    Infinite complexity according to simple rules.

    Thanks, Herr Fuchs. I'm waiting until the weekend, when I can spare some time to have a good look at what to do and want to do. Great to have it back, by the way.
    You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.

      I've been tidying up the New Worlds album today, trying to make it look better organised. I've uploaded scans of the Contents pages for NW 148 & 151 and moved all the 'merged' covers (where the front & back cover scans where composited) into a separate sub-album.

      What I've tried to do on each page is have Front Cover - Contents - Back Cover on each row, so fitting 3 issues per page. That's not been possible for the magazine versions of NW since on the whole the back covers haven't been scanned (or haven't been worth scanning I suspect).

      For the 'Quarterly' paperbacks, I've moved the US editions into a sub-album within the main NWQ album, primarily as they're an adjunct to the main UK series rather than part of it proper imo.

      I've also created a new NW album for the pre-Moorcock years issues for Carnell-edited issues featuring work by Mike.

      Next thing I'm going to do is create a sf Impulse album for the Ice Schooner serialization.

        David, it's the latter ... I didn't scan the back of the large format issues where it was simply a full page advert.

        I've also been playing around with the New Worlds album, trying to change the thumbnail aspect ratios, but without success. Eventually I found a thread in the user forum for the Gallery software that suggested the following solution if all thumbnails are square: "Deactivate the Square Thumbnails Module and then re-build the thumbnails." Has anyone tried this?

        Before the previous site went down, I'd scanned (and in some cases uploaded) further NW stuff including editorials and lead-ins, plus Mike's articles "Barbarella and the Anxious Frenchman" and "Into the Media Web". This was meant for the "New Worlds portfolio" album that never made it before the hackers struck. Fortunately, I've still got the scans on my hard disk; does anyone out there want this stuff uploaded? If so, any ideas where we put them?

          Just have and think I've worked it out. So far I've re-done the thumbs for the Magazines and Novels and Anthologies albums. I've made the 'long edge' 200 pixels rather than 150, which gives a thumb more like what we had on the old site.

          Just one thing, when I load a re-sized page of thumbs for the first time it initially displays a square thumb of 200x200, but by pressing F5 to reload the page it re-displays them properly as a oblong thumb. I'd like to know whether this happens to anyone else.

          Yes please. We have an album for Mike's Interviews, perhaps we could expand it to include articles as well? We can link from the NW issue pages I think.

            David or Herr Fuchs, is it possible to upload images larger than 2Mb? It says to ask the administrator to allow bigger images. I have some that are slightly larger than that to go in the newly created 'Adventures of Jerry Cornelius' album.

              I'll have to look into that and get back to you - unless Berry knows how already.

                  Thanks, David. I don't have access to the Interviews album, so I've uploaded the articles, lead-ins, etc. to three new sub-albums within the New Worlds album. You can then move the sub-albums wherever you think they best fit.

                  I should add that the lead-ins were uncredited, and I believe that the majority were not actually written by MM. However, I've not uploaded articles that are uncredited.

                    Having looked into the matter I think Berry is going to have to do the work as the limit appears to be set on the webserver rather than being a variable within the software. Sorry.

                      Many thanks yourself, Mike. For the time being I've left the sub-albums where you made them, but added links to the Lead-ins for each issue on the 'Contents' thumbnails.

                        Not to worry, David. I reduced the image quality of the 3 images by ten points which took them below the 2Mb limit. It may be an idea to have Herr Fuchs look into this though. A full colour scan of a hardback may be bigger than this limit allows for upload.
