Dear All,

We apologize for the faux pas of attaching the pdf's to the list.  We 
don't have a history of
aggressively self-promoting on the lists, so we're sorry to do so now.

Also, to your other points, we use nothing but free software in the
business.  Our graphics person, who made the PDFs, is free-lance, and
happens to use nothing but Apple and Adobe software.  To us, it's all
about choice, and where we can, we don't impose our preferences on
creative or technical people.

I don't think we have anything to apologize for as regards being
hard-working or reputable contributors to the free software community,
but it would be inappropriate to belabor this.

Thanks, and again, we apologize for advertising to the list.
