Soft copies?  We're talking 1978, and I think I have an 800bpi 9-track 
tape, which might, just, even be readable.  And in the early days they 
were mostly photo-copies of other articles.

All my papers were interesting :-)

All double-paged, so I'll count physical pages.  Vol 1 No 1 was two pages, 
Vol 1 No 2 was fourteen pages (many photocopies, including one of Ken and 
his Chess WMD (in modern terms)), and it sort of went from there.

Oh, and a few sketches of what looks like a toad rampant, bananas gules, 
with peanuts (this *was* the 70s, after all, when Bjelke-Jo reigned in the 
Deep North).
