  1. I've started to add some of my classic reprints to
    <http://www.tinaja.com/glair01.asp#early>

    There's eight of them so far, with dozens more about to be added.
    Both construction projects and tutorials.

    The files are single load PDF's using Adobe's new Clearscan.
    Most of the text is now fully searchible.

  2. Reprint the 4046 PLL article that was in Radio Electronics (Popular?).
    ( I think it was you that wrote that one )

    Cheers
     

  3. I did not use the 4046 all that much.
    There was some coverage in my CMOS Cookbook.

    Do you have a better reference?

  4. Make sure you are in the right section.

    Try <http://www.tinaja.com/glib/colorg01.pdf>

    Otherwise, try a real adobe reader.


    The third party links are page-at-a-time and unsearchable.
    My links are full document and searchable with smaller file sizes.

  5. They work fine with my Foxit 2.3

    Dave.
     
  6. That happened to me on a downloaded issue of Circuit Cellar the other month.
    But if I recall it didn't work on Acrobat either.

  8. Any chance you have some old MODERN ELECTRONICS magazines?

    These are enormously hard to find, and I want to scan my hacker columns
    from them. Especially http://www.tinaja.com/glib/marcia.pdf entries.

  9. Ooops, my mistake. It was Forest Mimms that wrote the article.
    Popular Electronics, July/August 1980

    Nine little article on the 4046 pll operation.

    Cheers

    I tried looking at a few documents. Works fine in Foxit Reader 2.2.
    Search function works a charm.
     

  11. Clearscan, while downright wonderful, does seem to be quirky.

    On some reprints, it gets most of the main text.
    On others, it actually gets text off photos and schematics and
    approaches full search coverage.

    It is even swift enough to find both regular and hyphenated words!

    Sadly, clearscan is only available on Acrobat 9 professional.

    It could get even better. It sure would be nice to be able to edit their
    fonts. And there is no easy way to fix search artifacts.

    Carefully done hires scans appear to be a must for the best results.
    I'm not completely happy with our present uploads. But getting them in
    place takes priority over getting them perfect.

    The problem with Foxit is that it always blurs the edges of the
    letters and you can't switch it off. Seems like a modern thing but I
    can't focus properly on such text. <rant> I really don't understand
    that. We have crystal sharp TFT screens so text is not blurred and now
    they start to blur text in software????? Should we send our old CRT
    screens to India???</rant>

    Anyway, did you try Acrobat reader 9? It is way better than the
    previous versions.

    That ASCII keyboard from '74 sure is a nifty design! Most of the stuff
    I'm working on isn't more complex but has a tcp/ip stack and a
    webserver none the less. OTOH that would make the keyboard readable
    from your iPhone :)
     
  14. Theres a local library that has an excellent stock of sams photofacts. I
    think they might have Modern electronics in their archives as well. I
    will give them a call and see.

    Cheers
     
  15. This has been a long term problem.
    Any help you can provide will be appreciated.

    There's another free reader at http://www.docu-track.com. They've been
    doing a pretty good job on it; very responsive to bug reports. It's
    become my everyday reader.

    WRT text, the options setting allows you to disable text smoothing and
    also to adjust the gamma for text rendering. The default (1.0 gamma and
    smoothing turned on) works okay for me but it does give one a choice.

    I went through a couple boxes of old magazines I have from 1971 to 1974.
    All I have are Mechanix Illustrated, Popular Science and Playboy.
    Now back to my magazines ;-)
