No! We should get you a carriage clock, or an embossed wallet, or something. ;) Anyway, thirty posts to go...

And with the way this thread is going, it'll not be long until he gets to 1000, let's hope he doesn't go around the clock at 999 back to 0!!

OK, enough idle banter, let's bring the thread back into topic!

Congratulations for having all the scans online!!! Now, would it be possible to have all Megatapes online? (pretty please...)

Not that I mind, I've got Mort's DVD :)

OK, now we can resume talking about Gordon, Iain and T-Rex...

I once owned a pair of trousers that shade, but they were devoured by ocelots on the South Beach at Tenby.

This has been an often requested addition (although maybe it's just numerous requests from yourself! ;-) ) to the site and it's on my to do list, but I plan to add them when I have the dynamic issue contents system in place, but before I do that, I need to convert the remaining "Features" on the site to my DB format. It's all very slow and boring, thus why it's taking so long, oh and the fact that I'm lazy and am also (sort of!) working on my master's project.

If the Megatapes aren't there within the next year, get on my case about it again! :-D

Silly me saying that all issues were now online, how could I have forgotten about the great issue 107 that came out in March 2002.

It was now been rectified, and the scans of 107 are now online.

Of course, there no link to them on the front page yet, as I'd have to increase a table by a row and that would screw up the layout of other things, which would mean those things would have to be changed and then the words wouldn't equal the letters and black would turn into white.. etc. wibble wibble..etc..

Guess the scans aren't too popular these days, as I've just realised that all the scans hosted on my cafebaron.com site/domain were dead due to the domain name expiring (DOH! you'd think my host would inform me of such things!).

It appears to have been like this for around 3 weeks.

I have changed the links to point to a temp url which is working at the moment and hopefully I can get back the domain name before it falls into the hands of bloody cyber squatting scum!

Maybe it's down to how often people check them these days. Because I have one of Mort's DVDs, I only check the scans when I'm writing about something that needs research in Zzap! and am too lazy to get off my arse and get the DVD from the other side of the room. I did notice that issue 30-something was offline the other day, but just assumed it was a temporary glitch.

Well I got them back last night. But the domain is back in use already.

It's very weird that I got no notification of the impending doom of my domain, normally you are inundated with warnings and spam from other company trying to get you to transfer over to them. But you get what you pay for with Powweb I guess. :)
