  1. I promise you the "100MB limit" over HTTP thing is, in fact, a real thing—basically, it's a security tradeoff we have with a service in order to allow us to keep things running smoothly, and to alter that agreement would cost us upwards of $200/mo. Unfortunately, this is the one area where it dings users. I'm able to get around this because I have root server access, but that's something we obviously keep locked down to a few people max. I've been an advocate of self-hosting files on the server exactly because I've seen what's happened to places like here and am trying to prevent an inadvertent wipe of data. I'm looking at using plupload to fix this and effectively eliminate the issue, but it's just been a lower priority right now. Also hi Depressor!
  2. Hi. Sonic Retro, Sega Retro, Retro CDN and NEC Retro are all actually my sites, so thanks for the warm feelings you clearly have. Also, I'm a woman. The only reason lower quality magazines scans are on the site is actually due to a HTTP upload limit; obviously, as the owner I can get around that, and I'm looking at ways to make multi-part transfers that alleviate that issue, but until then, there's a hard 100MB limit. I understand people choose to downsample to get around that, and while unfortunate, it's just the reality of the situation. I honestly had meant to come back and basically say "hey, you're free to clean up and edit these as you will as I upload them" but got sidetracked working on some discrete logic arcade game documentation that, ironically, came up in one of the issues I was cross-referencing. So yes, you are free to clean up, edit and redistribute whatever I upload.
  3. ...well, that's been a whole thing. Anyway, since I normally distribute as PDF on my site, here's a CBR preview for you--note that I didn't do a ton of manual correction on these in terms of skew (because, as you probably guessed with the OCR comment, I'm mainly interested in bulk extracting text.)メガドライブFan 1990-12.cbr?dl=0 If that works, I'll send over the rest to you all to mirror as well.
  4. The magazines were acquired myself and then scanned, yes.
  5. Hey there! I have about 45 full magazine scans (~250MB-350MB), all Japanese, OCRed, that I want to give to you guys (if only because my hosting setup can't handle the OCRed versions and someone should have them.) I've tried to use your "Create+" function, but the titles don't even exist in your Publication DB and it seems there's no real recourse to getting them. What would you all like me to do to get these to you?
