Reduced Distribution on CompuServe -- If you've become accustomed to downloading TidBITS from a CompuServe forum, the time has come to change your habits. We'd been thinking about dropping direct CompuServe distribution because the download counts have fallen while direct email subscriptions to CompuServe subscribers have been climbing steadily, plus CompuServe Navigator is old, clunky, and difficult to automate.

We have no problem with TidBITS appearing in CompuServe forums but don't plan to handle the distribution any more. If anyone wants to upload the issues, as is happening in the MACCLUB forum, feel free to do so.
