    UK LazyTown Magazines

    I have some time off work on the horizon, would me scanning every issue of the LazyTown magazine be of interest to anyone?

    I know Parviz would be, he's been bugging me for literal years about it. I'm getting around to it... it helps that I just got a nice big scanner as well with a much larger scanning area. But I don't think I have the whole collection, so please :)

      Issue 1 was printed in March 2007 so I figured the 10 year anniversary of the magazine would be a fun time to upload them :)
      Also, so far I've found 44 issues, me and my big mouth haha, definitely a project for more than one day!

          Only 48 were ever made, so either the other 4 are on a shelf somewhere or I wasn't able to purchase them for whatever reason.

            You can ask Sarah, maybe she has the missing ones.

              OMG... That would be awesome collection. I'd appreciate if you had them uploaded.
              Also I know, you have many interesting and cool stuffs than Magazines or Books, maybe a couple of DVDs, since you have been here for 7 years.

                  Re: LazyTown Book Scans

                  Phew! issue 1 of the UK LZT magazine has been painstakingly scanned by myself, but before I update this post with the link, I'd like you to please read the following, the routine I repeated 34 times over several hours for the 34 pages of issue one:

                  1. Scan a page
                  2. Quality control
                  3. If good, scan next page, if bad, repeat steps 1 and 2
                  4. Locate online software and rotate the 17 pages that ended up upside down
                  5. Add 34 images to a folder and zip.
                  6. Log into Mediafire
                  7. Upload to Mediafire
                  8. Mediafire "verifies" the folder
                  9. Mediafire uploads the folder
                  10. Copy and paste link to forum.

                  Would YOU do all that for free?
                  I am by no means a tech expert, and hey, if you have any speedier upload tips do let me know, but perhaps now you'll understand, although we might not always say it, how frustrating it is to be asked, sometimes not even politely "Can I have this?" and "Where's this?" when our collective default setting is to always do things to the best of our ability.
                  Oh, and all websites have running costs, so do feel free to donate to this forum's upkeep if you've enjoyed any of this free content
                  It's 2:43am, I'm going to bed so I have the energy to do all this free work again tomorrow, lol.

                          Thank you Guys, very much appreciated.

                          FYI, scanner plate = 22.02cm
                          magazine = 23cm

                          Something's. Gotta. Give.
