    Watch out for page numbers on the registration card bits.

    Realistically I'm not going to be able to keep on top of this while Retro CDN is playing games with uploads. Also reviews.

    I think we have to reupload a few pdfs (1, 2, 3, 4)...

    Not a problem, right?

    I guess not... it happens... and you fixed them, so... thank you very much for your service, Sir Gestalt ;) ...

    edit: I'm downloading issue #11 of ''Arcadia'' magazine... it's 844 MB large... it may take a while to show up on Retro CDN, depending on our server's "mood"...

    Sega trade ads and articles from the 80s. Requires account for digital lending which means no downloads, so screen grabs on hires screen preferable. Or maybe there's a simpler way that I'm not aware of.

    Examples (ads seem to be linked to CES appearances) ... note unreleased games announced at 1983 Winter CES;

    I've got 10 more to upload but the server takes a nap every 5 minutes or so. Converted the TIFFs to JPGs (which halved the file size) and changed the dpi to 150 (which again halved the file size) - the file size is now around 250 MB.

    Top Kids (Argentina) ... all watermarked (a nasty watermark on each page)... which is sad because we don't have many Argentinian magazines... what a waste...
