hzn: Advertising - announced on csa.announce, on the news groups, and mentioned - I'm sure - on that little read web area known as drobe! ;-) Costs - I could reduce the price - to less than it costs to produce? For a magazine like Qercus colour is necessary - just look at Acorn User when they reduced their colour pages to adverts only to see what I mean. It is expensive in Europe but the difference is in the postage costs. We did try to find a cheaper alternative but those deliveries were subject to very late arrival and frequent loss. The best way of reducing costs would be for everyone to get someone else to also subscribe to Qercus: printing costs for double the print run would be very little more - but that's the price of a niche market. Bias - are you saying that the Iyonix / RO5 variants were as substantial newswise for non-Iyonix users as the release of the first PRMs since RO3 or the release of RO6 - noting that Iyonix users had already been informed of the upgrades? When ROOL made the announcements about the shared access release we gave them an in-depth welcome.
