Hi,


I have been a Backpacker Mag lurjker for many many years, primarily picking up issues here and there off of the news stand.  I recently pulled the trigger on a sub.  Here is my question.  I sub'd through the webiste, completed my order, and was taken to a page that had links to the 3 free downloadable books.  The download server was being very slow and timed out.  I closed the window, but when I went to try and go back to BackPacker.com I can't find where to download the 3 free online books.  How, or where, can I get a hold of these?  And how, now that I sub, can I get rid of the sub add pop-ups on Backpacker.com?  Thanks in advance all!!!  Nice to meet everyone!

Sorry. No idea of what you're talking about.

Yea, my initial post probably was not as clear as it should have been, I was late for work.  When you subscribe to BP magazine via their website as an incentive you recieve the ability to download 3 free little booklets.  After sub'ing it take you to the link of said booklets.  Their download server was extremely slow and eventually timed out.  I was just curious where I could go to download them.  Overall it's not really important as the info is really all over the world in books/media/web for decades and decades.

First question I don't know, perhaps contact the magazine directly.

Getting rid of pop-ups -- good luck. That question has been raised before, I have tried unsuccessfully to stop the pop-ups but cannot effectively. I tried blocking the specific pop-up, but it seems that the image on screen is composed of more than one pop-up, so you still end up with some parts showing, and if you zap them all then other things start disappearing like page headers and content links that were not part of the pop-up. So I've just learned to live with the pop-ups. I agree with you that subscribers ought to be able to easily avoid the intrusive solicitations to subscribe...
