THE NEW WEBSITE IS HERE!!! (FINALLY!!!)
February 25, 2009
It’s loading as I type this, so if you are sending us an email right now it may get rejected. We are redirecting traffic from the old servers to the new servers.
This has been an ongoing project for almost three years. Finally, subscribers will be able to read articles online! Obviously, we’re a little bit excited about it—and a bit tired from the late hours we’ve been putting in to get to this milestone. (I think it has been four weeks since I've taken a day off.)
Some of the pages have not yet been converted to the new site, but we wanted to go ahead and launch it at this stage so you can begin to enjoy the benefits.
There are two options for reading articles online.
Here’s how it works…
If you had a subscription as of February 25, 2009, you can create an account using your existing account number. Your account number is printed on your mailing label just above your name.
If you are a new subscriber, and you choose either the print/online combination or the online only option when you order your subscription, you will receive an email with your activation information.
Once you have activated your account, you can click on the Table of Contents for an issue and read any article you wish. December 2008, January 2009 and February 2009 issues have been loaded so far. The March 2009 will be added around midnight on February 26th.
If you are reading an article you particularly like, you can click on the author’s name to view other articles by that author.
After we fix up the remaining web pages that still need a little work, we will continue to load back issues starting from the most current ones and working our way back through the years as time permits. Our goal is to make every issue available online at the rate of at least one back issue per week—all the way back to the very first issue in 1931!
The search function is not finished yet, but the web guys are working on it and we hope to have it available shortly.
I also want to take this opportunity to assure you that we will continue to treat your personal information with the respect it deserves. We do not, and will not, sell, give away, or otherwise use your personal information to send you a bunch of garbage. And, I want to thank our loyal customers who have continued to support us through what is now the third generation of family ownership. This was a quality publication when we took over the helm almost ten years ago. Hopefully you will agree that it has continued to improve.
