Postscript.

POSTSCRIPT POSTSCRIPT: Like most publishers, we've become increasingly concerned about the deterioration in Post Office delivery standards. Even though we mail at first class rates, it often takes four days (or more) for issues of the newsletter to each West Coast readers. Soft*letter doesn't cover much late-breaking news, of course, but we'd like to offer somewhat faster turnaround.

In pursuit of this goal, we've decided to float a trial balloon for an electronic edition, to be offered--at least initially--through MCI Mail. (We want to emphasize that this offer is an experiement: If there isn't enough interest, we won't try to force a technological solution on folks who don't feel there's a problem that needs to be solved.)

Here's the deal: If you're interested in receiving a electronic version of the newsletter in addition to our regular print version, call, write, or fax us. (Our fax number is 617/924-7288.) There's no charge for the electronic edition or the download time; all you need to do is give us your MCI address. We'll upload our electronic version as soon as the print version goes to the printers, so you'll gain at least three or four days off our regular production and mailing cycle.

For those people who don't already have an MCI account, we've arranged for MCI to waive its usual sign-up charges. (Sorry, current MCI Mail customers aren't eligible for this deal.) You should probably have an MCI account anyway, so this offer can be construed as a gentle nudge into The Age of Connectivity.

There's no firm deadline for signing up for our electronic edition, but we plan to look at response levels sometime by the end of May. At that time we'll decide whether this is a service we should pursue more aggressively. Naturally, you input on this question is most welcome.
