A-Files now complete!

I'm happy to announce that the last part of the A-chapter now has been uploaded.

The A-appendix (7 MB) contains 92 pages, about 660 entries, 180 cover pictures and 110 reviews. As is explained in the introduction: you will find here related acts with a lesser level of detail, and also some not-quite-so-related things by way of warning you... Click on the picture for download.

As for the future of File Under Jurassic Prog... Feedback has been sparse (please let me hear your thoughts!), but quite encouraging. Meanwhile I'm upgrading the other chapters so they can be published one day. Focus is on the I, J and M chapters right now, but you might be able to change my mind...

A-Files - minor corrections and new part!

I'm pleased to announce the publishing of yet another part...

Chapter As-AZ, 10 MB, 92 pages - around 250 entries, 220 pictures, 170 reviews.

Also I discovered some extremely stupid typos on the previous chapters, so I replaced the links in the previous posting with new ones (for those who printed the documents - as intended by the author - the only changes are on front and back cover and the title page).

Proudly Introducing: The A-Files

I'm proud to announce the first four parts of File Under Jurasic Rock that just have been published. Everything is downloadable from this blog or via the website.

The book is entirely free as I figured that a properly printed version would be to expensive to produce (for now at least). Feel free to print it yourself (which is recommended, I don't like reading book on the computer myself) and enjoy!

Any kind of feedback is highly appreciated. Really: any. Send an e-mail to the editor directly, leave a note on the blog or write something in the guestbook on the website. Any feedback is appreciated: what did you like, what not and what is missing or can be improved.

And most importantly: help me decide how to continue the project - shall I put out the other chapters as soon as possible (but incomplete) and improve over time, or shall we do it thoroughly but slowly with one chapter a time, but with a level of detail like the ones you're about to download...

And of course: feel free to contribute. Missing information, pictures or (for bands and labels)material to listen and write.

The chapters released so far (click on the picture for download):

Introduction - 926 kB, 32 pages. The basic stuff: the book's goals, structure, definitions, etc.

Chapter #-AG - 8 MB, 96 pages. Around 300 bands, 225 pictures, 170 reviews.

Chapter AH-AM - 8,8 MB, 100 pages. Around 300 bands, 275 pictures, 150 reviews.

Chapter AN-AR - 16 MB, 140 pages. 360 bands, 500 pictures, 265 reviews.

Also I uploaded an improved version of File Under Symfo.



It seems that only some computers have problems with the site. Please contact me with details if you're affected. It might help me fixing the problem!

Website troubles

Just noticed that what looks good at my computer at home doesn't necessarily on other machines... I apologize to those who checked the website and only got confused because everything overlaps there.

Will fix in the course of next week!

File Under Symfo available for download!

I'm in the final stages of finishing the A-files for "File Under Jurassic Rock", but have used a little time to recreate the 1998 file from "File Under Symfo" and convert it to pdf.

The file is not perfect yet (page size, some hick-ups with pictures going to the next page and the indexing - thanks to problems between the different Word versions '97 and '03) but I will try to improve this as soon as I'm done with 'the A-files'.

For now, I hope you enjoy the old work and will look forward to the things that are coming soon!
