Newsletter readers, an apology: I was putting the finishing touches to this week’s email when the Googlemail server (which I run the website email addresses on) crashed on me, and it’s not coming back up. It’s now 2:30 in the morning, so rather annoyingly, given the weekend we’ve got ahead of us, there won’t be any newsletter this week. Normal service will be resumed next Wednesday or Thursday. Sorry again.
Visitors who weren’t aware there was a newsletter, or just hadn’t got round to signing up yet, can start receiving a weekly update of the site’s main posts, as well as one or two little bits that don’t get mentioned on here, each Wednesday or Thursday night, by sending a blank email to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘subscribe’ in the subject line.
