Now THAT is truly a good looking X-Boat on the cover.

MONGOOSE! MONGOOSE! LOOK! LOOK!

THAT'S HOW YOU SHOW TRAVELLER SHIPS (not what you've been giving us).

Look at how cool that ship is. It brings the vessel to life. Look at the light hit off it...the exterior hatch...the portholes that are darkened to the star's light.


THAT'S WHAT TRAVELLER SHOULD LOOK LIKE!

Not Ninja Vargrs and Cyberpunk Darrians. (Good grief, Charlie Brown.)



Bravo, Jeff. Bravo.

Not me bravo; Ndege Diamond bravo. And the previous issue, Andrew Boulton bravo. They're the artists; I'm just Your Humble Editor.

Well, It took two tries with this snail speed internet, but I got it downloaded. Now to ruin Christmas by spending all my time with my goodies.

This may be the best Christmas present of all!

Thanks Jeff and Merry Christmas too you.

Found time to read half of it.

Thanks Jeff for putting your time into this. It's much appreciated.

To answer your question at the end, if it take too long to do both formats then drop one and just do one.

I'm European so I'd prefer the A4 format, however having said that I'm used to having Adobe print US format stuff on A4 paper, so it really doesn't matter.

If it helps in putting out Freelance Magazine once a month, then drop one of the formats.

Regards,

Ewan

At the moment, it's not an issue in terms of production time; I was actually looking at the possible future question of "Are downloads of both formats at levels that show it to be worth the server space?". For now, I intend to continue to support both formats - and if I can ever afford a good symmetric high b/w connection at home, it may never become an issue, since I won't then be paying for hosting; I'll be hosting at home then.
