The combined properties of the new company offer advertisers access to the highest concentrations of 18-24 and 18-34 year-old males online(1), providing a solution to reaching these key demographic constituencies whose use of television has declined sharply in recent years.

Of course, you could look at it this way. The only way GameSpy and IGN can compete with TRC and TRF is to merge..... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Now who can we merge with to strenghten our position...

I've never had any problems with it. I rather like the queue system...would you ever do that with TRC http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif

It exaggerates the wait time. If you want the file bad enough you'll wait ;)

Agreed in principle. But you should read some of the emails I receive from Tomb Raider fans caught in my queuing system. They'd make you blush!

Or you could just implement the plus system. BTW how is that going?

Also what's with the 105MB videos?

Plus is going as planned. We've applied for an online merchant account to process credit cards online, and that hasn't been approved yet. The only other alternative is World-Pay or Pay-Pal but merchant facilities are our preferred format.

The larger movies will be moved to Plus once the site is operational. By sticking them online now, ppl will be able to judge for themselves the outstanding quality of media Plus will afford them.

NO. WMV and WMA are harder formats to rip off (and please, don't post resources here, I'm aware how easy they are to convert ;) ) - we've enough trouble with other webmasters ripping TRC off without having someone come along and steal all the exclusive movies and post online elsewhere.

That would kinda defeat the whole object of Plus.

Talking about Plus... When are you gonna set it up running? I think it would help.

Yes. M$ formats are very hard to rip...(no I haven't tried it with any of your files) but I was just asking ;)

BTW there were some of your vogue pics floating around on another forum.
