    Some of you who are opted-in for email updates received this earlier or are about to receive it via email. I had a hiccup with the first batch of newsletters due to a formatting issue and I didn't notice until over half the mail queue was processed. I fixed my tired-eyed mid morning error and resent. Apologies if you got two emails. The good news is, I never really send these things so don't expect any more until another 3, 4 or 5 months.

    For reference, I've included a copy of the email below for those who have not opted in to email updates. It's essentially just an announcement of our current contest and the article bounty program which will soon be fired up.

    Well, until next time...

    Also, it's Martin's birthday. I guess I could have mentioned that in the newsletter. Sorry @MartinD, you old goat.

    Glad to see this here, since I don't regularly read emails...

    Happy B-day @MartinD, give thanks to your parents!

    I feel special because I got 3 emails, not 2 :)

    Well you are special.

    Emails aren't very often around here... so saved the dupes for later :)

    3 emails?  Had to be a "cluster error".

    I only got 2 so I'm obviously not part of the special group. :(

    But it has paragraphs...

    For future reference, all written communications should have a maximum of 140 characters and contain at least 1 meme.

    Regardless of how many you received, I think we can all agree on that I need to find a better platform than IPB for sending these...
