LOL. What a way to go though. Thanks heaps and have a good one Phillyman

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 10:37 PM)

Well I gotta go for tonight, wife is becoming a godmother tomorrow.....so I may perish once I step foot in that church.....only thing worth looking forward to is the all you can eat Brazilian steakhouse we are going to afterwards :) #DeathByMeat

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 10:35 PM)

I just downloaded EGM2 Issue 7 and it took 90 seconds and came down intact

@  KiwiArcader : (24 September 2016 - 10:31 PM)

Mind you I can't talk. OGM went down after getting half a million hits in one day

@  KiwiArcader : (24 September 2016 - 10:30 PM)

I see your reasoning is valid Obiwan

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 10:30 PM)

happens from time to time, one of the reasons I want to upgrade and also move to another server :)

@  Sean697 : (24 September 2016 - 10:29 PM)

Monster sized

@  Sean697 : (24 September 2016 - 10:29 PM)

i still haven't been able to download this on stern EGM files. Will try again.

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 10:29 PM)

yup, we went down for 4 minutes

@  Sean697 : (24 September 2016 - 10:29 PM)

Yes

@  KiwiArcader : (24 September 2016 - 10:28 PM)

WTH? I lost RM for a few minutes there. Did we kill it with all the shouting?

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 10:10 PM)

at least you will have a Google Drive until I can find a host that can support both of us in our current form and into the future

@  KiwiArcader : (24 September 2016 - 10:09 PM)

LOL.Thank you muchly. I'll commence uploading and get you a directory setup for newer content

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 10:07 PM)

@  KiwiArcader : (24 September 2016 - 10:06 PM)

But if we hosted off Retromags server then no. LOL

@  KiwiArcader : (24 September 2016 - 10:05 PM)

If I were to be able to put everything on there then yes

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 10:05 PM)

so you need $120 for the year?

@  KiwiArcader : (24 September 2016 - 10:03 PM)

The 1TB plan is $10US per month I think

@  kitsunebi77 : (24 September 2016 - 09:58 PM)

Sorry, was away for a bit. Yeah, the next button goes to issue 2. My bad.

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 09:58 PM)

@KiwiArcader, how much is the Google Drive you are looking at?

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 09:56 PM)

I only use Edge to download Firefox :)

@  E-Day : (24 September 2016 - 09:54 PM)

You should use Edge, not IE :D

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 09:53 PM)

same in IE, which I never use

@  E-Day : (24 September 2016 - 09:53 PM)

I was asking kitsunebi :)

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 09:53 PM)

takes me to issue 2, with no cover

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 09:52 PM)

I have a Google Drive but its the free one with 15GB

@  E-Day : (24 September 2016 - 09:51 PM)

and when you click on NEXT under the issue one cover, where does that go?

@  E-Day : (24 September 2016 - 09:49 PM)

i copied it out of a message i sent to Phillyman on facebook. but i saw he was on here so i pasted it here

@  kitsunebi77 : (24 September 2016 - 09:48 PM)

If I follow the link from facebook it takes me to issue 1

@  KiwiArcader : (24 September 2016 - 09:48 PM)

Re your editing comment earlier. I don't do a lot myself now. Mainly straightening. Some of the files submitted by other members I just put straight up as I have so little time so quality can be variable. I'd rather edit marktrade's stuff or my own at this point.

@  kitsunebi77 : (24 September 2016 - 09:47 PM)

??? It's a link to facebook?

@  E-Day : (24 September 2016 - 09:47 PM)

okay. for me it goes to issue 3 unless i use another browser. must be a caching issue on my end

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 09:46 PM)

it is

@  E-Day : (24 September 2016 - 09:45 PM)

Actually, can you go to https://www.retromag...s-guide-issue-1, click NEXT and tell me what issue that brings you to? It should be issue 2 with no cover

@  KiwiArcader : (24 September 2016 - 09:45 PM)

If people donate enough to allow me to purchase a 1TB Google Drive plan I'll upload everything there. Download speeds are fantastic and with no restrictions that I am aware of.

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 09:45 PM)

@E-day - Thanks, I will sit down and fix Tips and Tricks tomorrow

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 09:44 PM)

If I can find a deal, that could accommodate both of us....I have no issues with it.

@  E-Day : (24 September 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Super NES Buyer's Guide section is all fixed up now.

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 09:43 PM)

Anyhow, Retromags has been on this server for like 2 years now. And website servers are always getting better, so I can probably move Retromags and get a faster server, more bandwidth and more storage space for the same amount of money that we are spending now

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 09:41 PM)

To each his own, I can't knock it....due to my limited editing skills

@  KiwiArcader : (24 September 2016 - 09:39 PM)

Sure. I've never denied that he doesn't put SERIOUS efforts into making his releases look good. But the cost is like a dozen releases per year. It would take me three lifetimes to scan all my mags at that rate

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 09:39 PM)

We should just combine our magazine releases to this point, onto a hard drive image and sell hard drives that are torrent prepped....and let other people be responsible for seeding the collections out there

@  KiwiArcader : (24 September 2016 - 09:37 PM)

Hehe ... you're trying to tempt me ....

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 09:37 PM)

No, but seriously....I have to give him props for the work he does restoring those pages to perfection

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 09:36 PM)

I hear if you say his name 3 times he appears

@  KiwiArcader : (24 September 2016 - 09:35 PM)

Fiber IS coming to my end of the road in March next year so I could look at running OGM off a server at home on a 100/50 or 200/100mbit fiber plan. So site wise it isn't an issue but hosting is. I won't talk about Meppi in public. LOL

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 09:35 PM)

I havent been on his site forever, I think the last time was a year or two ago and I believe he was still using FileFactory

@  Phillyman : (24 September 2016 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I think I read a post somewhere on the web that Meppi was close to throwing in the towel as well. Something about putting all his stuff over at Archive.org....but then that post disappeared a few days later....so who knows

@  KiwiArcader : (24 September 2016 - 09:32 PM)

Just a thought. I'm running on fumes most all the time. Donations don't cover much so it almost all comes out of my pocket. Then I get my hosting provider shutting access when some script kiddie tries to brute force my WP account so it might be good to revisit things.
