Back in the day, I bought the spiral-bound book, "The Internet for Commodore Users" by Gaelyne Gasson. It was the third, and little did I know at the time, it was the final edition. Every once in awhile, C= users ask about getting their machines on-line, and I refer them to TIFCU if it answers their questions. (TIFCU was written before C= wi-fi modems and other newer means of connecting.)
All these years I had thought that the book would never be seen again. I was wrong! In September I met with Gaelyne in Adelaide, South Australia, and she informed me that C= users can still access the book by downloading the .PDF. I was gladly surprised.
If you want your own copy of TIFCU, read the description at
Nice link. There is more Commodore stuff than the book available there for sale.
Interesting. It looks like they are selling CDs of collections, like Genie archive, CompuServe archive, etc that if I am not mistaken are all available online free. The Loadstar years are interesting. I know Fender Tucker sells the official Loadstar Compleat, as I have bought it from him, so I wonder how this fits in?

I know that most of the Genie files are available at Maurice Randall's website. Where did you find the Compuserve archive? Of course, for some people (like me) having a CD with all files is convenient compared to searching on-line. As for Loadstar, I believe the Gassons have worked out a deal with Fender Tucker to distribute the CDs in Australia.
