Download a test eBook and give your feedback to Diesel eBooks
We've arranged to make available a "test" ebook that has DRM. Your feedback could help us with the development. Sorry, I know some of you don't like Adobe, but that's how it worked out. Anyway, if you get a moment, go to the site on your handheld, download the "test" ebook on the homepage and let me know what happens. If the PDA version doesn't come up, please also let us know. When you’re there, you’ll notice in the footer at the bottom of the page some light colored text that lists several different browsers. Can you please include that and your handheld type in the feedback. You can either post your feedback here or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks. We really appreciate your help.

Seems to be a dead link.. the .etd file is an XML file which points <bookfileurl> to a long url on lightningsource.com, which is DOA. No PDF at all at any of these sites.
So.. can you just attach the .pdf file here for review instead?
This is one problem that I'm seeing with many of these e-book sites... they partner with 1, 2, 3 other sites, and when one or two of them goes down, your whole experience is ruined, and you just end up going elsewhere, most-likely to a competitor.
If you can't fix EVERY link and EVERY resource, you should remove them or do something about them so users aren't burdoned with this kind of detective work. It gets exhausting.
Why not just host the .pdf yourself, on your own network, so you don't rely on someone else breaking THEIR pages/links/machines?

Diesil eBooks. I was just checking out your web page and I notice that on the main page at the very top under the tabs you have order info as one word. I was just trying to figure out what your reward points were and noticed it.
