I think we talked about this previously but can't remember the decision that was made.
If it's still the 'get something for nothing' adage, than what not make
the old VOICE's available via a .pdf online through a 'members only' section?
The reason being is I would like to have available some of the informative at my fingertips for reference without having to hang on to the old ragged copies AND not have to carry them around with me.

Hello Jim, I've put a note to the BOD on this as there could be a possibility. We do use a low resolution pdf proof reading process at present. Obviously the file size can get considerable for all that data.... what file size would you envisage being able to handle if it can be provided?

I'm on cable at home and T1 @ work so I could care less what size it is. I download hundreds of Mb every day.
At the lowest resolution our 32 page publication is something less than 3 Mb. I could easily say that in todays day and age up to 20 Mb would be acceptable.
What size is your proof copy usually?

Jim, it certainly seems that you'd not have an issue with the proposed low resolution pdf's at about 3Mb. They are still fine for viewing on screen. We're sorting where the best place to archive these will be.

Jim

We will be posting PDF versions of the Voice. 
They will be a year old versions though. 
So, we will be publishing Q1-2008 here soon, and we will then post the Q1-2007 edition in a pdf, either here on the forums, or make a spot for them on the front page.

Hope this answers your question.

Explain? Why only the year old versions?
As I alluded to in my original post, there are times when I can't find my VOICE, or I've lent it out and don't have it available. If you put it in a MEMBERS ONLY fourm you can limit access to it quite easily.

Jim, I can't explain as I was not able to attend the Dec BOD meeting where that decision was made. I have however made subsequent strong representation to the BOD to have a previous low resolution version of Voice available once a new issue has been mailed... a 3 month interval.

Regards
Peter
