Over the time I have spent at Hubbard Harpsichords,
I have been responsible for all sorts of writing. The 1979 rewrite
of our French manual was accomplished in longhand. This was put
into typescript by our then office wiz, Deirdre Reade and sent off to
Palo Alto to be computerized - it certainly amazed us! By the
time the Flemish single was redrawn in 1984, it was I who entered all
the text - on an Osborne CP-M totable using WordStar. And so it
has progressed . . .
is a lot of words, most of them well past their sell-by dates but with
a fair number of keepers, as well. Of those, several seem to me
to be the sort of thing that it would be more convenient for some folks
to have on paper than on the screen. On this page you'll find
a grab bag of these instructional and explanatory or gruesomely technical
pieces. They have each been edited for this forum and rendered into
.pdf form for free downloading. More to come as they become available.
