At one point in time I owned all of the Amygdala Journal (sadly not complete as I let my subscription lapse  sad). Even worse in a living space reconsolidation (big house->little apartment) my collection did not make the transition  cry ! That said I'm looking for back issues. What I'd like is to pay for xeroxed copies that way neither party is bereft of a valuable fractal resource. Regarding slides that accompanied some (all?) issues, If you trust me, I'd scan them, then return them with the images as .png or .jpeg files. As to why I might do this, it is mostly because while much of what is available in terms of technique is quite good, I've found that some things discovered early on have not yet been implemented. Think of it as wandering through old mining claims and slowly gathering overlooked gold  wink

p.s. I'm also starting to recover links to GEOCITIES Fractal Report as well. Yes Sturgeon's Law applies: 90% of everything is crap, but I'm collecting the 10% that is priceless  cheesy
p.s.s. For those who don't know who Rollo Silver was, consider that before many of you were born, Rollo was exploring the M-Set using an Apple-2e with an accelerator card! True pioneer in the finest tradition of 'Amateur'!

    At one point in time I owned all of the Amygdala Journal....  I'm looking for back issues.

Have you tried contacting Roger Bagula ??  He may have such documents lying around.

    I'm also starting to recover links to GEOCITIES Fractal Report as well.

There seems to be a lot at:
    http://www.geocities.ws/fractalreport/fr.htm
and
    http://reocities.com/CapeCanaveral/launchpad/5113/fr.htm

    For those who don't know who Rollo Silver was, consider that before many of you were born, Rollo was exploring
    the M-Set using an Apple-2e with an accelerator card!  True pioneer in the finest tradition of 'Amateur'!

Yes, I remember Roland Silver.  Last I heard, he was located in New Mexico (either around Taos or Santa Fe).  But not sure if he is still alive, because I believe he was born in the mid-1930's.  He was a big FractInt user, and also used MandelZot.  I do know that his old web sites are no longer active.

Paul,

Thanks for the leads! I'd found the GEOCITIES links while searching for info on Amygdala ironically. Regarding Rollo, the obit in the Taos News said: "Roland Lazarus Silver, 80, (Rollo) of New York, Boston and Taos, passed away on Thursday, October 23, 2008." And as near as I can tell he pretty much let go of the web sometime before 2000. I used to email back and forth with him about fractals and fine art as well. I really wish I'd gotten around to buying one of his high resolution fractal prints back then.

Actually, I think it was called the:  "AMYGDALA NEWSLETTER" - The Newsletter of the Mandelbrot Set.

I seem to get more valid hits on searching under that name, than using the word Journal.

I have issues 31 to 35. I can scan them for you if you are interested.

Another very interesting site which seems to have disappeared was the "Mandelbrot Dazibao" by the french programmer "Jark". It offered a lot of programs in QuickBASIC! I have a copy of the website if someone is interested.

Yes! I'd be very interested. Tell me more about the Jark's website if you would smiley

I'd also be interested - among my old school pursuits, I still run QuickBASIC in a DOS emulator because it was far easier to figure out the emulator than it was to learn another programming variant.  ha ha

Hello hsmyers and Ryan D,

Thank you for your replies. I will send you the documents by e-mail (Ryan D, you can give me your email by PM).

BTW, here are some links for the BASIC lovers:

FreeBASIC:
http://www.freebasic.net/

QB64:
http://www.qb64.net/

PANORAMIC:
http://panoramic-language.pagesperso-orange.fr/

Latest version of the PANORAMIC editor:
http://panoramic-language.pagesperso-orange.fr/PANORAMIC_EDITOR.zip

My own fractal programs, made with PANORAMIC and FreeBASIC, with some data files from Amygdala:

I use FreeBASIC quite a bit.  It has a mode to support QBASIC and QuickBASIC language.  One of these days, I'll learn a modern language.  :-)  And I'll see if I can find my copies of Amygdala.

You could take it slowly, a step at a time, and try Visual Basic (the Express version is free to download).  Then move on to C++, and who knows, maybe C# and C.Net    cheesy

I have now scanned issues 31-32 of Amygdala. There are 24 pages, for a total of about 9 megabytes. I will scan my other issues ASAP.

You will need some more coffee smiley Issues  33-34 have been sent.

Also, I have uploaded an archive of the "Mandelbrot Dazibao" website to DropBox:
