Subject: Change to Venturist web site
Date: Sun, 10 Nov 2002 10:34:08 -0000

http://www.venturist.org has undergone a further change .. a much shorter
Adobe pdf file has been uploaded for the 4th quarter 2000 issue of the
newsletter. This will make it quicker to receive this issue if you wish to
download the pdf version. Further jpg pdf files are expected soon to make
the other earlier pdf issues quicker to download.

The contents of 4th quarter 2000 are:

Venturist Annual Meeting, Recent Suspensions, Philosophy Major, Preparing
for Your Suspension, Other Cryonics Matters, Venturist Board of Directors,
Reasons of the Heart, The Philosophy of Aspiration, Part 4 (Conclusion), Van
Vogt's Resurrection, Consciousness and Context

There is in fact an html version of this issue as well. It is without the
graphics and layout, but the text files download fast. The objection to html
is that the newsletters are originated in pdf and it is a lot of work to
convert them. The improved pdf files with jpg compression of the graphics
are much smaller and the difference between download times is therefore less
(approx 4:1 instead of 16:1). The old pdf of this issue was over a megabyte,
the new pdf is 229K and the html version 66k.

Sincerely, John de Rivaz:  http://John.deRivaz.com for websites including
Cryonics Europe, Longevity Report, The Venturists, Porthtowan, Alec Harley
Reeves - inventor, Arthur Bowker - potter, Holistics, de Rivaz genealogy,
Nomad .. and more
