Current and past issues are available as Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) files. The most recent issues are not available for download on this public web page. LIMac members are e-mailed monthly upcoming meeting info and a download link for the most recent Forum issue.
The Acrobat files are fully formatted with styled text and photos, just like the real printed version. Save some trees and read the paperless way. Online version made with 100% post-consumer electrons.

Mac OS X 10.6.4 or newer Intel based Mac users (including Mountain Lion users) should be using Adobe Reader 11.0.2, available here. Intel based Mac users still using Mac OS X 10.5.8 should be using Adobe Reader 10.1.4, available here plus the 10.1.6 security update.

Mac OS 10.4.11 or newer (Intel or PPC based) users can which gets you the latest and greatest Adobe Reader 9.5.4 This is the last release for Power PC based Macs (G4 or G5). Mac OS 10.4.3 to 10.4.10 users will be offered Adobe Reader 8.2.2 which is as good as it gets for G3 based Macs.
Mac OS 10.4.2 to 10.2.8 users can get Adobe Reader which gets you this: Adobe Reader 7.1.0
Mac OS 10.2.2 to 10.2.7 users can only get as far as the Adobe Reader 6.01 and the 6.0.2 updater and 6.0.3a updater and 6.0.4 updater.
If your Power Mac has Mac OS 9.1 to 10.2.1, get self-contained Acrobat Reader 5.1 installer Acrobat 5 icon otherwise get Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0.5a. Acrobat 4 icon Needs at least System 7.1.2 Does not include latest ATM Light 4.6.2. If you use AdobePS 8.8 also get the 4.6.2a updater. Latest Forum issues are in Acrobat 5 format and don't work well in older (version 4 or older) Acrobat readers.

OLD TIMER's TECHNICAL NOTES: If the "Forum.pdf" file downloads as an unknown kind of document, you need to set up Netscape's Options:General Preferences-Helpers tab. Click here for screen shots and particulars for both Netscape Navigator 2.0.x and 3.0.x and AOL 3.0. If this still doesn't work, drag and drop it's generic icon onto Acrobat Reader's icon. It should have a type of 'PDF ' (note the space after PDF) and a creator of 'CARO'. I would suggest Snitch (Get Info... enhancer) to fix Type and Creator codes.

Many people have trouble with PDF files on the web because of a limitation and a bug in the PDF browser plug-in. I suggest removing it and setting Adobe Reader or Acrobat Reader to be the helper application, rather than use the plug-in. This is set in the Preferences-Receiving Files-File Helpers for extension .pdf and MIME type "application/pdf"

Download June 2014 Issue

Download the 8 page Forum as a Acrobat file. In full color! After editing, a small 2.2 MB in size. Also the URLs, e-mails and many references to Internet resources are live, so you can click on them and go right to the web page mentioned. Look for the pointing finger cursor over the hot spot of the web addresses. I made the hot links visible with a dashed blue box so you won't miss them. "Continued on..." references are hot links too.

If you are downloading the Forum and are not yet a member, I urge you join and come to the meetings. You miss out on a great time by not attending and you miss out on many other advantages a LIMac membership card brings.

Each month, the Forum is assembled from contributions from members and the Internet, edited and produced in Adobe InDesign CS5.5 and exported into Acrobat format by Al Zygier.
   Adobe has donated a copy of Acrobat Distiller and Exchange for our electronic publishing needs.
Al, like all of the leaders of LI Mac, volunteers his time for the benefit of our group. If you like his handiwork on the Forum and want to sent him a compliment, I'm sure he'd like a little e-mail.
Al recently took over from Mo Lebowitz who did the Forum for several years.

The Forum plus this web site won the 2001 User Group Academy Award for Best User Group Overall and the Forum won "Best in Show Newsletter" The Forum won The Special Judges Citation of Excellence
in the 2000 UG Academy Awards -
Medium User Group Category.

MoOur Forum has won First Prize
in not one, but two categories in the
1998 National Mac Users Group
Newsletter Competition.
Congratulations Mo!
