firstly, thanks for the site and the free ebook, just joined. As a highly literate computer professional, I cannot urge you enough not to have anything in .exe format! It is an absolute no no on the internet - it is the way most viruses are spread and

Am I ...  :deadhorse:

The PDF someone posted earlier looks good - hell ANYTHING is better than a .exe file. I bet people come to the first post in the thread, see an .exe file and dare not touch. Perhaps, put the PDF link on the first post as well..

thanks once again
Kuteguy - not the most felicitous choice of nickname around here ;D - welcome to RWD.

As stated upthread, at the time (2007) the .EXE choice was practically the only alternative available and no, we did not put any viruses into our E-book ;), the downloadable version was scanned with several anti-virus tools before release.

Which PDF version are you referring to? All the various conversion tools we tried last year gave poor results in formatting the pages, with images scattered all over with no rhyme nor reason :(.

As for literate computer professionals and users, we have a fair representation here, too. In my case, I worked 30 years for IBM, the last 15 of which on PCs and related SW 8).

By all means, if it's really readable. In that case, the download page should be amended to read something like this:

Quote
Warning: this E-Book was written in 2007. Many things have changed since then, particularly in Russia, therefore its content now is not entirely up to date.

The book is downloadable in 2 versions:

1. A .EXE file: this link will allow you to download it as an executable file with a .exe extension. Save it to the directory of your choice on your local hard drive,d then click the saved file to view it.

2. A .PDF file: this link will allow you to view or download it...

Point 2 should include whatever is appropriate.

BTW, since we're discussing this topic, the link at top right of the RWD page:
Quote
(News:
RWD E-Book, Men of the West - Women From the East, Now Available as
FREE Download! More Information HERE
)
points to the comments thread, not to the download page :(. It should be viceversa.

Thanks Duane. I see you've added:

We've also made it available in PDF format for non-Windows users, although this conversion had the side effect of breaking the navigation links.
But that is not much useful without a link ;).

I'd like you to modify that page as I've suggested, with some addendums:

Warning: this E-Book was written in 2007. Many things have changed since then, particularly in Russia, therefore its content now is not totally up to date.

The book is downloadable in 2 versions:

1. A .EXE file for Windows users: this link will allow you to download it as an executable file with a .exe extension. Save it to the directory of your choice on your local hard drive,d then click the saved file to view it.

2. A .PDF file for non-Windows users: this link will allow you to view or download it...(navigation links to relevant RWD topics not operative in this version)

After you have read the whole book, or parts of it, we should be grateful for your posting any comments at THIS http://www.russianwomendiscussion.com/index.php?topic=9568.0 link.

I believe it's only fair to warn readers about its age.

Ok, I've taken some liberties on your proposed text, but it's in there.

I followed the link:

it's a book called, "How To Serve Humanity"
it starts off with a list of required spices...

That is an old Twilight Zone episode and originally a short story by Damon Knight called:  To Serve Man.   In the end, the hero finds out its a cook book.
