Pet Idol 2007
Just noticed this online poll on the Times- Standard web site. You can vote for your favorite pet. Give it a try.
Not too much of a bother except I like the T-S for reading with breakfast since there's generally more to read there than in the Eureka Reporter. I can also check the online version of the T-S but some stories often aren't included.
I've pretty much made up my mind that when my subscription to the T-S expires, I'll likely subscribe to the online version if only because it's quite a bit cheaper at $39 a year. Won't have to worry about missed deliveries or having to take the papers to the recycling center, either.
Still, there's something to be said about hard copy. What if the power goes out or the computer goes on the fritz?
Kind of strange that Liberty magazine would be doing that as they don't even offer a way to subscribe to their magazine online. They have an 800 number listed to call and subscribe and list a snail mail address but no online credit card or PayPal option.
Strange again is there's no mention of the e- version on their web site's subscription info page, at least last I looked.
I think you only save around $5.00 by subscribing electronically. I don't know if I want to go for that, or not. The only time I really read the magazine is when I'm down at UCSF Medical Center and, oddly enough, I don't have internet access in the waiting room of the Oncology Department so I'd need the hard copy.
Besides, they're offering it online as a .pdf file and I HATE dealing with .pdf files.
