I've been impressed with the Kindle and what I can do with it. Hell, I even posted to my blog from my Kindle.

Oh well. At least creating such a document on one's own isn't all that difficult (though the work of an afternoon or so).

I've finished creating the file, and I am very happy with it - I can take the entire collection of "Suppressed Transmissions" articles (which now number 300 or so) with me wherever I go, and I can add notes whenever I get some new ideas for my campaign setting - which happens once or twice per essay. The internal hyperlinks referring to earlier articles seem to function as well.

(And no, you won't get a copy of this file unless you can prove that you are a SJG staffer or Kenneth Hite himself. If you want such a file, create it yourself.)

I left them as HTML, since that's the input file for the converter. I spliced all articles into a single HTML file, however - and added anchors to all headlines so that I could add internal links.

So... did SJGames ever publish this?

Because the Pyramid archives, while awesome, don't really make in convenient to read through the Suppressed Transmissions and I would absolutely pay for it. Sounds like Jürgen already did the work...

Emphatic ditto.

If I'm not mistaken, Jürgen died about 18 months or two years ago ... so if SJG doesn't have it, it may be hard to get now.

[added edit: Ignore me, thinking of the wrong person too soon after waking up. Jürgen is alive]

I'm very sorry to hear that.

He was a fine gentleman and far too young to die. My sympathies to his friends and family.

You are mistaken. Another frequent European poster died a while back, but Jürgen is alive and well at least as of this morning, unless the dead have risen from their graves and started posting on Google+.
