I just ordered this book

I will be scanning it and uploading it to archive.org.

Expect an update within a month or so.

I hopefully plan to machine translate the book.

That's all for now.

I'd be interested to see how well a machine translation of something like this turns out. I'm a Japanese translator so I've seen quite a few, shall we say, questionable translations based off of machine translation, but it is getting better. I would offer to help but unfortunately I don't have the time for something like this, although I could potentially help if you had a few questions.

I also own a couple of Japanese books about Macintosh modification and the 2400c that were published in the early 2000s, but I'm not sure where they are at the moment.

I appreciate the enthusiasm. If you find those books, check if they are already on archive.org. If they aren't consider scanning them and uploading the scans to archive.org.

Thank you for your interest!

I eagerly await the machine translation. I have this book, and there are a lot of nice pictures in it that I wish I can understand the captions to. 

Cheers,

I just ordered a copy of the Perfect Guide, having forgotten about this post. I’ll scan and upload mine as well.

Turns out that the copy I got is in nicer condition than I expected. I'd rather not flatten it and crease the spine for a flatbed scan, so I'm looking into an alternative way of scanning it now. (I don't even have a flatbed scanner here anyway.) Will update when I get this done.
