It temporarily locked my computer up as well. I'll forward this thread to Peter.

Locked mine as well. There is a gremlin lurking in the issue! At least the electronic version.

I tried to look at the current issue today, but only got to pages 40-41. How do you receive an e-mail that the new issue is available?

emails are send to all members with email addresses announcing its availability. Do you have an email address on file with the club?

The problem appears to be the large file. This issue is at least twice the file size as a regular issue. So the process they use to send a regular issue into the temporary memory on your computer does not work with this issue.

My best guess is that the cache memory size available on your computer cannot handle that large a file. I have an older laptop(only 8 GB of Ram) and could not get past page 15-16. Even regular issues do not respond well on my computer. I have not tried on my iPad but it is older and has limited memory also.

FYI:
I've uploaded the magazine in 2 parts. If you can't open the full magazine try the 2 parts instead.

Peter I tried the 2 parts and the cars do not load OK. Got the first page to open and then it locked up. The other part was fine . Also the subject is in two threads; Club Dscussion and General discussion forums.

I had the same experience. The part 2 with the show cars would not fully load. Could see the first page then nothing.

Part 1 worked fine.

Peter,

Thanks for your efforts to address this concern.

On my older iPad that has 32 GB of ram I was able to successfully view both of the sections. I was not able to view all of the single issue of 96 pages. Things locked up at about page 40.

I am currently not where I can access my Windows laptop with Chrome as the browser. A few days ago it was not letting me view any of the choices completely.
