Question about the OCaml Journal:
If you order the 3month subscription, it says you get access to all existing articles + 6 new articles. After the 3 months is up, can you still access these articles? Are they PDFs or are they only readable from your secure site?

You can only read the articles from the site while your subscription is active.

You can download them (and the code + videos) of course.
