it (Dell makes a really nice one, possibly the one
you use). For anyone interested in trying it with a
“regular” monitor, it’s important to realize some
monitors have poor viewing angles when you tip
them on their side. For looking at a document in
portrait mode, however, it’s hard to beat!—Ed.

eJournal Is Still Pleasurable to Read
At first, I wasn’t sure about the paperless LJ; I really
prefer to read stuff on paper. PDFs tend to have small
print, even on my old 19" 1280x1024 LCD. But you
seem to have boosted the point size a little, and
reading on-screen really is rather pleasurable.
As to paying for a subscription to the magazine, I
paid for access to the information, not the paper. In
fact, I started with IEEE Micro. When that went away,
I subscribed to Embedded Linux Journal. When that
folded, my subscription was transferred to LJ, which
has now become, in a way, eLJ. And, I’m still reading
interesting articles about different aspects of Linux,
hardware and computing in general.
The more things change, the harder it is to peel the
orange. Change is inevitable; what matters is how
we manage that change and cope with it.
Thank you for the kind words! I have noticed the
layout, while still magazine-shaped on the PDF, is a
bit different and looks nice on a computer screen. I
don’t know the exact details about what changed,
but I think it looks good both on a computer and on
a color e-reader. I’m glad you’re enjoying it.—Ed.
