FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)
CAN I COPY MATERIAL OFF THE SITE WITHOUT PERMISSION?
In brief the answer is no, although we do sometimes release material for use elsewhere. If you wish to use any material off the site, please ask permission first. Using intellectual property without the owner’s permission is a criminal offence. Just to make matters more complicated, some of the material on this site is the subject to shared copyright or restrictions on its use, so you may find yourself being chased by organisations bigger than TalkHockeyRadio if you steal it.

Problems with Magazine
SOME OF THE TEXT IS JUMBLED UP OR MISSING
Ah, the web authors nightmare. Writing pages which will appear the same on every computer with every type of browser is very difficult, and you may have visited other web sites where the layout is a bit odd. For the magazine this is a particular problem because the original version is prepared for .pdf format and then converted to HTML (the native format for web sites). We are looking at ways of making our output more consistent.
I CANNOT SEE HOW TO SAVE OR PRINT THE MAGAZINE
Presuming that you are trying to do this with the .pdf version, recent versions of Adobe Reader require you to right click on the page to access the save and print commands.
