NEW -- Volume 9 of the Nakka-Rocketry CD is now optionally available as a downloadable file. The file is ISO format (2.7 Gbyte) which is an archive file that contains an identical copy of the CD contents. Once downloaded, the CD files are extracted using a compression/decompresson software such as WinRAR. Merci beaucoup to Jérôme Bise for his dauntless effort in figuring out how to do all this.
Due to popular demand, Volume 9 of my website is available for purchase on a CD. Over 700 copies of this CD have been sold around the world. |
This CD allows the user fast and easy off-line viewing of my website. Convenient while working in "the field". Additionally, the CD provides a permanent record of the site. Note that Vol.9 retains the full contents of Volumes 1 thru 8.
As a bonus, hundreds of hi-resolution photos are included, most of which are not posted on my website. Additionally, well over one hundred video clips are added to the CD, including some "archival" footage of my early rocketry experiments and static tests. As well, dozens of rocketry related articles and reports.
The Nakka-Rocketry CD comes with a glossy, full-colour label as illustrated. All files burned onto the CD have been scanned using the latest anti-virus software. Over 2 Gigabytes of data, in total! (Note: due to large volume of data, Vol.9 is burned onto a data DVD, rather than CD).
All the proceeds I receive from the CD sales will be used to offset the ever-escalating costs associated with maintaining and expanding my website. Any additional revenue will be pumped back into amateur rocketry research which will provide for future content of my website that will hopefully prove to be of benefit to AER enthusiasts around the world.
New for Volume 9 - As a bonus, CD includes scans of my earliest rocketry experimental notebooks covering the period from 1972 through 1979. These are hi-resolution scans (totalling 150 Megbytes) of the first four volumes of my notebooks that I diligently kept during this early developmental period of my amateur rocketry experimentation.
