An interesting news item

Copied from drplokta

Allegedly, the Royal Mail has suspended a postman for telling people living on his round how to opt out of the "Door to Door" service that delivers unaddressed advertising material with your post. Wouldn't it be a shame if the publicity around this inspired a few million people to email with their postal addresses and ask for the form to opt out?

Wouldn't it just...

Later: Received the form by email - they make it clear that you really don't get much of a reduction in post, and others have pointed out that this is generally ignored by postmen. But I'll give it a try anyway.

FF PDF - A modest successs?

Apparently there have already been more than fifty downloads of the FF PDF from e23, and I've been asked to PLEASE not make any more changes unless it's absolutely essential in case all of them download it again. I've also had more registrations than usual in the last few days; not a huge increase, but enough to convince me that doing this was worth while, and that putting more freebies on line occasionally, over and above the normal game releases, will also be a good idea if I can do it without overextending myself.

I'm vaguely thinking of an "advertising supplement" next, say 32 pages of adverts from Pearson's Magazine, Gamage's catalogue, etc., if I can find enough fun ones. Does this sound interesting?

I'm also going to look at freebies for Diana and Flatland; I'm not sure what they'll be, but I'm sure I can come up with something.
