Thanks....I was just moping about how people seem to prefer drama to ZiP,
so your reply was timely.

I have a PDF of the entire issue that I'm going to upload to the site! (As
soon as my path & Miloh's cross at Noisebridge & he's able to help me cede
it.) In fact, 2 PDFs: one that's reader friendly & one that's printer
friendly - so people can download & print copies themselves easily, at no
charge (from us, anyway).

Thanks for doing that, though. Incidentally, if anyone with the requisite
knowledge wants to help me optimize the
website<http://zine.noisebridge.net/>- make it searchable, make it
possible to click through from one page of
the zine to the next, make it a site people will flock to by the thousands
- I welcome that!

In fact, if anyone is interested in guest-editing ZiP03 (due date: July
1st) talk to me! I'm envisioning 4 issues of this thing right now (one
year's worth), then I may be moving back to Portland & handing the reins of
ZiP over to someone else -- if anyone will take them. Or maybe that's all
just a lie & I'll spend the rest of my life in San Francisco.

Yes, there are as many as 4 or 5 versions of some pages. That's another
"hairball" I've got to comb out. I want each page to have a unique,
systematically logical URL that never changes - hence the idea of
continuous pagination (in hexadecimal): there will never be more than one
of any given page number, no matter how long ZiP goes.

Is Python one of the Languages of Choice yet?
