Hello together,

 

Last year Michael Current, Thomas Cherryhomes, and Kevin Savetz really did a men's job (from 1982 Blade Runner) when publishing the up to 177 GB expanded archive of:

 

Dorsett Educational System Lesson Cassettes:

https://atariwiki.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=Dorsett%20Educational%20System%20Lesson%20Cassettes

 

Well, it is nearly finished, just the following ones are missing, please see below.

 

If there is anyone out there in the galaxy, who may can help the community with the missing ones, please let us know. Everylasting fame on you is for sure.

 

Thank you so much in adavnce.

 

List of tapes still left to digitize:

- General Shop Practices:

Oa1 Tool Identification Lesson, Part 1 (B)
Oa7 Discussion of a Two-Cycle Engine (X)
Oa8 Use of Micrometers and Calipers (X)

(B) Indicates a bad data track
(X) Indicates the tapes were unarchivable due to degauss.

- Health Services Career:

Hc5 Medical History (X)
Hc6 Extended Care (X)

(X) This lesson is not included - the cassette that we have was blank (probably accidentally erased sometime after it was duplicated.)

- Physics:

Ph16 Theory of Relativity

Ph16 does seem to be truncated, and probably should be reconstructed from the Atari cassettes.

(Please not Einstein with the may hidden world formula. Who knows?)

 

Maybe someone is close to here:

"

TO THE SECRETARY OF STATE OF THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA:

We, the undersigned Incorporators,

NAME NUMBER STREET CITY STATE

Loyd G. Dorsett 601 Berry Rd. Norman, Oklahoma
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"

and may can ask Mr. Dorsett? If he is the founder of the above.

Probably a long shot again but does anybody know what happened to the (re)release of the series by Datamost under the MindWare label?

 

Details here: http://archive.org/stream/1986-07-anticmagazine/Antic_Vol_5-03_1986-07_Degas_Contest_Winners#page/n17/mode/2up

 

No mention of the cartridge but these are the Courseware programs, right?
