    Quick question: I’ve had the magazine subscription for many years (unfortunately, I have yet to receive the Jan/Feb issue) – does that entitle me to the digital issue? If so how would I access it? Being a cantankerous old Luddite I much prefer the physical copy but digital is an acceptable backup in emergency situations like this.
