Hi MikeTomTom. Yes, my email is current. Indeed, I got the Admin email notifying me of your Guestbook entry. Don't know what happened with your attempt to email me.

Issue 8 has arrived (yay) and with any luck, I'll be doing it next week. It even came with mounted floppies.

Hi Mike,

I noticed this myself when I was uploading the reviews. I was surprised that there was no page for MS FoxPro. I'm almost finished with this round of review-uploads — just issues 2 and 5 to go before I get teh scanning for issue 16 finished.

Hi Mike,
I got it into my head that 'MacFormat' was wrong and that 'Mac Format' was correct - possibly from searches in eBay. Now that I look more closely at it, I see that Future Publishing always uses 'MacFormat'. I shall have to mend my ways.
As always, there is no rush. I asked the seller in Mexico about issue no. 8 last Monday. She only got around to sending it last Wednesday, which is when I got the send-notification from eBay. I shall wait and see.
ta,

Hi Mike,
Issue 15 is up. Issue 8 has not yet arrived, alas.
All the best,

Hi Mike,
I am very sorry, that I put you to extra work. I did the scanning in two lots and forgot to check if I had rotated and cropped the first lot fully.
Issue no.15 is now scanned in, but requires processing still.
I will start soon uploading reviews to their respective games and apps.
thanks again!

There is no rush. Take your time.

Hi Mike,
Issue 14 is up.

Hi Mike,

Issue 12 is up. I was lucky to stumble across issue 8 by chance on eBay in Mexico and I promptly bought it. If it arrives by next Friday, then I'll do that one next Monday, otherwise, the next one in my collection is issue 14. I am unlucky that I don't have issue 13.

Kind regards,
soudesune

Hi Mike,
I'm in my stride now. Issue 12 will be coming on Tuesday-ish. I scan between 5pm and 6pm at work on Monday, crop, rotate and rename the pages on the Tuesday and I can usually get it uploaded that evening.
I'm very grateful that you are generating the PDFs.
I do think that these magazines are excellent because they explain the Mac without being condescending and it can get quite detailed. It was very new to so many people back then. It makes a very introduction to those learning about them now.
What I also like is that it puts the (now) old machines into context, something that is missing from those who are new to Macs as a hobby.

Hi Mike,

I have rescanned MF02 and uploaded the JPEGs in a zipped file to the MF02 page.
I'll be doing MF11 (April 1994) next week and with it the arrival of the first PPCs and a small announcement that Apple's CEO is looking for clone manufacturers...

Kind regards,
soudesune.

Hi Mike,
We have a good kyocera copier at work that saves the images for me. I can scan one magazine in about an hour. I need then another hour to rename the pages, check that I've missed none, crop them from B4 and rotate them.
I have MF09 almost finished. I have to crop all of the pages from p31 onwards. I hope to have the zip-file up today. I probably won't get to MF02 until October though.
Thanks again for your help,
soudesune.

No easy way to move files from one page to another that I can detect.

Me, too. But the other stuff, nice to read your answer. Smile

Hi Mike,

Thanks very much for your help. I did MF02 first at 600dpi in photocopier TIFF (which, I learnt, is a JPEG wrapped in a TIFF-wrapper). I copied them on to my wife's Mac Mini in order to reduce them down. I think that I still have the 600dpi files somewhere. Yesterday evening I got the first 21 pages of MF09 done.

I'm off on holidays for 2 weeks on Saturday, so you won't anything from me until teh beginning of October.

Hi MTT,

added "Admin" and "Super Admin" to your role in the members list.
I hope you see a black line at the top of the site now.

To go to the members list, click the numbers left from "Hello MikeTomTom"

I can't say anything about the other stuff located in that area, but to delete an user,
perform the following steps:

Tick it
Select "Delete selected users" from the Popup menu above the members list.
Click the "Update" button near the Popup menu.

Kind regards,

soudesune

Hi Mike,

That is a lot easier. I have MF02, MF05 and MF22 already zipped, albeit on a Windows 8 machine.
I'll try and upload each zip-file per entry.

Thanks for your help

I think we should set your account as an admin, are you ready?

Let me find your entry in the user's list and let me change your account level to the same level as I'm now are.

Thanks for remembering my interest in Beyond Cyberpunk. That's a great coup.

Hey MTT,

Yup, it has 10.4.11 on there as well, but boots always into 9.2.2 Smile

urrrgh, I don't have a box, and if you've seen the sunflower iMac, you know what a b*tch it is to ship anywhere (monitor on a swivel/tilt arm). My swivel/tilt arm is in very firm/good condition (they usually get too loose and rattly) but I doubt it would arrive in NSW in one piece Sad

If you know someone in Tasmania who is willing to package and post it, I will gladly pass it onto him/her for you.

PS. It has one drilled screwhole on the base, and the burner is not installed at the moment (but can be reinstalled - I believe it is either a DVD-ROM/CDRW or a SATA-CONVERTER+DVDRW. Whichever I can find.

PPS. This is the one I would rather keep, as the G5 only does "Classic Mode" yUURCH

Hi, Mike.

Guess what... I was SevenDusted again and I remembered your advice you gave me years ago. Smile
I wanted to visit you on your guestbook and just say Hi.
Greetings, master.
