This sounds great, but also super sketchy. Do you not have a website for this?
 
Good question !

The key question for the bulletin was : what format ?

- website : many good ones already exist, a new web site would have
very limited value (WC CIC website is perfect I couldn't imagine
doing better !)

- vertical format mag (pdf) : classical style, the one to print. The one you don't
have near by you when you need it. Not adapted at all to
today's computers LCDs

- Horizontal pdf : storable on a hard disk, well adapted to modern screens

The choice is a compromise, but an horizontally displayed bulletin has
advantages, you will see.

I don't know if you are not english speaking or avoiding Chris' question? YOu don't need to explain to people how PDFs work, for example. Maybe post a screenshot of what you are talking about.
 
More infos

You are right AD ..... english isn't my mother tongue. Understanding better
now Chris question I can precise that the idea is to propose in every issue
articles on softwares related to different space activities. Very different
but all concerning space. That may seem strange but working in a space
agency I use "serious" things at work, CELESTIA during my break and WC or
other SciFi games in the evening, that is where the idea comes from. I join 2
images of the 1st issue for you to better see.

That's interesting. Who is involved with making this? Is it a hobby of yours? How long have you been doing it? How often do you distribute it? I'd have to think you'd reach a lot more people if you made this thing and then put it on a website to download instead of required people to get on your email list.
 
That's a hobby. This is the first issue, I wanted to do something positive to start
2009 ! I spent time to find an acceptable page design, besides that doing articles
goes pretty fast. 17 pages in issue 1. Though I'm still the only one to write I benefit from my community of professional contacts having the same taste, and
they are more numerous than expected. A small community takes shape fairly
fast. Issue two will be for april. I tend now to think that you are write : I need a
website, you convinced me Chris ! There is also the idea to merge the mag with
another one in France but centered on a specific game. The target is by end 2009
to propose fans a 100-150 free mag every two months. have a good weekend Chris.
 
Website is done, magazine is ready. Just a few details to treat to upload the
site well to my provider before the grand opening (thursday/friday).
:)
 
New version

I have uploaded a much more ambitious version of the site today.
There is a VIDEO SECTION. It can be SLOW ... but movies get
loaded and you can SAVE them. But remember that it can takes
time (I will improve the situation ASAP).

Thanks ALOT for your positive comment ! !

Long live WCs !
