  • It's August and it's the first one of 2007?
    Haha, no wonder I wasn't getting any. :D

  • ...the newsletter

    Well, i don't want to offend anyone but honestly it looked a little bit like spam to me with all the not so well subdivided texts passages and the almost countless links. Wouldn't it be better placing most of this behind the links and making it more readable?

    Or even better, can we get a real newsletter in form of a pdf file which looks like a newspaper, Zak like?

    By the way, i would like to see the faces without the hands in between. :O)

    I think the newsletter will be a bit more interesting when it has some content in we don't know about/haven't read before.

  • Maybe i'm a bit picky about this but this is something i don't enjoy reading the way it's looking like. It reminds me more of those "Dear Mr. Blabla, I do life here in Botswana. I'm the third son of King Ulala and maybe you can help me out with my problem..." mails.

    Well, there is going to be a 'Dear Max' section... :D

  • We used to have a nicer looking newsletter, but Outlook 2007 switched to the Word rendering engine instead of IE, which previous versions used, so we had to abandon pretty much all nice layout in favor of bare bones HTML.

  • What's speaking against a pdf?

  • I dont think people would be very excited if we emailed them a PDF attachment once a month. I would probably phone them up and tell them to go out of business, actually.

    Plus not everyone may have Acrobat Reader.
    And I agree, it is nice to not have to open anything (except the e-mail, actually) and just read the newsletter straight away.

  • Really? Well, on a mac it's such a no brainer and i don't know a single person without a pdf reader installed but maybe you're right. Flash is common too, linking to a flashpage with a newspaper then?
