A number of readers asked us to bring back our
pre-website newsletter format, which was a pdf file.
It was "easier printing for we who like to flip real
pages while reading" and also "easier to keep on
file in my own computer."                                         
We're giving the pdf option a try, offering it when
we have the extra hours double-publishing requires.

For a pdf version of this issue, download it here.
(If there is no link here, please check back. We
create a pdf after releasing the e-newsletter .)

This alternate print-easy pdf format is a trial offer.
