Well, to be honest: I subscribed to that tournament, along with three
of my friends. I was only because of family circumstances that my wife
and I had to cancel this trip at the very last moment. The three other
members of our Golden Dragon Club did participate.
The info about the championship was published on the website of the
Federazione Italiana Mah-Jongg (www.fimj.it). Besides, I have a good
contact with its president, Marco Mordenti. Just six months earlier, we
had a training session about the OEMC-rules at the Kong's club (Forlì).

Great update. Here are some comments:
(1) In spite of what the Chinese/Japanese called them, the two
"Chinese Official Rules" (or "Official International Rules" in English
and Japanese) are not the complete rules, they were only the scoring
summary.
(2) It would be a lot better if the readers don't have to tilt their
heads (or their computer monitors) 90-degrees to read the text.

Great work, as usual. Thanks.

Agreed. Perhaps the JMOC will publish a new version; I do hope this
will happen well before the OEMC.

You mean the text is too small? I try to make it as readable for any
browser, so I am a bit surprised. Can more NG-members give me some
feedback, please?

Thanks. I am a bit proud of the John O'Connor-movie ;-) Finally
editing the footage I shot in Tokyo 2002...

I haven't been all through the whole thing, but I didn't see anything
rotated 90 degrees...

New site organization looks great, Martin. My site needs an overhaul too.
Someday...

Hmmmm... I tried it on several computer and it always come out rotated
90-degrees by default (heading on the left). But then all the
computers were running Windows with the MS Internet Explorer. I have
to manually rotate them with the Acrobat reader. No big deal, just a
little unexpected. Readability is not a problem because one can
always zoom in with Acrobat.

I believe what Dee meant was the Complete English rulebook in Adobe Acrobat
file, URL:
http://www.mahjongnews.com/pdf/Official%20International...
It is linked from the "How to play..." page
(http://www.mahjongnews.com/chineseofficial.htm). Other PDF files for Part
1, Part 2, etc., on this page are horizontally displayed. And all HTML pages
I visited look OK.

Hi Martin, congratulations to your redone site! I have had a quick tour of
the site with this quick comment to make (hope you don't mind receiving it
via this public NG ^_^):

Since your site is about mahjong news, it would be much helpful for readers
if you provide a list of all archived articles. I mean a *list* that
displays the titles/topics of articles, in comparison to your existing
"Search" section.

Keep up your work!

Yes, I see, that's rotated 90 degrees. I imagine Martin didn't mean for it
to be read on the computer screen, but rather it's laid out this way to
facilitate printing.

Tom is right: it's fit to print.
Thanks for all the feedback, esp. the idea of some archive is great
(thanks Cofa ;-)
Of course some items will return, esp. the section with the rules. But
the general idea is to go back to the roots: being a *newspaper* about
mahjong on the internet. So the website shall have more actualities,
while the older pieces will disappear after a given time. After all,
we don't have Tom's FAQ's for nothing (~_^)

But you can have it both ways. Your pages are set to fit portrait
mode printing, so the contents are rotated to fit the page. But if
you set the paper orientation to landscape, then you can have it be
both readable on the screen AND be able to print them out on paper.
There is no reason to restrict yourself to portrait mode paper
orientation.

But it is not necessary because the program will actually do this for you -
see also below...

I have viewed and printed files with both horizontal and vertical pages in
the same documents. When I need the pages printed they will come out the
same way it was created. No setup is needed before printing. (By the way, I
use Adobe Acrobat 5.0.5 under Windows 98.)

Martin, all you need is time to rotate those pages and post it back again, I
believe ^_^

Time, that exactly what I am running out of... But it's on my ToDo
