Subject: New Year's Greetings
I wish everyone greetings for the New Year. SHAKSPER measures its years
of service based upon the calendar year, so we are now entering our
twenty-first year of service.
Apologies for the long hiatus. As many know, I have had many challenges
over the past five years. As it turns out, others keep rearing their
ugly heads to further complicate things, but I endure.
In addition, I was away for a week at the end of the year and returned
to 1,500 messages in my Inbox. Of course, 98% were the spam that members
do not see since this is a moderated list with many levels of security
so that only I can post and only from a limited number of machines.
Unfortunately, the major one had a bad hard drive in the RAID array,
causing me other problems to occupy my time. Then the large number of
messages simply was more than I could bear until now. Apologies.
I am back for the time being now. But it will take me some time to catch
up with all my correspondences.
