    There may be good reasons you don't want to do this, but the wonderful accomodation listings on travelfish aren't much use when you arrive somewhere new and need somewhere to stay. OK, so you can sit in advance and write down the details of all the places you like the look of, but who has the time or patience for that? Not me, and what if the ones you write down are full?

    So, wouldn't it be cool if you could hit 'print' on a listings page and produce a condensed one or two page summary of all the places on it - names, phone numbers and star ratings will do.

    Hi Paul,

    Have you seen the efish? Log in to the member centre and you'll see the details for making your own guidebooks -- are they the type of thing you mean?

    I hadn't seen it and it is very very good - I'll look more carefully next time before I make such a sugggestion - but I'm in yet another SE asian internet cafe that didn't have acrobat installed. I've stuck the installer on my USB drive now but a plain text option would be nice....

    Some additional feedback - after passing my Pak Beng efish around on the boat from Huay Xai I did get a couple of people asking where I got it, did it cost anything and all that.

    It might be a good strategy to add a large 'printed free at www.travelfish.org' somewhere on each page!

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for the suggestion - and thanks for spreading the word about them -- much appreciated.

    We're working on an enhanced version of the efish at the moment -- if you want to help out with the testing of it, please see this thread -- the new version is starting with one for Siem Reap -- so if you're heading that way it may be useful -- we hope to have it ready for testing sometime this week.

    Thanks again
