I'm shamelessly panhandling for QuarkXpress 3.x, 4.x, 5.x and Quark Passport files. I need Real World[tm], publicly available, large and small files in the widest range of content possible.
If you have files I can have, please zip them up (Winzip preferred, but I'll deal with *.sit, *.sea, *.hqx or whatever you have) and send them to me. I'll send a postcard from Vancouver if you also include your mailing address... if not, I'll... sing you a song or something.
These files will become a part of a set of internal functionality and performance benchmark test suites. An original will be kept, but files will be viewed, possibly mutilated and picked apart, up, down, charm, strange, top and bottom. They will never be shown outside of my project team.
If you know where there's a goldmine I can download from, please let me know.
I've already Googled with all the keywords that make sense. I'm getting a very strong There-Must-Be-A-Better-Way vibe.
I know that sample files come with QuarkXpress tutorial books that are available at Amazon, B&N, Chapters, etc. and I'm going to ask if I have a budget at all. In the meantime, I need free stuff.
