Found another sentence without end. Check out page 16 - in the "Introducing Tablet PC 2005" article. Ironically, the first bullet, "Correcting your mistakes", ends like this:

"In this panel you can also add any words that aren't into the dictionary to your custom dictionary, which"

Which what?

JOSH....

it was josh...

Seriously though, I thought we'd nailed that problem already. It has something to do with the way we send PDFs since we started using Indesign instead of Quark.

The sentence ends: "which will further improve recognition accuracy."

may as well say this too, on monarch's page, for the november issue (got it yesterday) i was looking through it and it said they had a FX-55. those havent come out yet i assume... i looked at their site and it didnt say they had them. so this may be ur fault but its probably monarch's fault.

As always, ad content is 100% up to the people who pay for ads. We have absolutely nothing to do with that, nor do we even see it before we get the final magazine.

Are you kidding me? You don’t have any rules about pr0n? No way.. you guys GOTTA check the content before final printing just in case. Otherwise for a few hundred/thousand dollars any sick shmuck could forever taint the name of MPC with tubgirl or goat-se.

I thought in journalism you guys had to have .. what’s it called again? clippings? Whatever it is you guys send to the people who bought the ad to prove it was printed. Maybe its just newspapers I'm thinking about. Damn it that journalism class didn't teach me jack about magazine publishing.

BTW I know you guys want journalism experience for people to write for MPC but are classes really necessary? I mean if you were just a good writer and knew loads about comps could you get in? I wouldn't mind working for MPC for awhile, heck even being an intern would rule.

I think he means MaxPC doesn't has nothing to do with the ads - it's handled by FutureNetworkUSA, who publishes MaximumPC (as well as a bunch of other mags).

The advertising weenies make sure that tubgirl doesn't end up in the mag.

When I say 'we' here, it usually means 'the editorial staff'. The editors and advertising weenies are all employees of the same company (Future Network USA) and have been for ages. Before someone asks, Future Network USA is the exact same company as Imagine Media, the company just changed names a couple of years ago. There was no big change or anything like that.
