Previously Unknown Softalk Top 30 List for September 1984! (as I imagine it...)

A page mockup of Peter Caylor's Forecast for the Top 30 list of an imagined "49th issues" of Softalk

I recently had the chance to combine my love for retro computing and Softalk magazine with a "homework" assignment required for a Decision Support Systems class I've been taking. We needed to exercise our skills in model-based forecasting, so I saw a great opportunity to use this assignment to take a much closer look at the time-series of data represented by the famous Top 30 software sales charts at the back of every issue of Softalk (except the first).
