Feast or famine

It’s been quite a long process getting everything back up and running after the computer crash but I’m nearly there. However, I’ll be getting a new computer in the next week or so, and installing software etc will happen all over again, but at least I’ll have a robust machine to cope with all the design and graphics work I throw at it.

I’ve cleared the submissions box today, so if you’ve submitted something and not had a reply, it means yours was one of the victims of the computer crash. Please resubmit.

Computer crash

computer crash

My computer suffered a major disaster in the last week and while most things were backed up, there have, nevertheless, been some casualties. The most significant is the loss of emails, which means that submissions that were still waiting to be dealt with have been lost – and email addresses are gone. If you’re waiting on a response from a submission (beyond the automated acknowledgement), please resend. I apologise for the inconvenience.
