Issue 90

I know that you're waiting for it. Its almost ready. Rob Wynne was up half the night last night fixing the server problem at Aphelion's ISP that caused the Lettercol to vanish Monday & Tuesday. He'll do us a cover tomorrow and I'll upload the new issue sometime after I get home from work.<br>Thank you for being patient. And please thank Rob Wynne for bringing the Lettercol back online. <br>Dan<br>

Re: Issue 90

I sneaked in the back door of the March issue and found that my story, Doyen and Ogema, is currently displayed in a font size of roughly 300. I know you guys love me, but wow ;-)<br><br><br>-- david j.

I tried to fix it, but nothing happened. Jeff will have to re-format it, and send me another copy to upload. Sorry.<br>Dan<br>

<br>Dan/Jeff<br><br>I just uploaded a corrected version of Doyen Ogama -- loaded it into Notepad, changed font size tags (which seemed to be in there for every paragraph!) from 120pt to 12.0pt. At least you can see more than two or three words per screen now ...<br><br>Robert M.<br><br>

Don't look, Jaimie... You're not married yet!


My wife thanks you, Rob. My constant wandering around the house and getting in her way, my tinkering with things that worked just fine, and my trying to keep control of the remote was not appreciated.

(Ah, now back again to the bliss that is marriage.)

Ok, you can look again, Jaimie...
<br><br><br>Unfortunately (or is fortunately?), I'm part of the liberal mindset, so I've been living in sin with my fiance for a while. We have our routines already in place. I'm not griping though, since I'm very blessed that she's actually quite supportive of my writing. In fact, she keeps bugging me to complete my second novel. I've read of horror stories when a significant other is not supportive. I am very thankful not to be in that situation. I keep that in mind when she nags me. :)

Re: Issue 90

When I update the back issues page (usually every 3 issues or so) I always include the link for the latest issue that I'm through with. If that happens to be the working copy for a late issue, I look at it as a bonus for the perceptive readership.<br>I haven't heard from Rob Wynne in a couple of days, so I'm going to assume that the server problems were just the tip of an iceberg of trouble down at Aphelion's ISP. I'm going to go ahead and upload the March issue, sans-cover. I'm assuming that Rob will do a cover for us as soon as he can.<br>OK, its done. The March '05 issue is online.<br>Dan<br>
