  • Looking forward to this issue :)

    Thanks guys !!

  • The new format is great!
    And thanks for this interessting magazine.

  • hi..
    i think the magazine is really cool in its design and looks, but the font in the body needs a little touch up. sometimes it looks a lil weired while reading.!!

  • Thanks a lot guys! Great article on hosting code on launchpad/bazaar :)

  • really like your magazine. maybe i will take part (if there’s time).
    looking forward to the next issue…

  • 非常好!
    very good!

  • I loved the A4 format better. Easier to print dubbel sided and I like to store all the magazines (in papper form) and then it’s also nicer that they have the same shape.
    I also miss theh New’s site, even if they are old (editor’s comment) they are new for me and every body else that doesn’t keep their face in front of the net the whole time, I like to be able to catch up with you just reading this great magazine.

    Br, and keep up the good work…

  • Hi,
    I love Full Circle, great magazine, but I find that I can’t keep up with the latest. Can I make like a php script that will be like latest.php and it would be either an rss feed with only the issues, or just the latest. So when the feed updates the latest edition can be automatically downloaded. I would be glad to write the script for you, I work on WP plugins, so I’m familiar with how WordPress operates. Please let me know! Its already half done, I just need to know if you want the code and I’ll send it to you. Just send me an email. :) Thanks!

    Ronnie: there’s two ways to keep up with us, one is to copy the RSS Feed for ‘posts’ (top right) to your RSS reader as we always post when a new issue goes online and also: sign up to the blog. We send out a mass email to all members when an issue is released. Failing that, you can check ‘The Fridge’, join the Ubuntu News or Ubuntu Maketing mailing lists as we also post there too! But feel free to write your script and email it to linuxgeekery

  • @Ronnie:
    Yeah, all it does it sift through your RSS feed and only display the one that have issue in them and then finds the download link (the only part that isn’t done).
    A simple way, is to put all the full circle issues in there own category, like reeses. Then all you have to do is add feed/ to the end of the url eg:
    and you get an instant rss feed of only the magazine releases. :) Hope that helps.
