Has anyone got a copy of version 05.009.4 of the ND-500 Reference Manual? The latest one listed here is the .3 version, but there's at least one later version. I used to have a copy, but I kept it in the office and someone threw it away when I wasn't paying attention. TArntsen 13:41, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

I got the .4 version of the manual. As it is almost identical to the .3 version on bitsavers I didn't put scanning of it on my high priority list. It only differs on 12 pages, but I will scan the changed pages and post a link in a couple of days. Gandalf 21:34, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! Much appreciated. BTW, the .3 version on bitsavers suffers from two black pages for every chapter change, presumably because the original was a ring binder and had chapter separators inserted. So there are some jumps in page numbers, but I'm not sure if any real content is actually missing. For my ND-500 emulator it's ok so far, but I also have a paper copy of a much older version which I'm also using.TArntsen 14:20, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
Here are a temporary link to the changed pages. It will stay up until I have scanned the full manual sometime in the future. I've seen the black pages in the manuals from bitsavers. It comes from a red page (for hardware manuals) used for the change of chapters but it often only have the chapter name or a short index. There are some colored pages with contents in some manuals, I think that the "ND-110 instruction set" is one.Gandalf 21:23, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! However, the .tiff files give me a 403, forbidden - so there's something with the access there. You are right about the ND-110 instruction set manual btw, the coloured pages are still readable though.TArntsen 09:43, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
Dohhh! Directory mask was rwx--, changed to rw-r-r so it should work now. I was aware of that problem before and thought I should test it but it slipped my mind. Sorry! Gandalf 09:54, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, got them now. TArntsen 10:45, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

literature of Bert Thomas

I sent a mail to Bert asking if he still had any of the ND documentation and floppies. He answered that the documentation went to recycling, and the floppies to a Swede (Burbas?). Now we know. --Torfinn (talk) 00:12, 17 July 2016 (UTC)
