    Soft Copies


    [list=1][*]I'd like to have access to electronic "soft copies" of articles that appear in ON. Navigating the laptop while in the bathroom is more difficult than reading the magazine, but for all other times, it would be pretty cool to read the articles online.
    [*]I'd like to see the Fleamarket go online, with facilities to add, change, or delete advertisements.[/list=1]

    I agree, an online flea market would be vastly more useful to me. I always seem to get my copy of the magazine a couple of weeks after everyone in the US gets it. Needless to say anything in the flea market I'd like to buy is long since sold. When I finally get my copy, all I can do is read the ads and weep over the good deals I've missed.

    I'd also like to see a list of advertisers with web links. It would save me a lot of typing in of addresses.

    I would love to see the online flea market as well, but I think that will be one of the last things that happen. Politics as they are, and the ON being such a popular item, taking the flea market from that forum to this one would be a very unpopular move. there are other forums that have a flea market you can check out online. I imagine that the folks posting in the ON will also add the items to these forums as well, since the move to the internet happens to more of the BMW community. But for now, I dont see the flea market coming to the MOA forum. Just my .02

    Talking Nice to know when it is sold...

    It would be nice that if an item is listed in the Hard Copy ON one could put a status online.

    Perhaps give each ad a number. One could put a numer on the ad, then a status on the webpage. One could then go to the website, put in the number. See if it is sold, place the order... etc.

    Blackberry ... Rasberry

    So can Verizon, Nextel, iPAQ, AT&T, Qualcomm.... insert technology here. However it helps if the pages are in WML (Wireless Markup Language) - I know for experience.

    I know the IBMWR marketplace is awesome, but putting one on here is what I was wondering about. It was discussed at the national meeting, ( I was there) and it seemed like there would be reluctance to adding it here, and removing it from the ON magazine. non computer types would get their panties in a wad if they didnt have those ads to look at every month I am sure.
