall try to fix it up.
