some time I have been investigating how best to distribute Bikwil
on the World Wide Web, and can now announce that, all being well, we
should go on-line with the next issue (No. 19, May 2000).
set your minds at rest, though. The printed Bikwil
will not cease publication. On the contrary: the on-line
form of our mag will serve more as a supplement to the
paper version than as a substitute.
on top of Aussie postage increases in 1999, the new venture will add to
my expenses, and therefore to subscription prices. I have therefore
taken several steps to offset this rise in costs to you.
only fair that you readers who have kept the faith all these months will
be able to maintain your current subscription fee a little longer.
from the date of the price change (May 2000) Bikwil will be
enlarged from 16 to 20 pages.
when your subscription is due to rise, those with Internet access will
be able to receive Bikwil in an electronic form at no cost.
subscribers will find fuller details of these matters set out on a
