Subject: PDF file
I tried to download the journal file Vol 8, nbr 1, 1st Q-2000. I have Acrobat reader 4.05 installed, but the file is not completely shown. I noticed the next effects.
In the office with NT4.0 and Netscape 4.7. When I try to browse through the pages, Netscape stops responding and I have to kill it with the task manager. If I don't browse but send the file directly to a printer, also netscape stops and sometimes my entire PC locks up.
At home with W98 and explorer 5. During download of the PDF file, it kills acrobat with a fatal error.
The journal Vol 8,4 works fine.
Something wrong at your side or is it me?

Try to save the file by using "Save the target as". Then open adobe first (do not double click the file) and then go to file menu and open the file
This way the file will open

I successfully downloaded and viewed the RAC Journal, Volume 8, Number 1, 1st Quarter 2000 on various machines that were both inside and outside our corporate firewall. I could not repeat your error.
I invite you to try to view the RAC Journal an alternate way by right-clicking on the link to the PDF, then select the Save Target As command in the pop-up menu and save the file to your computer. Then open the PDF file using your adobe Acrobat reader. Thank you for your interest in the RAC web site. -Robert

I tried to save the file with a right click. It downloads until appr 54% then download finished (status window disappeared). When I open the PDF file with acrobat 4.05, it says that the file is damaged and could not be repaired!
Could you please send me that document to my my e-mail address John.van.Schendel@philips.com
