#24 mailing list announcement

Apologies to everyone looking for a #24 announcement; I just found out about six hours ago that our host failed to send the announcement because of a server error. Yeah, that’s what I get for not checking my email for about half a week. ;)

Anyways, I’ve sent out a copy of the usual mailing list announcement to all of you subscribed readers–just about a week late. Sorry!

Digg! Digg damn you!

32x32-digg-guyThank you to all the people who are voting for us on Digg, but we need more votes. Within 24hrs, we’ve had nearly 2,000 downloads, but less than fifty Diggs, that means only one in forty is voting. It’s even less on Reddit and SlashDot! As I write this, Robert is in tears and threatening to do evil things to kittens and puppies.

The more votes we get on Digg/Reddit/Slashdot, the more exposure we can get for Full Circle magazine. The more exposure we get, the more new readers, and possibly converts, we get. So come on people, vote! VOTE!

So, no excuses, here’s the links:
