Complete set of Back issues & discs

Postby vcoen » Mon Jul 02, 2012 2:11 pm

I have for sale the complete set from issue 001 to 153.

This is due to downsizing my home in the next year or so.
Currently I have an ad? on Ebay as
item: 330755477861
titled: Linux Format Magazine - Issues 001 thru 153 - May 2000 thru Jan 2012 + CD/DVDs
starting at £0.49 per issue (for the entire set with discs).

I had to stop subscribing as my eye sight is going blurred and I can not read the small type so up to then I got around it by downloading the .PDF files and reading them, making the tex as large as needed and print out any pages I needed into larger type.

The mags. Digital service does not allow that and worse the subs are via an American company that does not support off-line reading and worse still needs software that does not work with: yep, you guessed it Linux.
What bright spark from the publishers office thought that one up?


Anyone interested please let me know. I will consider splitting them if I can sell off most of them.

You can email me at vbcoen at gmail.com

Apologies in advance for any typos here can't see too clearly.

Hi, vcoen:

Sorry to hear about your eye trouble!

I would like to buy your entire collection, disks and all. Could you quote me a price for them, including the cost to ship them to me in San Diego, California, USA?

Thank you.

P.S. If you've already sold some of them, please quote me a price for the rest and tell me which ones have been sold. Thanks again!
Bonum ago, quia bonum.

Hi;

Thank you, ok, well not cheap the only way I can think of doing it is via sea mail and yes I still have them all.

Suggest you contact me via email at vbcoen @ gmail.com to discuss it.

If you have any contacts regarding bulk shipping let me know.

As a guide we are talking around 2-3 boxes holding say 51 mags each + disks and as a rough guide each mag weighs 0.280 kg and the old one's its 0.290 kg so we are talking of a total weight (split across 3 (or more boxes) of 43 Kg + the disks, say another 10 but do you need the very old one's?
