    2. Do you happen to know how to spell MAD (or whatever the text is on the cover next to MAD) in Chinese? If you type it I can copy it, so I can send a few emails out in Chinese? I can use a translator for most everything, but need to get the title of the issue correct. Thank you!

    1. Awesome, thank you! Now if I could find someone in Taiwan willing to buy a few things I have found and ship to me. For some money of course...
