Hi members!

This is just an FYI the April 2012 newsletter just went live a few minutes ago! If you are subscribed it should be in your email inboxes right now!

The newsletter is free and features pet tips, pet pix and other pet related items of interest.

To get the newsletter all you need to do is look at the top of any page in the forum and just add your name and email address where it says

If you have already done so in the past you don't need to do it again - the newsletter should be in your inbox right now. (If it's not try checking your junk/spam email folder and whitelist the address for the future).

Just as an FYI, You can easily unsubscribe if you ever want to and we never trade, sell, rent or pimp out your email address in any way.

As always, we feature pics from the photo challenges in this forum in our newsletter. BUT we only feature the photos of those members that have given us permission in this thread -
Is it okay to use some of your pics in our blog or newsletter?
There are quite a few new members since the last newsletter so we encourage you to reply to that thread with a "yes I'd love to see my pet in the newsletter", in order to make it into the next one.

Thanks Everyone! :goodvibes:

Marko, is the newsletter very heavy? I'd like to take a look but am on slow dial up. Would I be best to wait till I'm on satellite? Paperwork for that will be posted on Tuesday - hooray!!!

Congrats on the upcoming satellite hookup, GF! :highfive:

In the meanwhile, though, when I was on dial-up I had no problem downloading the newsletter. It's almost always less the 50 KB in size and downloaded quickly.

Newsletter is very, very light GF.
It's just text and a few images that I personally optimize for speed.
I'd guess that it might be 125k or less so on a dialup modem it should only take a few seconds to get from the server to your inbox.
Thx! marko

Thanks, Hazel and Marko. A friend sent me something the other day that was 4MB. :eek: I imagine satellite is going to be a real shock. :D For big things I'd have to take the tower on an 80 mile round trip to get stuff downloaded. I was assured that I'd be getting satellite a lot sooner than the major Wimmera city would be getting their fibre optic. Yay!

i remember getting files that big about 7-8 years ago when I too was on dialup...I think it's the reason i went bald actually. :laughing:
