I'm sad to see the end of "The View" mag in print format

I must be getting old because each time I see the end of a print mag or get told no more printed books (for example Lotus redbooks, Domino manuals) I feel disappointed. 

My current issue of The View tells me there will be no more print copies.

On a good note, they are promising more articles more frequently in their excellent online knowledge base. Time will tell.

I would be glad if the online versions were free. :)

Back in the day, we used to get the subscriptions and the articles were very good. In those days, it was hard to connect with other people using Notes/Domino to the extreme except at Lotus Notes User Group meetings (if they had those in your area).

Fast forward 10 years and we now have Show N Tell Thursdays, and the Bleed Yellow public Sametime server - which are equally as good resources.

I was talking to someone from the View at the Part last night. He said that the printed manual would continue for "some" customers. So if you're a subscriber and really want it maybe they'll give it to you if you make a little fuss.

He also said that they would be bringing out articles monthly so that's a great thing!
