I want to apologize to anyone who sent a greeting for Gianluca’s birthday, and it didn’t make it into the post. A couple of things happened…
First, there were so many comments, one post couldn’t hold them all, which I didn’t know would be a problem until the draft stopped saving/updating automatically, causing me to have to split the work I had already done into two posts. Second, I had to work through a spotty — and in some cases, completely lost — Wi-Fi connection with my internet carrier in the middle of all of this (going back and forth between e-mail and the website), and I thought that I had recovered all the missing comments when it came back up. Because of these difficulties, posting took nearly 6 1/2 hours….much longer than it normally would have…and I when I counted the number of comments at the end, I thought I had the correct number. I sincerely apologize.
That being said, it seems that the problems with people getting e-mails to us continues to be a problem, and I’m not sure, but I might have figured out the problem. I need a little more information to test my theory, so I’m asking for all of your help. If you have had trouble getting your e-mail through to us in the past:
Send an e-mail to us at firstname.lastname@example.org using the e-mail account that you use most often. Please put the word, “Testing,” in the subject line.
Comment below and let me know that I should be looking for an e-mail from you.
I will reach out to you to see when your e-mail is actually received, and work with you to figure out the individual issues if I haven’t. Thank you for helping me with this, and again, I apologize if your comment was left out of the birthday post.
P.S. ~ Some of the issues with posting included persistent formatting problems. Each individual comment is a different color, not necessarily spaced evenly, so please look again if you don’t immediately see your name. kyalpn
