Hi, my name is Bob Greenyer and welcome to RemoteView.ICU

On the 18th November 2021, I announced that my friend Sho in Japan had obtained, from the author, verbal permission for me to scan and publish Dr. Takaaki Matsumoto’s 1989-1999 collected works. Dr. Matsumoto is a life-long nuclear scientist who leveraged his experience in radiographic photography and more, to gain unique insights into what was going on in his simple to conduct experiments.

On the morning of the 19th November 2021, I spent about 2.5 hours developing a good scanning approach to use for capturing this very important document.

My process will produce a clean A4, 600dpi greyscale scan, with Optical Character Recognised (OCR’d) text, so the digital work will be easily searchable. Below is the link to the latest version.

Steps to the Discovery of Electro-Nuclear Collapse, Matsumoto, T. (Draft 07: pp. 0-91) LATEST VERSION DOWNLOAD

Given that the process development took around 1.5 hours and the scanning and cleanup took about 1 hour for 10 pages, I expect the whole book, of 289 pages, to take around 30 hours total to scan and clean. I shall do this as and when I can and update the link above.

The first 10 pages come in at 42.9 kB per page, however they are not image heavy and so it is likely that the whole book, without further optimisations, will be far in excess of 12MB, the first test implies. I predict the book, without further optimisations, will be around 150MB. Optimisation may take another 6 hours or so and I will probably put this out as the ‘raw copy version’. Further improvements may include adding hyperlinks to papers in the work.

You will see that there are grammatical and broader language errors in this raw copy, however, I think it is valuable to first have a 1:1 version freely available, before more time is spent to correct the language etc.

Correcting the language for optional print on demand

My ultimate aim was always to make a ‘print on demand’ version, which will be affordable and convenient for those that want a quality bound copy, for use as a text-book reference, without the hassle of printing and holding together nearly three hundred sheets of loose paper. This is where you might be able to help me.

I want this to have corrected language and updated images where better source can be found and possibly add an addendum, with some of his papers that are referenced in the index, but that are not included in this collection. So I need a few volunteers to help proof read and correct the text.

If you want to help with this process, please let me know. We would work collectively in a common google or office docx first, ideally the latter, so that formulas can be incorporated, with a few teams working on sections of the work. As I have said, I will be doing OCR on the original, so we will be able to have a reasonably good start point to work from.

The reward for those that help, would be a free printed copy of the finished work and a credit in the book for contributing to its production. I need a few dedicated people that are willing to put in the time and know how to work with docx and formulae. I want this to be a very high quality production. Let me know if you are interested.

To reiterate, the latest version of the 1:1 scanned version will be linked off this post above as and when available, so check back for the latest updates.
