We're all a bit flat out with other things at the moment so I can't say how soon the next update will be.

However, there should be more than enough there to keep everyone occupied for some time (there are currently about 28500 scanned pages online)

Cheers Galaxy, I understand you guys are well & truly up to your necks and appreciate the work you're doing so far.

By the way, I've just downloaded (thru Emule) an archive that contains a shed load of cover disks, I'll try and get them listed for you so's that if there's any missing I'll upload them to the zone or get them to whoever is dealing with them for the magazine rack. The archive itself is 700mb, a wee bit to large for the zone methinks!

Just want to point out that AMR is updated most days of the week, with reviews, scans and other info. (e.g. coverdisk contents etc.) being added to the database. Updates are mostly announced, though, when something quite substantial is added to AMR (e.g. scans of whole issues, the addition of a new magazine with cover scans/review scans/review info., scans of special articles etc.).

As Galaxy said, however, we're all pretty flat-out atm with life and other Ami projects, so major updates might not be as frequent as they have been since AMR was launched. That doesn't mean that people like yourself can't contribute in the meantime, whether it be magazine scans, indexing reviews, providing coverdisks etc.

No probs. I've just grabbed a txt file of the contents and uploaded it. If there's any there you think are missing (the coverdisks) let me know and I'll upload 'em to the zone. (One thing, the archive does say that it's TOSEC, so you may well indeed have them. No harm in trying tho!)
