I have to agree with the sentiments expressed here.
I was a subscriber to LangaList for years, both the free version and the (very reasonable) paid. Although I didn't always understand everything Fred was writing about I read virtually all his items in each issue simply because he was honest, clear and down to earth in trying to explain computers and help people.
I was apprehensive of his move to Windows Secrets, hoping we wouldn't lose the quality and sheer quantity of his work but my worst fears have been realized. There is virtually nothing of interest in the current newsletter. I don't mind ads even though I had contributed money for the paid version but there's just nothing to read of any value, at least to me. I suppose the security update stuff is important but I can read AskWoody for that. Otherwise it's how to install Vista without buying the full upgrade or...
Heck, I can't even think of anything they have even run lately, that's how much of an impression the newsletter makes.
But all good things end and so did my paid subscription. I do wish Fred a great retirement (it's very nice, speaking from personal experience!) and thank him for his amazing contribution to computing over all these years.
And we have the DC newsletter to look forward to and the forum here so there's no dearth of great computing info.
