Latest Aug 18 S&T -electronic version

I have a full collection of S&T going back to 1941....
But it seems they have changed their electronic version provider to VINIO...
never heard of them...
You have to register etc etc. and trying to read the magazine on a laptop is a PITA. What between that and the useless american Ad's for hunting knives etc.
They're loosing me......

Ken,


I have had no issue with actually accessing the magazine online but I have contacted them to find out how to download a pdf version. As you say it is a PITA to use the slow online version that is only available when you are online.


If enough people are asking for this, maybe something will come of it.


And I agree, they are losing me if this is not resolved.



Regards

Unfortunately Sky & Telescope got back to me today, but they don't appreciate what a PITA this is. In fact I don't think they really care.

The response from Sky & Telescope was a generic response so perhaps they have had a number of people complaining. They appreciated my support but really that wasn't what I was giving.
