Subject:     Update


Dear Subscribers,


My apologies for the problems we have been having. They have been due to a series of medical and technical issues. The good news is that all of the technical problems have been resolved.


During the summer SHAKSPER was mounted on a new server. Ever since then, I have had problems with the send message function. Late last week, those issues were resolved, and I now am able to send 5,000 Newsletters a day with my paid Google service. 


Five or six weeks ago, I had nerve surgery. There were complications this time. Friday, I had another surgery to address them. The treatment is on-going and will not be resolved for some months. I recently stopped taking pain medications and my head is much clearer. So with the technical problems solved and a clear head I proceed.


I am sending this Newsletter as a means to explain what has been going on. I am now getting to the over a month’s worth of submissions: some of them were time-sensitive, and I have missed the deadlines for them, my apologies to the submitters. I will catch up with reasonably-sized Newsletters as fast as I am able.


Please no personal e-mails to me. A long time ago, I gave up taking anything personally, good Western Buddhist that I am. Otherwise, I might be tempted to think the universe had it in for me.


Thanks for your patience,
