The following are articles I wrote for the Waukegan Apple Users Group (WAUG) newsletter.
The newsletters were distributed to other users groups to share articles. We received newsletters from other users group, but somehow we never used any outside material and the WAUG newsletter was wholly created by contributions from the WAUG membership.
One person called us and said he wasn't a user's group, but wanted to reprint the articles in his monthly magazine. The magazine was Computer Trader Magazine (CTM), Chet Lambert was the editor.
About the same time, the WAUG received a diskette from the International Apple Corps (IAC). On that disk, someone had taken the time to retype one of my articles for electronic distribution. Rather than suffer the typos of someone else and have them put my name to it, I decided to send the original disk files to the IAC.
It is probably from there, that the Canadian National Apple Users Group got hold of the articles and starting reprinting them in the Maple Orchard magazine.
While President of the WAUG, I wrote the monthly introduction and started writing a series on the new Apple II operating system called ProDOS. The series on ProDOS, I titled "A Pro Looks at ProDOS". I was working for the software publishing firm, Micro Lab in Highland Park, IL, at the time and of the members of the WAUG, I was one of the few being paid to use my programming skills on the Apple. At one time I tried to splinter off another series on a more technical nature of the use of ProDOS. That series I entitled, "TECH: ProDOS"
