New reader; Thanx and surgestions.

WOW!
Best computer magazin I have ever read (all catagoris)
You now have yet another reader in Sweden.

I have some wiches on articles.
I love python just as much as I love Linux.

A general article about python would be good to have
if you have not had it already. Its a great language.

The request for my side though, is an Article on Zope (or several)
Realy seams intresting.

Also, must you have only one year subscription?
£80 GBP is realy much money to pay all at once for me (and Im sure for others)
Would be great if offshore subscriptions could be on shorter periods aswell.

I realy like your way to handle the adds.
Most magazins here have a 30%+ adds. and it makes me ill.

I saw you have a odd way of counting the months aswell.. October after November? ;)
And the some indexes is not acurate.. ofset by 2 pages I think. Small but anoying error.
Same goes for the Step by step instructions to CUPS webconfig.
The texts dose not seam to match the images.

Other than that, your magazin is realy GREAT!
The whole Swedish market of magazins should be ashamed.

Keep up the good work!
And Thanx!

"October after November"
Im sorry, for someone that actuly get more sleep than 4h/48h this might not make perfect sense.
What I meant is more: November before October?
As LXF72 say November and at the same time that LXF73 will come out in Oct 18.

Oh and also for thouse that has not herd of Zope here is a URL: http://www.zope.org/

Hmm now to my right I see that "Linux Format 73, December" is current issue..
Is it some kind of rule to have a general offset by 2?
Or am I finaly goin mad... :S
I am the one you thought I was! Just not the way, you expected...

LXF produces 13 issues per year; one every 4 weeks. Giving you extra value for your subscription ;). To that you have to add Future Publishing's desire to get the magazines in the shops early so they never seem "out of date". So the January edition appears in the shops just before Christmas (alongside the January editions of most other mags), the February one 4 weeks later and so on, until by the time the December edition appears it's still only October. Then you get the Christmas edition towards the end of November and we're back on schedule for the January edition just before Christmas...

Don't worry - it's not you going mad (at least not on that evidence alone :))
Hope this helps,

Nigel.

Yes, the First Steps in LXF72 is a little wonky. It is all my fault, many apologies.

There is a version of the tutorial with the captions in the correct order at http://www.linuxformat.co.uk/mag/lxf72_cups_steps.pdf

Thanks for your comments and suggestions; delighted to have you on board!
