the good work." - Peter Kemp, Brisbane, Australia.
"I'm a bit of an e-newsletter nazi (I probably subsribe
to 20 or so) and YOURS is the only one I save, forward,

I trust you. thank you." - Kristina Williams, www.softlink.com.au,

readable style...go girl, and keep feeding our right
brains!" - Kathleen Clothier, Brisbane, Australia.

to my employer and some lighthearted reading during
breaks, this newsletter and its coulumns have been
a great help. Thanks Yvette!" - Brad Irwin,

conflict with my views - and I admire your respect
for others and the way you show it. Since attending
your workshop two years ago, in which I developed
respect for you and what you do, I have been an avid
subscriber of your newsletter and have passed it on
to many friends and collegues. Keep up the great work
Yvette - there are many of us who appreciate it -
thank you." - Shirley Reeves, Eagle Farm, Australia.

highlights of the week in an easily digestible and
personality-packed format." - Kerry Sunderland,
www.evolvemedia.com.au, Brunswick Heads, Australia.
"I really like your writing style - it has so much
energy...I reviewed a number of your past newsletters
and was very impressed with your writing style. You
have the ability to succinctly detail items and topics
that are usually dull, boring and generally tedious
to non 'techy' people." - Art Gibietis, Baltic
Enterprises, United States.
"This is from Kiwi land just to say that I enjoy
your newsletter better then any other news item I

"I enjoy all of your newsletters for many reasons
and, as space or my ISP's limit for my Mail Box, I
cannot list them all but some include that your writings
are easy on the eye as well as the mind. They are
understandable, readable yet do not treat me like
a moron. They are interesting, always amusing and
enjoyable. So much so that I have passed on your page
to many of my more alert friends. Thanks for a wonderful
newsletter." - Graham Hohenhaus, Toowoomba,
"I have only been listening to your spot on the ABC

with a lass known as Miss Megabyte. Your time on radio
& web site is a lot better." - Warren Gavin, Brisbane,

I find it has a lot of value for my students and I
frequently refer them to interesting sites, which
you have reviewed." - Mary-Lou Horner, Brisbane,
"I wish to congratulate you for finding new web sites
each week…I have found many interesting ways of surfing
the net, faxing free on the Internet, sending cards,
and lately visiting the Power House, playing with
colour tests and using a time zone converter which
is very convenient as I correspond with friends all
over the world. I hope you will keep the good work."
- Philip Morlet, Brisbane, Australia.
"I have been a subscriber of the brizcomm newsletter
for a long time now. I get a great deal of email and

to and read through to the end. Love the selection
of web sites to surf to and can't wait to check out
the Weekly Chuckle! I often refer others to this newsletter.
Thank you Yvette." - Annette Ramsey, Brisbane,
"Your brizcomm eNewsletter is always a 'must
read' for me. Because I have to keep up with what's
happening on the Net, it provides me with useful links
and ideas that I can usually apply straight away.
Keep up the good news!" - Iain
Duguid, Maleny, Australia.
"The brizcomm e-letter is enjoyable (life
may not be easy, but it can be fun!), short & snappy
(using concise & accessible language; avoiding jingoism),
actually useful (tips aren't laboriously expanded;
where detail is necessary a link is conveniently provided),
well structured (I always know 'where I am'
within the body of text; something which is easily
lost in an e-environment), varied (thus spicing
my life). I also find the following personal attributes
appealing. Yvette (in part) is: generous with her
time, ideas, thoughts & books! personable; the way
in which Yvette weaves the odd relevant strand of
her personal & professional life is refreshing & demonstrates
great integration. Then of course we have Yvette's
mother, Pollyanna, a very talented writer who regularly
contributes her wit & insight. No slavish tributes
to 'my dear old Mum' here nor any other kitsch. On
yer, Yvette!" - Chris Mansell, Adelaide, South
"As part of my job, I am subscribed to quite
a number of online newsletters - it's really important
to see how other people do things. Anyway, I have
a simple compliment for you ... yours is the only
one I read from top to bottom; I scan all the others.
I look forward to receiving your newsletter each week.
It is very well written and an interesting read -
I find myself clicking on at least two links per newsletter
which is a great response from me. Keep up the good
work!" - Leanne Jackson, Brisbane, Australia.
"I have found the brizcomm newsletter to be not only
informative but very entertaining. I have been able
to do research through the articles and apply new
and improved ways of operating my own business which
is Internet based. Keep up the fantastic work!" -
Jamie Brammah, My
Health Specials, West End, Australia.
"This is THE ONE e-zine out of a range of daily,
weekly and monthly e-zines I receive, that I save
to the end of the day as I know I will find some worthwhile
information, a gem or just a tit-bit to savour. Love
it! thank you." - Kristina Williams, Brisbane,
"Brizcomm is a welcome visitor to my inbox because
it gives an Antipodean slant on the industry I'm in
- a rarity even today. Yvette's breezy, yet to-the-point
style really helps too." - Simon
Young, Auckland, New Zealand.

I get around to it eventually. I appreciate what you
are doing for us & I can learn something from this
site, with all the tips you give. Keep up the good
work." - Bazza, Qld, Australia.
"My husband and I never miss reading your newsletter.
We have been receiving it since its conception. You
are consistent and reliable. We love your clever,
concise, helpful, colourful style. You have a way
with words that puts everything 'in a netshell' beautifully.
Your captions at the end of each site never fail to
raise a smile or prompt a thoughtful moment. Keep
up the good work. You brighten up a couple of oldtimers'
days." - M & B.

"I am an aged pensioner  and I regularly listen
to you on Monday nights, sitting in my car waiting
for my handicapped daughter to finish her band practice,
So I joined your mailing list and enjoy reading the
newsletter...I like to learn more about computers
and internet ao I can teach my daughter. I can't think
of anything you could do to improve your style but
I did want to let you know that there are probably
a lot of people out here who like to read your newsletter
but are unable to contribute anything to it." - Keith
Devantier, Nundah, Australia.
