I could. But I've paid for a paper version... :roll:


Of course, but just in case you would not get a copy of LXF 155.
I do also agree that reading a magazine from screen is not 'real'.

If I understand lmpoleij correctly, it takes 2 weeks for linuxformat to travel from somewhere in Engeland to the Netherlands!
So I started thinking, how long it would take someone to walk that distance? I could ask a colleague who is planning to walk to Santiago de Compostela (for the second time!), she has obvious experience with long distance walking!

You forget you have to swim across the Channel!

I understand from correspondence in LXF that it takes >1 month to reach Australia. I never understood this.

And here too... I still find it ridiculous that mail from the UK needs 10-14 days just to get to the other side of the pond. As a matter of fact, most orders I placed at various UK outlets arrived within a working week, regularly just 3 days.... :roll: Future should really reconsider their distribution chain, especially to overseas subscribers....

(FYI: some time ago I ordered stuff from an Aussie manufacturer. On completion, that also arrived within a working week. If a 'one-man-band' Down-Under can, why not a large UK publisher... :? )

Jup, got 155 also twice. Actually, having bought a replacement copy as a precaution, I now have 3 LXF 155 issues..... :roll:

A good way of bolstering the circulation figures? ;)

Yes, be it a bit flattered ;)

Anyway, I'll ask Katy what she wants me to do with the replacement she'd send. It's unopened, so easy to return to LXF HQ :)

Don't worry about re-turning the replacement issue perhaps pass on to a friend or colleague who may be interested.

Glad these are now arriving but if you still haven't received by end of the week let me know and I'll speak to customer services.

Thanks,
Katy

Today I also received a second copy of issue 155. It seems this is the replacement copy Katy sent, and the one I received last Friday was the original one, because this one has an accompanying letter from customer service.
I do hope issue 156 doesn't have the same delivery problems...

Well, issue 156 arrived today!
I have now received three issues (2x155 and 156) in 11 days, must be a record :lol:
Seems everything is back to normal, and issue 155 was just a hickup
