    Not particularly a forum announcement, but to spark discussion I decided to post the announcement here in any case.

    Today we launched the new version of our weekly newsletter. You should be getting the letter during Friday / Saturday, and we'd very much like to hear what you think!

    If you haven't subscribed to the newsletter yet, you can do so at

    I like the new colour..But not to fond of the way the page is layed out.THE Older one to me was more simplistic,and categorized a little better.But old dog am I..Firm believer in QUOTE!!If It Ain't Broke Don't Fix It

    I'll go along with Rick there. Not sure if at this point it is anything other than things changing when you were totally happy with the old, but I do know that it is harder to read. I liked the dark print, whereas now you have the light blue for all the links which isn't as easy on the eyes. I'm sure I will get used to it just like all the other stuff we encounter that has been changed "for the better", when the old way was so familiar and comfortable and worked fine and dandy.

    Definately more appealing and better color scheme. Layout...i prefer the old school on this one. It'll just take some getting used to.

    Good stuff all in all.

    Thank you for all the feedback! Especially critique is welcome -- it's hard to make anything better if no-one tells you what you're doing wrong. ;-)

    The link color received some criticism from several readers. It was actually the default HTML blue link color, but we've made it a bit darker. Hopefully that'll make the contrast better and the newsletter easier to the eyes.

    We've also received a lot of feedback via email. Thanks go out for all the praises and suggestions. Overall the feedback has been positive, so I guess the change was mostly for the better!

    If you don't subscribe to our newsletter (yet) and are curious as to what the fuss is about, click below to view last week's edition.

    Thanks to replies to previous question I have had a lot of success burning DVDs. But suddenly when I try to do so I get a dialog box that says "There is not enough free space on drive C" Any suggestions in simple language please as I am not computer literate.

    Just happen to be checking some back Newsletters and saw your question. Did you finally get an answer?

    To TRAVELMGR.
    I did. The answer was to open my "C" drive then from File drop down menu open a new folder and name it. I called mine DVDMovies.
    When DVDFAB asks for target I type C:\DVDMovies. Use DVDshrink for burning, from Open Files menu select DVDMovies folder.
