Another factor of note is that it's cheaper to provide bandwidth for a site that isn't getting as much traffic, currently, so Dimensions might feasibly squeeze through for a relative song, due to its popularity decline.I think the history of hits and links to forum posts must help their on-line metrics in some way, even if the boards are not nearly as active as they were back in the day when they were pretty much THE online site for fat admiration.
Yep, the owner of Dimensions Magazine also owned Pen Computing magazine (I think it focused on PDAs, back before our phones got 'smart'), and he didn't register a domain for Dimensions for along time, just making use of the one he needed for his money making business.Remember when the web address was pencomputing.com (or something very similar to that)?
Interesting! I always wonderd how that address came about. Thx.Yep, the owner of Dimensions Magazine also owned Pen Computing magazine (I think it focused on PDAs, back before our phones got 'smart'), and he didn't register a domain for Dimensions for along time, just making use of the one he needed for his money making business.
Does anyone know if there are copyright issues? If I wanted to get them and put them online, probably just here at Dims. Having never seen any of them in actual print or just paper. I would be interested in attempting to preserve them, assuming they are not insanely large.I have all the issues including the first ten that were just in paper if anybody wants them. I'm 66 and read them all years ago. No charge but I'm not paying for shipping.
I can see how a business person might decide it was unprofitable to continue, and based purely on economic factors, abandon the attempt, but as for relaxing and living, that I don't understand. It seems like the actions don't match up with relaxation, or relief of any kind.@ravfa things change as technology changes. I remember my subscription to BBW magazine which was another pencomputing publication. I still think Im owed about 7 months on my last subscription! Lol
Being part of the FA/ bbw world as a business person cant be easy. I can see how after that many years, you just might want to relax and life.
