I thought we subscribers got our copy before it went on general release, but perhaps the postman is still recovering from Christmas...

Not had my subscription copy yet

Did you forget to post them while in the pub doing the podcast?

Yeah me neither!

Where's my postie with my copy also???

BTW shouldn't the cover read "Learn how to CRACK"?

Love the OpenBSD review!

I haven't read it, but I'm glad to see OpenBSD mentioned!

@Big Bob

I think you're right about cracking!

I'm compiling a jargon-file at the minute, for the disc and the website, so a clarification on these terms should at least make it in to there :-)

download the pdf if you cant wait

Hey there,
You can download the whole mag as a pdf if your'e a subscriber. So stop bitching, jees. Use calibre to change it to epub and read it on your android tablet or phone. Sweet!


late Copy

It's Saturday the 7th and I still haven't got my copy!


Cracking your own nuts

I think you are going to crack your own nuts by using hack in a sense that is determinedly offensive to the largest majority of the open source community. Good luck with thinking up an answer to the complaints.

Hack != Crack

I've gotta agree with the others here, you should've used "Learn to CRACK". Screw marketability - disregard the common misconception and use the correct definitions. Linux Format, I am a little disappoint.

I would have been happier...

with "Learn to hack*"

*black hat style.

Would have bought a copy

Of this issue if you sold single Issue PDFs...
