Please take this into consideration when reading the articles. There are no plans to come out with version 2. However, we do plan on periodically updating the information on the web version.
The CD version of the book has pricing information as well as a dealer directory. Since the prices are out of date and many of the dealers/collectors may no longer be collecting the machine we have purposely left this information out of the web version.

The "PC" (Photo Credits) button will, if active, tell you information about the current picture. Such as, whose machine it is, or who took the picture. If the button is not active, then the person does not wish us to use his or her name.
