Splendid! You are to be commended sir.

I wished to read this on my [[VILE PROPRIETARY READING DEVICE]] so I
took the liberty of glomming all the jpgs into a giant pdf hairball.


Here ya go! https://www.noisebridge.net/images/5/50/ZIP02.pdf


There are some duplicated pages as wget found some multiple page
versions, sorry 'bout that -- too lazy to right-click-download all the
individual pages.


Also I'm too lazy to upload it to github, but here in all its glory
are the 13 lines of Python what did the job.
------------------------------------------8<------------------------------------------------------8<------------------------------------------------
#!/usr/bin/python

"""" makepdf: take all the jpgs in the current directory, sort them,
and combine them into a pdf ebook for viewing on vile proprietary systems  """

# you need reportlab and PIL for this. Get them here:
# reportlab (for PDF generation) http://www.reportlab.com/software/opensource/
# PIL (for reading in images) http://www.pythonware.com/products/pil/
# no closed source was used in the glomming of these jpgs!

# to get all image files: $wget wget -r -l 1 -U Mozilla -t 1 -nd -D
zine.noisebridge.net -A jpg
http://zine.noisebridge.net/2012/05/zip02-is-now-online-full-clickable-list-of-contents/

from reportlab.pdfgen import canvas
from reportlab.lib.pagesizes import letter
from reportlab.platypus import  Image
import glob

c = canvas.Canvas("ZIP.pdf",pagesize=letter) # create the empty output pdf

imfiles = glob.glob("./*.jpg") # get a list of all the jpgs in the current dir

imfiles.sort() # KINDA in the right order

for f in imfiles:

    print "adding file " + f
    pageimage = Image(f, letter[0], letter[1]) # read in the image
    pageimage.drawOn(c,0,0)   # stuff it in the pdf
    c.showPage()  # render the page

c.save() # write the pdf file
