News From The HPCNL Editor's Desk - Last Post Dated 6/2/2008
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted June 2, 2008

Well now I know how Rodney Dangerfield felt when he said - "I can't get no respect - no respect at all!"

It's difficult enough producing a newsletter for an essentially dead mobile platform, but it's pretty sad when the premiere website for Handheld Pc's - HPC:Factor.com forgets to to even mention the May 2008 issue of the newsletter.

Hmmm - can't get no respect....no respect at all! :-)

Better luck with the June issue - maybe?

BTW - Newsletter down loads for the May Issue were 5,597 - highest count so far this year! Hmmm?

Regards

John Ottini - Editor
Handheld PC Newsletter

..."

Regards, Don

I am just a newcomer of HPCs and this site is the very first and best place telling me everything I need to know about this species. Been reading the newsletters and the backissues. Really nice work! I'm sure you've got a great deal of respect from your readers (I for one). Please keep it up!

I thought you were supposed to submit your own news to this site, in case the webmaster is too busy with some other project -- did you submit the May and June issues?

Readers are encouraged to send news, of course, but it goes without saying that a lot of the news is supplied by C:Amie himself. As you may have noticed, when the news is provided by another member, he gives credit to that member for providing it.

Cool! Just reading it now.
I have a question though. I find that clicking the URL hyperlinks in the document doesn't call upon the browser. Neither can I copy the link and paste it (asking for the password of the encrypted PDF). Perhaps it would be nice to have the links "clickable" or something like that?

All the links worked on the original PDF I created and sent to Rich at HPCNEC.com

What are you using to read the PDF file?

I was reading it on my Macbook with the stock Viewer (which I tend to use because it's much faster than Adobe Reader). Clicking the URLs gives me a dialog box asking for a password.
Loading the file with Adobe Reader (for Mac) works. Still some links don't work as expected, like the one on "Skinning".
Hitting it makes the browser go to http://hpcnec.com/cgi-bin/hpcnec.cgi instead of http://hpcnec.com/cgi-bin/hpcnec.cgi?fid=04&topic_id=1209235253 as written in the PDF. Or would that be some wrinkle in the Mac build?
Never intended to be a tough guy. Actually I enjoy reading the Newsletter a lot. You have put such a great effort to keep these old yet still very useful (and by now inexpensive) machines alive.

You are right about the link to the Skinning article being incorrect......it should have been (as you point out) this -

http://hpcnec.com/cgi-bin/hpcnec.cgi?fid=04&topic_id=1209235253

Having said that, the link in the article does take you to HPCNEC main page, where you will have to select
FAQ's - Frequently Asked Question - What is Skinning? to get to the article.


Sorry about the confusion and thanks for pointing out my misdirection!

BTW - thanks for reading the newsletter.
