Steven Collins has asked me to inform readers that a major systems failure at his ISP has crashed his email service. This crash affects many thousands of users and has not been fixed for five days. No estimate is yet available from the ISP regarding how long it will take to fix.

Please do not email Steven Collins until he posts that his email server is again functioning.

He apologizes to readers for the downtime but it is beyond his control. He will catch up on his backlogged emails and resume posting as quickly as possible once his email service is restored. Thank you for your patience.
