Hi N&V.
Looking for issues from 1990 to 2003 in CD. Are they available ?

Hi Externet, unfortunately no, we don't have any CD-ROMs of issues before 2003. There is a handful of articles that have been published on our website before 2003 but not all the content is there. Go to this link (https://www.nutsvolts.com/magazine/issues) and you can pull up the table of contents' for each issue. The articles that come up are the ones that have content.

Thank you, Mr. Lemieux.
Yes, I saw the contents of that link before and surprised that T&L publications does not have a treasured history vault with the printed complete collection of the early years :sad:
It would be interesting trying to find someone who has them, for your safekeeping and perhaps selling in electronic form, reusing some articles...
My collection from the nineties was donated to a library when I moved. Regretting not having them scanned then. I used to buy them at Halted in person.

I will give you the homework; try to find them, for the historic value of your business. :eek:

Ask at your local library if they can locate them on microfilm. Its a long shot but that's the way it was done before the internet. Someone probably did but locating the films and the person who remembers they exist might be a trick.

Externet,

Are you still looking for the old issues of Nuts & Volts?

I have 1999 to 2003 on CD, in JPEG Format.
I was going to do my whole collection{1993-2004}.
But I was missing one or two issues, or the magazines had faded, or were so badly damaged from getting damp.
That I just quit scanning them in at the 1999 issues.
Also, it was a pain, stitching together the larger pages, and cleaning up texts and images before saving them to the CD.
It would take me about a year of scanning to finish just one year.

I don’t know, I haven’t seen this. I'm more interested in films. Different genres and adventures, and action films, biographical based on real events and crime. Everything you can sit under with delicious popcorn and cola. But if you don't know which movies to watch, here is a great selection of the best movies about gambling - link
