Hi Paul,

I agree: getting rid of the .pdf version was a big backwards step; and I almost did the same as you. I like reading S&T though: I think it is the better of the big two astronomy magazines; so I kept my subscription going.

I can still download so I don't have to be on-line to read the magazine, but it has to be through the Zinio interface... At least that doesn't cost any extra.

I am not sure that technology is always going in the right direction: a lot of this sort of on-line stuff is all about control...
