to those of you who have emailed me over the past 12 hours or so, and have received no response.
I'm working from New York for a few days, and although I'm in the forum as usual - albeit from a different time-zone - and receiving your mail, it's just too fiddly to set up a sending facility from my hotel. So....until Wednesday of next week nobody will receive replies, although I'll continue to receive (and if necessary act upon) your messages.
My hotel overlooks Central park, and through my window I can see piles of snow dotted around - all that remain of the recent falls. It's been a warmish day here (48 degrees), but as I write it's 4:30 in the afternoon,and getting decidedly chilly.
I certainly wouldn't want anyone to hold back on the email - if you need to contact me please do so in the normal way. You'll just get no reply for a few days.
Mr Mistoffelees - it's not worth it for such a short while. I can send webmail from my business address, but that's separate from my IDG mail - I don't have webmail access to that.
I had some great cheesecake in a Broadway diner last night, and maybe a doughnut or two with the coffe today will help the work along. It's rather overcast and cold this morning, and I'm hoping there'll be no more snow.
but absolutely freezing in the wind. Went to Chinatown (shopping instructions from wife, don't ask) and was stopped by an NYPD cop just as I was about to jaywalk - he was around 18 stone, but bundled up in his winter gear he looked like a mountain with a gun on the side - you don't want to argue with these guys.
