For what it's worth, GIF is a relatively inefficent format for stuff like this. A common format for document imaging purposes is TIFF using CCITT G4 compression. To compare, the file size of a document scanned at 300dpi in G4 TIFF format is usually not much larger than the same document scanned at 150dpi in GIF. (And the 300dpi images contain 4 times as many pixels.) Speaking of which, I have downloaded various Commodore US patents in 300dpi G4 TIFF format. Various ones cover aspects of the VIC-II, SID and other stuff. I think it would be a good idea to put these on the Funet site. They cover things from a hardware construction, as opposed to programmer's, point of view. Changing subject, I want to find a connector for the PET/C64 user port, in order to make up a lead for prlink. Anyone know of a place that still sells these?
