Volume II of the Berkeley Macintosh User's Group is a follow-up to their ground-breaking 1988 PD-ROM (the first two initials stood for Public Domain).

Don't miss the "Meeting Minutes" on the disc, which are a fascinating chronicle of BMUG's weekly meeting, held for over a decade in an auditorium on the campus of UC Berkeley. News, tips, rumors, and the general zeitgeist of the Mac...

The books are in several formats so that you can read them on your PDA if you know what you're doing, and on virtually any word processor even if you don't know what you're doing any better than I do. If you've got Microsoft Word or Wordpad installed, click RTF format. Other formats will probably work also, but this one I guarantee. (If I can do it, you can do it. Trust me.) If...
