[Editor’s Note: Below are three separate announcements about the ShaLT project. I did not receive the first two of these sent after the last ShaLT message I received from Dr. Egan and distributed on September 3rd. Only today did I determine that I have not been getting submissions from Gabriel Egan. Since we have been doing some maintenance during this period, something may very well be not working properly on my side. Do check and if you have sent me something that you have not seen posted in Newsletters since August 29, 2013, please resend that message to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . {For long-time SHAKSPER subscribers and others, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it has not been used since the major SHAKSPER upgrade so PLEASE DO NOT send submissions to that address.} If you have sent something and have not seen it, also please send me a note at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to alert me. I will try to find out what has been going on and whether the problem is just with Dr. Egan’s or more subscribers. –Hardy M. Cook, Editor]
