FMEO Plus Newsletter #1

The following is a reprint of an email sent to FMEO Plus members on May 10, 2013

Hello and Thank You for being a member of FMEO Plus!

I know this email has been a long time coming — and I’m incredibly sorry for the “radio silence” experienced on the show’s feed the past few weeks — but, we are definitely moving forward behind the scenes at FMEO HQ and there are some exciting changes coming that I really hope will get things back on track again!

It’s never fun when a podcast channel goes quiet like ours has, but I want to assure all of you that For Mac Eyes Only is still alive and we’ll be getting regular show content into your hands again very soon.

By the way, this email contains important info for setting up your FMEO Plus account, but if you no longer wish to receive these occasional emails from me, there’ll be no hard feelings, just reply to this message and let me know!

FMEO Plus has Launched!

Originally intended only to provide “extras” to FMEO Plus members, FMEO Plus is getting a slight rebranding, if you will, as the “educational branch of our Mac programming”.

The idea, however, remains the same: video, audio, PDFs, and so forth, but the primary focus will be on educational content for Mac users of all levels. (Maybe we’ll throw some pure “extras” in there as well. You never know!)

And this content will be exclusive to FMEO Plus members.

With that in mind, Barry and I shot some footage a few weeks back and the first fruits of our labors have been released to FMEO Plus members today (it’s uploading as I write this), so please be sure to follow the steps below to set up your FMEO Plus account so you can begin accessing this new content.

In the coming weeks and months additional segments in our Traveling Apple series will be released, Eric and I are planning a segment or two on Apple’s Motion and Final Cut Pro X, I’m working to schedule some studio time with a fellow FMEO Plus member from Wisconsin, and I’ll be creating a few listener Q&A segments as well.

In other words, I hope to have a little something for everyone in FMEO Plus … even if everything isn’t for everyone.

Or, something like that.

Creating Your Account

I’ve created a special sign up page for folks who’ve contributed to the show in some way — whether through a donation or otherwise — or maybe I just like you.  You’ll never know…. One thing you can be sure of, though, is that if you’re getting this email from me, this link is for you!

This special sign up page will provide you 365 days of access to FMEO Plus content from the point you create your account — regardless of when you first contributed.

Even if you’re a monthly subscriber, you’ll gain 365 days access to FMEO Plus from the point you create your account.

This “bonus” time is the least I can do to thank you for being an early adopter of FMEO Plus, and to offer you credit for the months when no “Plus” content was forth-coming.

To create your new FMEO Plus account, please visit:
{link expired}

Once there, fill out your name, email, create a username and password, and then click the button that reads “Create Account and Complete Your Purchase”.

Again, as long as you use the link above, the “purchase” is free and you will NOT be charged.

What if I already have an account?

Some of you getting this email may already have an account.  If so, I’ve already given you access to FMEO Plus so you should be good to go. However, if you’re having difficulties accessing your account, please let me know and I’ll get things working again for you.

Are there any restrictions on this FMEO Plus sign up page?

Well, only two really:

1) Please do not share this sign up link. The link is intended ONLY for folks who’ve previously contributed to the show. Unfortunately, the link will have to be shut down if there’s any abuse.

2) The link will expire automatically on June 16th, 2013 (or I’ll expire it earlier if everyone I send this to gets their account set up).  That will give you slightly over a month to create your account.  If by some chance you miss the sign-up window, please contact me and I’ll manually set up an account for you.

I’d Like to Thank the Academy…

I owe a TON to Gary, Eric, and Barry for all their ongoing support throughout the years, and their willingness to step forward and help wherever and however they can means the world to me.

That For Mac Eyes Only “the podcast” will continue to move forward, and that FMEO Plus content has now been released, is a huge testament to these three individuals and I can’t thank them enough.

If you get a chance, please send them a letter of thanks yourself.  They deserve it!

Until Next Time

Remember, I’m always here for any questions, so please feel free to write any time.

Enjoy and Thanks Again for all your support!
