Hi Kathleen,

Is it possible to subscribe to this quarterly publication, so we can get an email with (a link to) the pdf of the Technical Highlights, as soon as the new edition is available?

regards, Martin.

Seeing as how this is the Jan - Mar issue, will the Apr - Jun issue be coming end of June then? Is that how it's going to work? End of each quarter, instead of the beginning of each?

Hi Kathleen,

I enjoyed the Q1 issue very much.

Something for everyone!:
1. For syntax geeks, everything you wanted to know about the ACROSS command.
2. For MS Office mavens, how to integrate reports and visualizations into .pptx's.
3. For people smarter than me, which is almost everyone and especially my children, how IB is supporting blockchain technologies.
4. For Carl Sagan fans, how First Rate sends out 'millions and millions' of reports.

Looking forward to future issues.

-Dave
