  1. Thanks, Mark - those conditions make sense. I infer from your response that there's no exchange occurring between my machine and your servers when exiting. I posted this topic/question because nothing has changed with my machine and the programs that are typically open when I'm working in my db, but the delay in exiting is a recent change that now occurs every time I close the program.
  2. For the past couple of weeks, when I close the application and the "updating totals" window displays, the activity bar doesn't show any activity and the program freezes for 3-4 minutes minimum. It eventually closes and saves the file. I'm wondering if the problem is an issue with my machine or if updating the totals involves some interface with the CB server, and then if the problem is at my end or the CB end. Any thoughts? r/ Mike
  3. I just picked up an issue and counted pages. Issue #8 had five pages of comics stories: one page of Tarzan, three pages of Star Wars, and one page of two comic strips sharing the page. The issue has 48 pages, so approximately 5% comics pages.
  4. I was about to update my database with some copies of Pizzazz, but stopped when I found it listed with Comic Books. Should this be listed with Magazines? r/ Mike
  5. My experience was as Tim described, and adding the missing grades (created by me) to the list also revealed my missing books. r/ Mike
  6. The facsimile reprint of the first edition has been released. I want to put my copy in my database. I suppose this would be a third printing, so would be TPB 1-3, yes? r/ Mike
  7. The database has only a copy of the concept art for this issue. I uploaded(?) a copy of the published cover, but couldn't get confirmation of receipt, so here's a copy of the cover. r/ Mike
  8. The current scan you have appeared to be only a concept piece, so I uploaded the published cover, but since I couldn't get confirmation of receipt, I've attached it here. r/ Mike
  9. If memory serves, CGC authenticates autographs (or notes they are not authenticated) on issues and notes them on the label when the book is slabbed.
  10. Issue 36 had another issue's cover associated with it. I tried to upload the correct cover, but it didn't appear to go - I'm guessing because the db already has a cover of sufficient size assigned. Here's a copy of the cover for #36.
  11. I have a variety of Gold Key issues to add to my database and am seeing that some of the titles have Gold Key as the publisher, and others have K.K. Publications, Inc. as the publisher, as well as others that have only K.K. as the publisher. I'd like to correct my database to the accurate publishing source, but I'm inclined to go with Gold Key instead of K.K. Publications, Inc.. Which one does CB consider to be the accurate reference? I know the indicia isn't always followed, which is why I'm asking. As for only K.K., that seems to be an easy decision; if it's not going to be Gold Key, it should at least be the full name of the publisher, i.e., K.K. Publications, Inc. r/ Mike
  12. I have a copy of Masked Raider #4 (Charlton) to put in my database, but not sure how to enter it. It's a giveaway variant from Schiff's Shoes back in the late 1950s. This was a brief occurrence with a number of shoe stores at the time, including Big Shoe Stores, GallenKamp's, and R&S Shoes. Any advice on how to enter it in the database? r/ Mike
  13. Like many others, I also didn't like the new requirement to click the far-left cell to select a whole line, but I have to admit that I'm getting used to selecting a specific cell in a row when it's the only cell I want to change, and I now like being able to do that. Opening a row still hangs up the program for 30-40 seconds for me (been that way since I started using 2020), so I find opening a single cell is prefereable a lot of the time. r/ Mike
  14. That's a good start, thanks. Does "Bk" apply to trade paperbacks or squarebound special issues? I know Anl is used for Annuals, not sure about the other types of comic book products available, and there are a couple of dozen types of publications in the drop down menu for binding type.
