Title: Looking for OS2 Magazine Articles
Post by: miturbide on 2012.07.19, 17:02:03
Hi

Roger Sessions gave me authorization to include his OS/2 related programming articles to the EDM/2 wiki under CC license.

But I have the problem that I do not have any of his articles around and I was not able to find them over the internet. (or my Google skills are not as sharp as I think)

I'm looking for this articles. I don't know if someone can provide me a scanned copy, so I will try to OCR and migrate it to the wiki.


I'm also interested in other Roger Sessions articles that he authored with N. Coskun, but I still do not have Coskun authorization to migrate this articles to the wiki.

Any help is welcome.

Have you tried contacting Alan Zeichick to see if he has electronic copies archived somewhere?

Thanks for the feedback. I will try to contact Alan Zeichick to see if it possible to release something more to the public.

I'm also looking for this articles and book.

And the book "Object-oriented programming using SOM and DSOM".

Christina Lau authorized to release this articles and book under Creative Commons, but she don't have at hand the digital files of this ones.

If anybody can give me hand finding them it will be appreciated too.

Alan told me that OS/2 Magazine was published by Miller Freeman Inc. which is now part of UBM TechWeb.
He currently don't have any contacts there.

I got the R. Sessions articles thanks to a community member. He took the effort to scan those articles from the magazines and send it over to me. 

I will OCR those scanned pages and porting them to the Wiki. It is going to take me some time, but I hope to do it little by little. If anybody is willing to help me to include content to the EDM/2 wiki please let me know to request access.

I'm still looking around for Christina Lau material.

- Working with the Data Access Builder in: Magazine. OS/2 Professional. (1996)
- Working with the VisuaiAge Visual Builder in: Magazine. OS/2 Professional. (1996)
- Programming with SOM in: Magazine. OS/2 Professional. (1995)
- Programming with DSOM in: Magazine. OS/2 Professional. (1995)
- And the book "Object-oriented programming using SOM and DSOM".

Thanks.

Would it help to have the articles scanned to PDF? My Epson Artisan 810 has that feature. I'll have to check to see if I have any of the Lau articles.
