Post-Apocalyptic Dispatch (#21): Professor Gigabyte's Data Salvage

Near the dry, dusty edge of town lies an old rectangular shack resting on deflated wheels, a pre-Fall era concession truck that might have once sold hot dogs, tacos, or other treats. The old posters and menus that once decorated the truck are now plastered over with hand-painted signs that read “Professor Gigabyte’s Data Salvage - Fees Vary”. A steady chortling sound emanates from the disabled vehicle’s hood, but it is obvious the deteriorating “roach coach” isn’t going anywhere soon.

The area around the pathetically-old truck is a dry, grassy yard littered with countless bits of discarded machinery, defunct electronics, and computer parts. Virtually all of these discarded parts are covered in rust and dirt, and are well beyond any possibility of repair.

The small niche business known as Professor Gigabyte’s Data Salvage is run by a colorful former tech looter named “Gigabyte“. Specializing in computer salvage, Gigabyte retired to the outskirts of the City of Styx after the business of ‘looting became too hairy for his tastes, using his ill-gotten gains to set up a “legitimate” business recovering data from old computers and electronic storage devices, unlocking the secrets (some mundane, others quite valuable) stored within them.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
