Well, nerd that I am, I went searching for the Hinkles (I'm usually good at finding people on the Internet)...can't find a trace of them so far...just mentions in old stories and articles on various ADAM pages....

  Okay, I'll recant a little... "vital" was probably too strong a word, but I think wherever practicable it is worth doing some due diligence to contact the owner for permission. After all, it's their work so it's theirs to do with as they please.

  I'm sorry, but this is exactly why a lot of ADAM information will be lost to 
  the ages...

  technically you're right...but realistically??? After almost 30 years, the 
  Hinkle's probably don't even have copies of these items themselves...does 
  anyone even know where they are? Are they even still alive? Do they even 
  still have a remote interest in the ADAM?

  Maybe I should remove all the newsletters from my ADAM web page. With the 
  exception of the HTML'd Expandable Computer News, of which I got permission 
  of Darrell Sage's widow to reprint them (out of respect, not out of fear of 
  getting sued...she sent me Xmas cards for years after his death)...I did not 
  get permission from the original owners to scan or post any of the 
  newsletters there.

  Again...technically you are right...but it reaches a point where it becomes 
  just plain silly...
