Announcements

Protonmail.com under hacker attack for last 36hrs:  Incoming emails to me are arriving, but may be delayed or unavailable to me during these intermittent  attacks. Until this is corrected, please try to make submissions before 12 noon if you want to be more confident I can post them the next day. If you submit after noon but before 4pm, and your submission does not appear, please wait and see if it is included the following day before emailing me about it. Today’s issue is smaller than usual for this reason. Protonmail is working on the problem. Somebody out there doesn’t like protonmail providing a secure unfiltered untracked service.
