*cough*interested*cough*

BTW, computer-wise, will these be readable by Macs? Or, if not, are the files at least PDFs, which could be dragged into a new folder or something? (this is what us Mac-folk did with the Dragon Archive, for instance).

I'd entertain private offers. I haven't been active on eBay in a year or so. Really busy. But I'd be open to private offers should anyone wish to make such an offer. I have the DVDs. I also have the CD version, but it's the only copy I know about and would appear to be a display copy. IIRC they are standard PDFs but I haven't looked at mine in years.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.

The .pdfs are not OCR'd (so they're just scanned images, unlike the Dragon Archive), and they're not readabe in Acrobat 6.0, you need Reader/Pro 7.0.  Otherwise, they're fine.  

Good to see you Ian, been awhile :D

Well, I didn't know that. So the Dragon Mag Archive can be coppied to Word? I really must try that. I think mine had Acrobat Reader on it, but it's probably just the PC version.

Yeah, thats one good thing about the Dragon Magazine Archive which also allows you to do searches for specific words.

Could this be the same printers that done the White Dwarf DVD?




** expired eBay auction **




The white and red stripe on the face of the CD looks a lot like the one on the back of my DVD boxes where the barcode is meant to be.

Now I know I didn't buy them from this guy, but something seems a little fishy here, and surely this can't be legal either!
