Too darned hot ....

Gosh darned if it isn't hotter than hades at the moment in this part of the world. Jason has been dealing with scorching temps approaching 50 degrees and even in NZ we have seen nearly 30 degrees which is just ridiculous!! That's meant neither of us have been too keen on spending time in front of computers at the present time. Good news is that I am now back on normal work weeks (five days) so I will be getting the scanner out of the basement and looking to clear the backlog of donated mags in the near future.

On a more serious note .... if you cannot read the information on the Download page on how to obtain access to the site don't expect me to reply to emails sent to me asking for access. And CAPSLOCKING your email is only going to result in it being deleted uber quickly. The requirements around access are spelt out on the page in black and white. It's sad that I have to state the obvious from time to time but I do get sick of getting the same old emails all the time...

This is my last six day week for six months so once I have had a rest the scanner will be back in operation once more. Yay!!

Site Issues ....

I am currently experiencing some issues related to the weather here where the heat is resulting in abnormally warm temps in my basement. I think this is resulting in the broadband router dropping out which requires me to turn the device off. I have taken steps to mitigate it, as in opened the outside door to try and drop the ambient temps in there but it may also be the router is on the way out so if the site goes down it may be down for a little while as I replace the router.Sorry about that but it is truly ugly here with the temps/humidity at present. :-(

Jason has submitted issue 31 of this title. Although this has been available previously thanks to Thumpnugget I feel Jason's scan is better quality (no overwhitening etc) so have updated the link accordingly.

Having a great break from things ....

Good news!!! I have been having a really nice time catching up with relatives from Oz and the UK and taking enforced time away from scanning to watch a movie, go shopping and general just lazying around has resulted in a really relaxed Kiwi  :-)

The upshot of all this is that if I continue to apply a modicum of common sense in regards to spare time and spread it a little more evenly between real life and the website I cannot see myself closing the site down. Unfortunately, it took a bit of a meltdown to finally listen to kitsunebi77, Jason and others telling me to slow down to prevent burn out so belated thanks guys for the advice and everyone can rest assured that when the Brits leave in a week or two things will get back to normal around here albeit at a slightly slower pace than previously.

I hope you are all having a great break. Oh, and I will be catching up with member submitted mags at that time as well so don't fret if you have submitted files. They will be checked and uploaded soon!!
