i'm new and i have a question
« on: 16 Jul 2021, 19:24 »

hi, i'm przxqgl, which is pronounced exactly like it's spelled.

up until recently, i had electronic copies of all 6 of jeph's QC books, but i fell victim to a bug that they've known about since 2018, but never told anyone, where anyone with the IP address for the device can login as admin and delete all the data.

among the data that was deleted ( :x) were all 6 of jeph's books...

is there any way, short of re-purchasing them, that i can get new copies?

thanks for reading this!

My only concern is the forum itself.

I was not even aware of the existence of download versions of the books... Anyway, they are sold and supplied by Topatoco, so your best bet is to contact them through their help page.

i figured, fuck it, and bought physical copies of the books, so that this won't happen again.

i still want electronic copies, though. i'll contact topatoco.

than queue. :wink:

just to let you know...

i wrote to topatoco with my issue, and "Lucid John" from their helpdesk provided me with a download link for all 6 books. :-o

Thank you for the reminder - I'm late getting my systems backed up for last quarters data.  As soon as I get my work laptop taken care of, I'll have to do my own machines.

Oh, and welcome!

Welcome, and if I remember the Oz books right, your name is actually quite tricky to pronounce correctly. Get it even slightly wrong and it doesn't work.

that's "pyrzxqgyl"... "przxqgl" is my approximation of how i think it may be pronounced... but it still doesn't work.

a friend of mine incorrectly believes it's "per-zux-qua-gul", but she's wrong.

i think it's more along the lines of "per-zix-quiggle", but that's not exactly right, either. 8-)
