This was a good intro to working with SMD packages. The PDF is the much more readable format, just like the magazine page:

PDF file with images

HTML with seperate images

Hi Steve

Thanks for the offer , but i could download the linked PDF fine.

What i was referring to was that i went to the EDN site and they offered a free digital subscription , but not if you choose Denmark as country.

So technically i'll have to browse their site each month , instead of getting it shipped as PDF in my mailbox.

I cant be more expensive to mail to me , than to any other US person.

I assume it is the same reason that free print subscriptions need to be "validated"--the mag needs to justify to its advertisers that so many "qualified"--i.e., people that buy enough stuff--viewers see each issue.

You could try saying that you are from Canada or Mexico or (gasp!) US and see if it works. Do you think they are really going to track down your email address to see where it comes from? :) [or subscribe to a generic Yahoo or Hotmail account, then update to your real email.]

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig.

I've never met a pig I didn't like, as long as you have some salt and pepper.

On the flip side, I subscribed to EDN many years ago when I seemed to have more time to keep up with reading it. Over the years I've found that they tend to stack up on my desk as I don't have (or don't make) the time to read them. About two years ago I decided not to renew the subscription when the time rolled around again. At first, they started sending friendly reminders that it was time to renew. As the deadline got closer the "reminders" seemed to become increasingly more desperate until finally they apparently decided that clearly I didn't realize what I was doing so they went ahead and automatically renewed me anyway. I've just gone through my second cycle of this. I've tried unsubscribing over their website, responding to their email pleas and everything I can think of. The magazines just keep rolling in...

If you want to get rid of a free magazine that just won't quit, file a change of address. If the address doesn't exist, they'll get returned and the publisher will get the message. They don't normally dig back to your previous address. :twisted:

Good idea! I never thought of that one.
