I also am not sure how many issues they put out in a year. They have a deal now for a years subscription and it lists 7 issues, but if you opt for the digital format it is 12 issues?!? not sure what is up with that. And there web page looks to have been designed 20 years ago. Not that I think it needs to be pretty, but there are a bunch of drop down menus where it is not helpful.
When I first subscribed, I did the same thing- got the 7 issue special, but they don't really tell you when the 7 issues ends, they immediately start sending renewal notices, seems like I would get one every two weeks, even after I renewed. And the renewal notices do not tell you your subscription expiration date- would be so easy to do.

When I did have my subscription, I read every mag they had on-line in the archives section, and I think they had every mag they ever published, so that was interesting.
