Sorry for the delay in getting today’s issue out, my internet went down in the middle of the night, probably due to maintenance on the server.

In order to save on data storage space I will be purging all pics (but not text) from issues before 2017. Keeping a complete archive going back 1 1/2 yrs is sufficient. If you want to save a pic from an older issue do it before 01 Sept.

The DigameXtra website Header Picture will be updated soon. Snow covered mountains just doesn’t seem appropriate in this heat!
