IssueOneRedesign and the big announcement...
Just to make the waiting for Issue05 a little less painful, i redesigned the very first machinimag issue. It's the same content, but this time you shouldn't have that many problems reading it...
IssueTwo is also being redesigned to be easier on the eyes.
Also, the online versions of IssueOne and Two have been removed. If you still want to read them online - for whatever reason - please contact me.
The PDF Link for IssueTwo is down for the redesign as well.
Be sure to tell me how you like the new numberOne!

And maybe i'll beat myself later for this announcement but -
By the time Issue05 is coming out (hopefully before christmas) there will be a limited time offer for people to get a full color printed version of all the machinimag issues to-date sent to you for a small fee to cover the printing and shipping expenses.
Anyone interested?
