Is it me?
« on: January 25, 2016, 03:29:12 PM »
Is it me or is the Model-Engineers-Workshop mag. online viewer c**p?

You have to use the mouse to flip the magnified pages, half the time they stay pixelated.

Are these pages just scanned?

Subscribed to an US Brewing mag and got the pdf download the next day and the physical mag 120 pages 4 days later all for $30?

I thought so when you could read the online version for free !
so I only subscribe to the printed copy

I put it down to the third party providers saving money by limiting the bandwidth required , hence the low resolution reader

with the previous reader the online magazine was produced from the same PFD file sent to the printer
If I remember correctly about 5 online magazines showed all the setup and greyscale  markings used by the printers

PDF copies of magazines like nuts and volts or radio bygones that I've downloaded are readable
