  1. Hi Amy, The 1st issue of esque is fantastique!!! I can’t say enough great things about it.

    [There is one minor problem: the site will not load correctly in a Firefox browser. The Flash crashes. I had to view it in IE, which I never use.]

    Thanks for a great new publication!

    All best,

  2. I can get Firefox to take it, but that’s on a new Windows-7
    machine. I’m afraid a lot of software from different sources
    bumped their mem requirements at the same time.
    It was tough for a few months…I had to keep killing acrobat
    stuff to survive.
    I finally ended up buying this thing and spent 2 weeks stripping
    trialware and interface gunk until it worked OK…

    Ah, the future.
