Abstract

Supplies and suppliers are often given short shrift by vendors of computer systems. The simple statement, “Plan for supplies,” is often the only clue vendors give you that computer supplies will be a big part of your life. This is unfortunate because the cost of computer supplies is not at all trivial. Whether you need printer ribbons that cost $5 apiece or disk packs that cost $1,200 apiece, you will keep buying these items, over and over again, for the life of the system.

THE THIRTEENTH PC. Our guess is that most people subscribing to this periodical have more than one PC at home. You use, are in charge of, or are around more than one PC. And if you are particularly blessed, you're in charge of all of them.

Abstract

INTEL PUSHES 386. There's a move afoot in the MS‐DOS world to get rid of the 286 machines in favor of the 386SX and pure 386 machines. The prime mover in this action appears to be Intel, the maker of both chips, with a strong assist from PC Magazine, a publication of Ziff‐Davis Company, the same firm that publishes PC Week, and a number of other computer industry periodicals.

Abstract

PRINT SHOP. It's near the end of the year. Your budget is nearly expended, but it is the holiday season. What can you purchase for the beleaguered staff bored with MARC input screens and new releases of software that never seem to arrive? For about fifty bucks why not try Print Shop?

Abstract

The following story is based on a real‐life situation. It actually happened. We're telling it hoping to provide some sense of optimism in that it is possible to recover from disasters like this, though perhaps not completely. We are also printing this in Computers in Libraries, a sister publication, to reach as many people as possible.

Abstract

LABEL MAKERS. We're all used to taking the grand view of computers in libraries. We spend thousands of dollars on terminals and PCs, buy huge minicomputers (compared to a micro, that isn't a contradiction), and often pay thousands just for a program to make things work, increase productivity, ad infinitum. One look at your monthly bibliographic utility bill will prove this is true.

Abstract

As computers become integrated into our work environments ergonomics is becoming more and more of an issue. Productivity gains notwithstanding, how comfortable are our CPUs? For people who use computers eight hours a day, the answer is: Not very.

Abstract

So this is OCLC, where the fixed fields are at the top of the record and you type the first three characters of the title, comma, next two letters, comma, … and here's something that looks familiar, but it's called an M300 Workstation. But here's Microsoft and Lotus 1–2–3! Maybe things aren't so different after all.

Abstract

Looks at the use of programming editors, especially ′Sidekick′ – discusses the relative merits and problems with this particular software, as well as discussing the new version which is now available. Suggests that businesses which are currently upgrading their hardware in order to run Windows could donate their old equipment to local libraries, where they could be put to good use. Shows how the use of a short program can make browsing through READ.ME files much easier.
