You can also download them from his site.
There are 2 pdfs with the collection split in 2 parts in ocr.
Did that a couple of years ago to use them as search engine.

Pixel was the biggest and best magazine of its era in Greece, real quality stuff. Started off as a listings magazine but very quickly became a full-fledged magazine; though years later they also published a sister, small-format listings magazine that lasted only a few issues.

Got most of the issues in my collection, a real treasure...

Yeah, I know the site and am a member there, but where are the two files you mentioned? I only see the individual issues?

Dunno, I gave them and told me that he uploaded them 3-4 years ago.

It's the "index" version.
2 big pdfs for search.
Some are missing, I made this from his site with what he had.

Almost 19000 pages. I made the mistake of opening the files and now my meal is getting cold.

You need a beefy machine to do that.
On my 1st gen i7 is almost OK.
On a 7th goes smooth.

To get a Pixel, one must spend a lot of Bytes.
I had to say it. ;)
