Kind of ironic... that would barely fit on the cube's original MO drive.

It leaves you with about 39.5mb left. You can do plenty with that. Wink

I can put it in a torrent and seed it with the other next files I currently do, all I need is the file.

No, I mean I am going to mirror it for you. I just wanted to know if that was okay. I am hosting it from my own place.

Okay everyone, I have temporary access to a very powerful computer (3GHZ CPU, 6GB RAM, 700GB HD, etc.) and had a chance to convert to jpg. It reduced the size from about 200mb to about 60mb. I'm posting links to the original, and my version. I noticed that the original seems to be flipped upside down. Sorry, I can't change that one but the jpg isn't, so I would recommend that one. It's smaller anyway. ;D

Here is the full uncompressed TIFF:

And here is the jpg file, neatly packed into a ~60mb bow:

Don't worry, mikeboss, I'm hosting it in my DropBox, so it won't affect your internet. Gotta love DropBox. lol.

Hope that helps,

Thanks, come again!

-Cody

Either the TIFF version is in super high demand right now, or the link has died.

I have the original and the jpg converted version provided by bronner now. I am going to clean up the tif version a bit to remove some of the scanning artefacts, flip it the right way up, and convert it to jpg and pdf. I can then post them in a torrent, if others are still interested in this option.

And thanks again to mikeboss for getting it scanned.

I enhanced the poster scan from mikeboss a bit (hopefully):
    removed the green, red and blue vertical scan lines
    removed some hairs and blotches
    cut it down to the original format (no borders)
    enhanced the logo and text at the bottom


You can download it from my Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/h97gqi3jqlwnfpv/cubeposter%20enhanced.tif.zip?dl=0
