NS Newsletter 002: 26 August 1997
_____________________________________________________________________ n a m e s u p p r e s s e d n e w s l e t t e r 0 0 2 August 26th 1997 _____________________________________________________________________ [this issue] * what went wrong * music samples available * ordering stuff * next newsletter [what went wrong] after a disastrous start, the namesuppressed newsletter is back and hopefully slightly more stable. as you may have noticed, the ascii artwork has disappeared, as it caused numerous problems in the last mailout. what the problem appears to have been is that the email is processed by either the computers at Geocities or by Claris Emailer, my email program. Either way, it looks like any email wider than 70 columns is not going to make it to its destination in quite the same shape as when I mailed it. if anyone wants to design any ascii art for this newsletter feel free, but it looks likely this will become a text only newsletter (which will appeal to those who hate ascii art). once again, I apologise for the waste of bandwidth last month in mailing out the newsletter again - hopefully, at least one of them worked for you. [music samples available] finally, I have got together some samples from the album which you can now listen to over the internet. to hear the samples, simply go to the namesuppressed website (the address is below), click on the downloads link and click on the little "wav" graphic next to the title of the song you want to listen to. at the moment there are samples from two songs - "Endless Green" and "Hockey Mad". both are about 30 seconds long and give a reasonably accurate idea of what the album is like. i'm still working on making entire songs available in S3M format (for those who haven't heard of S3M, basically this will mean that you'll be able to listen to an entire song from the album, except without the vocals). in preparation for when they're ready, a list of S3M player programs is on the downloads page, so you can get a program for your computer (programs are available for MS-DOS, Windows, Macintosh and Amiga at the moment). they haven't all been tested yet, so any comments would be appreciated. [ordering stuff] if you're wanting to buy a copy of "Rubicon", you really should place your order quickly - because, while there are still 50 copies available, 30 of these have been pre-booked, meaning there are only 20 copies left! as I probably mentioned in the last newsletter, all profit from the sale of "Rubicon" will go to aid the "Protect Australian Wildlife" fund and the "West Australian Epilepsy Association". Australian Orders -------------------- 1 copy of "Rubicon" $8 Australian 2 copies of "Rubicon" $14 Australian prices above are applicable for all locations in Australia. International Orders -------------------- Sea Mail prices 1 tape anywhere in the world $11 Australian 2 tapes anywhere in the world $20 Australian Air Mail prices (1 tape only) China, Japan, Singapore, New Zealand $12 Australian Canada, USA $13 Australian Finland, France, Norway, United Kingdom $14 Australian for prices for any countries not listed, send an an email to the address at the end of this newsletter. Please Note: sending cash notes through the post is not encouraged and is not legal in Australia, and anyway, the only notes that an Australian could make use of would be Australian Dollars or US Dollars. there are two other methods of payment: a cheque or money order for Australian Dollars, or bank cheque in your own currency. if paying by bank cheque in any currency other than Australian Dollars, you must add an extra $10 Australian to cover bank fees that I will have to pay. are you interested in buying a copy? if so, send an email to email@example.com and I'll give you the details of where to send your cheques to. [next newsletter] if you read the info at the end of this newsletter, you'll know that the newsletter comes out "whenever it is ready - at most monthly". as i've got some important exams coming up in a matter of weeks the next newsletter could be a bit of time coming (i don't expect that will disappoint too many people, but anyway...) just because the website doesn't change and there's no newsletter in your email box doesn't mean that namesuppressed is dead - far from it. there are still lots of songs almost ready to be released on the site, so hang in there. namesuppressed will be back before you know it... .no colour no horizon. ------------------------------------------------------ namesuppressed the namesuppressed newsletter is the official newsletter of the namesuppressed fanclub (surprisingly enough). it is released whenever it is ready - at most monthly. to unsubscribe to the newsletter, simply send email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the body containing the words UNSUBSCRIBE NAMESUPPRESSED NEWSLETTER. you will then be removed from the list. for any further information to do with namesuppressed, simply contact email@example.com and I'll get back to you as soon as possible. http://www.geocities.com/Hollywood/Hills/3573/nsindex.html ______________________________________________________________________
