I am truly impressed

The best part about it Steve, is that we are still getting credit for it :jester:

Like I've said before, I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you guys and I'm still only doing what I did before (the designy bit). If you have any small video content you wanna bung my way to try out in the mag for the upcoming drag challenge gubbins, that would be super-awesome (that goes for anyone by the way).

SeanDezart 16-09-2008 08:55 AM

Do you want some hill-climb video ?

For the LM Classic article I can send you some video footage - you'll have to crop anything I send of course or it'll be too big !

JakTheRuby 16-09-2008 08:57 AM

Cool! That would be awesome. Just something to have a play with would be great.

I got an R33 ( the one that was with me at Zedfest - despite the fact that it has not appeared in ANY photos yet posted) :p going down the Pod at PTM show earlier in the year
(That was why we disappeared early from Z008)

Saz 16-09-2008 11:49 PM

how many cars have you got?

I thought you came to Zedfest in the Bluebird?

Nidge74 16-09-2008 11:54 PM

The bluebird was mine, as the Zed was off the road due to not being able to put fuel in it.

The R33 belonged to another member, (he would have been the handsome bloke) that owns a Sunny ZX with a S13 DET engine in, but I think he buggered the turbo, hence the R33

But hey, if Raynor can turn up in a Cherry to every event, My mates can bring whatever they want.

Although Raynor's CT is the best in the whole wide world. :)

If you enjoyed the first ever zclub online magazine, then you're in for a treat! Coming to a computer monitor near you soon... The second ever zclub online magazine. Brilliant! It'll be crammed chock full of things n stuff about the lineage we love to love told by the people Sean likes to upset (only kidding). Coming in the next issue...

How to spank mother nature on the hillocks, sekz in pub carparks, heroes in very tight lycra(TM) and simply too much more very awesome zedness to even mention. I shouldn't have even said this much, don't tell anyone. No, no, no, someones at the door...

zpuppy 28-10-2008 06:45 PM

I is lookin forward to it SuperJakko ! ( with bated breath non the less) :D

SeanDezart 28-10-2008 07:42 PM

Be quick & have it then, then hopfully we can have peace at long last!

JakTheRuby 24-11-2008 08:05 PM

Right then folks. I've been behind a bit with this next issue so I apologise for that but have no fear because we're now back very much on it and it'll be even better than the last (or at least AS good, or maybe not... Who knows?) I've upgraded my home computer and it is now a proper 560Z (Twin 2.8) bad invincible muthaplucka and that allows me to run the latest software at real speed and because I have the very, very latest software, as I design the layout, I can quite literally save it straight into the page flip format from the first stage.

(ENTERING GEEK MODE... SWITCH OFF IF YOU LIKE FOR A BIT) For the first issue, and largely for the whole development stage, I had to design it the same way as I did when we printed the magazine. Then, once that stage was done each page had to be turned into two different sized images (the zoomed out and in versions) which were bitmapped images, just like the photos you guys post up. The inherent problem with this was that unless you had a big monitor running at a low(ish) resolution, it could get tricky to read. To be honest, I knew that it was gonna be a problem but thought it was well worth it for those who'd persevere and be prepared to just go the extra mile for the experience. Now, this will not be a problem because I can publish the article in it's proper format (postscript) in both sizes. This'll mean that for the exceptionally keen of eye, you may even be able to read the damned thing in zoomed out mode. This is because the pages won't be made up of pixels any more (dots per inch). The text will be postscript (this is how your printer can print text of any size without it looking all blocky). It also means the file sizes will be smaller (faster loading). (EXITING GEEK MODE... RE-BOOT BORED SELVES).

The upshot is, the whole product will be much more slick and that's the bottom line ('cause SuperjakkoTM said so). Once this issue is ready to go, I'll give the same treatment to the first ever online magazine ever and to the previous issues which are ready and waiting (but have nowhere to go). Shiny happy times peeps!

The next project once this magazine is out of the way is the video content for the site. I've received a wicked DVD from the one and only, truly original, irrepressible 'DJ' of some SuperbadassTM footage from ZEDFEST this year. Ideally, I want our very own media player on the site, so that when you guys upload footage, it'll be in a ZBrowserTM format for all the bad invincible paid up members to watch to their hearts content. Once I have a working prototype, I'll get Leicester's finest cowboy to help me get it 'just right' and then we're there. Fully online streaming and downloadable video content. HELL YEAH!

Oh and I've already finished the Christmas pressie. It's done and dusted and will be live on the day, so if you can tug yourselves away from 'er majesty's speech (for those of us in the UK) or whatever you're up to, be it taking it easy three days into Hanukkah, 17 days after Eid ul-Adha and just 4 days from the Newyear, three days after the birthday of Gobind Singh, at the end of Pancha Ganapati, whatever gives you strength or makes you the awesome zedder or zedfan that you are, it'll be here and totally live that day. What's your favourite flavour?

SUPREME Jakko.
I sincerely look forwardz to the 2nd Z Club Online Magazine. After the sensational debut of the 1st one,
only higher powa's above can imagine the contents &
layout of this next one.
Above all son. yer doin' a very fine job! workin' yer butt'z off...(I do know what itz like):) & demand that you get an M.B.E instead of Jonathan Ross. You make a
difference & that'z why I love you....you ...you wonderfully talented superbloke.
As for the ZEDFEST CLIP it'll have to suffice as
there is NO other zvd from me this year.
I burnt my self out & at ZEDFEST I was on my last leg'z, but I'm pulling my self together now thanks to my
friends. You're One of them! :bow: DJZ 60.:cheers:
