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.
FE, Enjoy your time in New York and remember me to Boston when you overfly on your way home. I lived there for 4 years and grew to love it. Before that I used to travel to North America about 8 times per year and East Asia about 6 per year. Did that for 20 years. Sounds great, doesn't it, until you try it. Anyway, my family's orders are for Dunkin Donuts coffee and some decent cheesecake, and my wife keeps muttering about "a little something from Tiffany's".
