  3. That was one of the strangest things to me, when our house was built. I have a bundle of coax cables left un-terminated in the basement next to the electrical box, probably 15 lines in all. I have absolutely no use for coax line in our house... I had explained how I wanted internet in all the rooms to be able to be plugged into directly, but I really don't think the contractor quite understood what I meant... obviously. On the plus side, the coax will make a nice pull cord to run cat5 lines someday. You're probably not that far off, population density, compared to where I live. Lowest population in all the US (at least the lower 48, not sure about Alaska these days?), yet I'm in I believe the 7th largest state, by area. Still... internet speeds kinda suck. I don't think it's helping, that a large number of folks are online now, that weren't ten years ago. More traffic on the same infrastructure, slows everybody down. Yet one more reason I'm not really a fan of modern phones. You guys are definitely getting screwed on the HBO side of things. Small wonder that such business practices might encourage piracy. Is Amazon Prime an option for getting HBO up there? Or is that not allowed due to Bell's contract / rights holdings?
  4. Recommended game music player

    Thanks for that link, I read another article on that site worth a read if anyone is interested in this sort of thing: https://www.lifewire.com/hi-res-audio-4134630 I think what made me aware of it the most was music during the end credits of movies on blu-ray discs. It just sounds so much more full than any CD I've heard. Makes some sense though, if I recall, blu-ray is 48 or 96-bit, versus CD at 16-bit. I may have numbers incorrect, but I know the audio portion of a blu-ray is quite sizable.

  6. Looking to Mass Donate many magazines

    So long as they're old enough to be scanned (strategy guides are beholden to the same self-imposed cutoff dates we use for magazines), there's no reason those can't be scanned as well. Our current cutoff dates are: December 2008 for defunct publications December 2003 for publications still in print I don't know if this is official policy (it's been a while since anyone scanned a strategy guide around here), but I tend to think strategy guides should be regarded as "publications still in print" since they aren't periodicals and thus could have been made available by the publisher/retailer for a much longer stretch of time than a magazine. Which would mean anything published up through Dec. 2003 is fair game.
  7. Looking to Mass Donate many magazines

    Hey, quick question I have some strategy guides from Prima/Brady and a ton from Versus Books. Did you need them as well? I ask as I see you only seem to be hosting the unofficial guides ATM for Brady. Just wondering if there was some stipulation or something you couldn't do.
  8. Looking to Mass Donate many magazines

    Don't worry - I didn't get a message either. It's just as well, though. I've already got a pile of donated mags I'll be working on for a while. Actually, what I'm really jealous of is how quickly Phillyman responded with a PM. Maybe I should end all of my PMs to him with a photo of a stack of unscanned mags from now on.
  9. Looking to Mass Donate many magazines

    Hehe - no worries. TBH the only reason I didn't tag you was it wasn't letting me put in more than 2 people - so I figured "archivist" would've been better. ...either that, or the Gamepro reveiw avatar may have psychologically prevented me from doing so as well? Who knows! ;P
  10. Looking to Mass Donate many magazines

    Wow, thanks a bunch! Wasn't even expecting to be any form of "patron" - so thanks! =D Will respond more later, but just wanted to say I read what you wrote and will figure something out to get them to you all. glad to be of help! ^_^
  11. If I can get them shipped to Canada, I will take them off your hands. I work here but did not get a PM from you. But my feels aren't hurt. Honest.
  12. Hey there guys - my name is Mike Vallas and I'm a former employee of Ziff-Davis/Sendai between 1991-2001 and have worked on practically all the magazines we did in that era. The reason I'm posting is that I'm in the midst of purging my home of old stockpile of mags when brought an old friend of mine to hang out. When I told him I was going to pitch these mags into the recycling bin he suggested to check you guys out and to see if you wanted them. Not only am I impressed at what you've done/are doing, but I've got a BUNCH of mags that you are missing that will fill your gaps! ^_^ First off, I believe I can finish out your entire Expert Gamer, EGM2 collection! I took a look at what you are missing and have practically all those issues in my "to recycle" pile. Here are the issues I currently have mint-condition copies of: Expert Gamer you currently need that I have: Issues 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 68, 69, 70, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77. EGM2 issues I can provide that you need: 25, 28, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 47, 49. I also have various other things I've done, like a LOT of extra Versus Books/Prima/Brady strategy guides you seemingly do not have. I don't really have time to scan all these (after all, the point is to remove them! Not keep them around ;P) so I was wondering if we can arrange something where I can donate these. I've sent PMs to whom I believe are the people who work at this site, but feel free to message me back and we can talk! ^_^ Thx again! ^_^ Mike Vallas
