I'm not on a break, theres just nothing to do whilst i wait for Andy to XML pass it - I've done XML, centering, large/small, and Forza has confirmed that the XML is good and pass worthy, im not on a break - just waiting for Andy.

Read closely, you shall see the light. 8-)




heehee... Thanks incan...
i knew you would see at least some of the foundry connections...

And yet, overall, i am dismayed by the lack of response to my prose... :-k

If not understood, then perhaps i should have written something more simple? :-s
And if it was not liked, then perhaps the foundry is too nice to critique? :-#
Or perhaps it was skipped over because there were too many words to read? #-o


I like the pretty picture.

The Newsletter is so dang big compared to the standard post that replies to it are rare, and mentions of specific sections are typically to point out gaffs by the staff. It gets viewed like crazy, but response isn't overwhelming.

It should be done shortly. We've waited 3 days for Andy to get us his intended Spotlight, but no word, so we're releasing without one.

Ah - might've know it was the monkeys fault!!! I guess you could ask one of the other CA's and they could escalate to a different admin?!
