Off for a week — to Cuba!

Sorry for delays in emailings!

To anyone out there who belongs to the Collision Detection email list — you may have noticed that I’ve not emailed anything for the last two weeks. That’s because Yahoo Groups, where my list is hosted, has spazzed out and locked my account shut. Apparently my email address was bouncing for a while, so Yahoo’s native A.I. bots decided that I did not, in fact, exist … and was probably a spam artist.

I’m trying to get it fixed, which entails convincing the Yahoo server that I do, in fact, exist. This is amazingly harder than I’d expected. Worse, Yahoo doesn’t offer any tech support at all for their Groups. If I can’t fix this in the next 24 hours, I’ll just start a whole new Yahoo Group and put everyone who’s currently signed up on my new list.

We now return you to your regular programming.
