    I just tried to apply for the 3 free months but I was denied. It says... A subscription is already associated with this account. Thanks for your support. Cheers!

    I've never signed up for this magazine before. I would like to check it out and see about subscribing to it. Please let me know what I am doing wrong. Thanks Todd!

    My bad. It wasn't displaying the "thanks" message after the form was submitted. This has been fixed; thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    You should receive an email confirmation too.

    Cheers!

    So would we; especially since our managing editor is living out there for a year. We're just looking for the right solution, and when we find it we'll let everyone know.

    You missed issue #79 with that sign-up date, so your first issue will be #80.

    I signed up for the three free issues, received only one, and now received an email stating the subscription ends this month. Will I receive the other two free issues?

    Thanks
