Any idea eactly which fiche reader you have? I have one that DEC FS used
to lug around on site visits.
I'll dig it out tomorrow (if I remember) and make a note of exactly
which one I have.
I've never noticed an issue with reading the fiche I have - but then
most of my fiche came with the reader and so
obviously matched up. But I do have some fiche that came to me
separately (not all DEC fiche, but all DEC-related)
and that all looks good too.
How can you tell whether fiche is intended for 42x or 52x or whatever?
(I had a quick look at one or two and I couldn't
see anythig obvious ...)
BTW: I did semi-catalogue what I have (i.e. listing the fiche part
number and the documents contained therein).
Has anyone thought of putting together some sort of registry?
