My apologies

  Forum Editor 21:23 17 Feb 2006

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.

Thanks for your patience.

What you need is a deputy to travel to do all the onerous stuff like travelling around the world in your stead:o)

I take it you're available?

I assure you it becomes very tedious after a while.

  Big Elf 21:33 17 Feb 2006

Unfortunately not. I've done a (very little) of what you do and would struggle to cope. I am only a human being not a Superman.

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.

Bet on it?

you were here? :o)

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.

No snow, but extremely cold here. High winds make it even worse. Roll on Monday, and a cosy 747 home.

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.
