    We once had a guitar knower check out the official Merveilles band score, and I think the general impression was that it wasn't particularly great, and definitely not what the actual band members played. I assume the unofficial ones are also unimpressive.

    From the "Missed Connections" department: some "error" era Hirasawa flyers ended at 8750Y

    I just couldn't justify that for what you get. I mean, it is only a handful of flyers.

    We don't really have to do that anymore since switching forum software. phpBB was much more temperamental when it came to long threads.

    Heads up for all eurolandicans: Yahoo Japan is going to be "ceasing operations" in Europe and the UK on April 6 due to the GDPR.

    https://www.itmedia.co.jp/news/articles/2202/01/news107.html

    According to the latter article, Yahoo Auctions is one of the sites that will "become inaccessible" (接続できなくなる) We'll see just what that means.

    I block a lot of VPN IP ranges that are used by spammers, so if anyone does use a VPN they can email me if they find themselves mysteriously blocked.

    In addition, the new software also tabulates the pages differently, a lot of the threads which were previously 100 pages dropped to about 75 pages!

    Personally, I preferred archiving them at 100 pages, it made the threads a lot easier to print, bind and display on a bookshelf.

    To answer your hint, most of my tapes (including this one) are currently located in the house of my friend that rips all of my tapes! His ripping is top tier and superb, with expensive hardware and software. But since there's a ton of tapes there, it might take a little longer! Also, soon I will invest in a great scanner, the perfection one, to scan the photo's and covers I purchased that you want scans of.
