I haven't received my copy yet - unusual, since I almost always get it by the 15th. You've done a wonderful job of getting this magazine out on time - two weeks early, actually - every month for the past two years (at least; I'm sorry but I've lost count). I really don't understand what the extra packaging would give me for the few extra bucks, but if other subscribers are sufficiently impressed to share their experience, I might be willing to try it. Richard, you are to be commended for constantly improving this publication. Keep up the good work!
