I have checked a few zines on my smartphone and set up works excellent. Only the "x" button which is to the right of "right" arrow (appears at the bottom when scrolled deep down enough) is dangerously close to the mentioned right arrow. But then again there are cursors at whole bottom part (sorry for lack of better words), so the right arrow won't be used much.

Boštjan, you should definitely go for the Peardrop.

If I could find sb reliable with scanner I would add NO NAME 3 and 4, but dunno if you are interested.
I am ... the One you warned me of

I've been thinking the exact same thing about that "X"-button, plus it's entirely useless since you can close the page just by clicking the image. Gonna fix this and a few other details (I don't like how the images in the popup pages turn blue when you touch them for instance...)

NN #3 + #4 could definitely be of interest, unless they're like 75% Death Metal ...which often was the case w/ early 90's zines. In that case you could still do it for The Corroseum's co-conspirator in zine-archiving, Fanzines Del Mundo. You'll find plenty of other scans of mine there, which I didn't feel would fit The Corroseum, but I still thought worthy of preserving..

Marco/nonseinormale sent me some really great looking olde Italian zines, so of course I had to do another fanzine update.
Next project is finding the best OCR/picture-translator app/website/plugin/service out there, to make all those foreign zines share their secrets. Anyone has any tips/ideas?

Thanx for letting me know - FIXED :)

@Marco: Cheers for the offer. I will keep experimenting with some translation apps for the moment - I don't want to keep you away from scanning more zines, ha ha..

I also found the same problem with:
http://thecorroseum.org/fanzines/godzilla-02.php
http://thecorroseum.org/fanzines/metal_meltdown-04.php
http://thecorroseum.org/fanzines/metal_meltdown-01.php
Thanx again! ...and FIXED again.
I wish I had the time for more proper link-testing like this, but unfortunately I don't... which is why I appreciate the help a lot.
