  • eTracknewsletter Query

    One of the best value-added perks of subscribing to T&FN (dinosaur that it is :wink: ) is the eTN that comes virtually every week. Today I got THREE of them (mNCAA, wNCAA, NB HS) and I just have to wonder, how much work is this and who's responsible? I have this vision of gh hunched over a keyboard, cut'n'pasting and reformatting like a madman. If this is not a labor of love, the pay CAN"T be enough.

    Just sayin' . . .

    Ditto....I have thought the same thing..just insufficiently motivated to comment.. content to let Marlow do the heavy lifting..

        The lists provided on this site are GREAT.....but I still miss the PRINT version of TN.....which ended around 2002.

        I'd be willing to pay $100....or even $150 per year for the old print TN.
        It was 40 or 42 issues....weekly during the season.....and the total page count was well over 200 per year.....sometimes close to 300.

        T&FN could print the copies BY ORDER.......so there would be no wasted copies!
        In other words.......you pay, we print!!

        I suspect that even in this cyber world we inhabit....there would be several people who would pay what's required for the PRINT TN!!

          Please remit the money ASAP. I would be glad to print out an extra copy every time and mail it to you!!!!!

            Results of the major meets are nicely formatted and with great notes, such as PRs, national records, place on all-time lists and so forth. The real gold in those eTNs are the results from the middle of f'ing nowhere, places that make outer Mongolia look metropolitan.

            Like I've said before, I'd kill for .pdf versions of the old print TNs.

              Earth calling aaronk: allow me to save you 100 bucks off your willingness to pay for the old print TN. For $43.95 you can have the magazine and TN e-mailed to you. You then open the PDF and hit the "print" button on your computer and omigosh,there's a print version.

              And forget the piker days of 200 or 300 pages: last year's count was 580.

                Yes, it is bloody amazing. Almost too much to read. I can only imagine how hard it would be to put together.

                    Am I the only one seeing this on eTN2013_13, March 10 eTrack? There is just bizarre capitalization in the middle of titles.

                    I am seeing:
                    60 meTer s, ditto 200, 400, 800, 3000, 5000
                    mILe
                    60 HUrDLes
                    DIsTANCe meDLeY

                    I could go on. What's up????

                      My PDF looks fine, but there are any number of issues you could be having on your end with the file.

                        Mine doesn't have it either. Sometimes I have to download it a second time, because there's gibberish occasionally. It fixes itself on the second try. The events are in ALL CAPS.

                          Issue 14 has a similar problem. The aforementioned problem on issue 13 also showed up on my work computer. Issue 15 seems fine. Weirdness going on. Maybe a font issue, I don't know.

                          Edit to add: There are all sorts of letters that should be capitalized that are not, and occasional letters that shouldn't be capitalized that are. Only for issues 13 and 14. And yes, I did download them a couple of times.
