1) You may recall that the last issue of SR was late; the issue we did after my move from California to Mexico. Since that one went out late, this one got started late.

2) The first week in October we were touched by the outer edge of a tropical storm. She blew out the electricity in Rosarito—not in the whole town, just in our neighborhood.

3) She blew out my fax and my telephone answering machine. The telephone went too, along with my connection to the Internet but that was fixed within 24 hours. The telephone company here has proven to be very stable.

4) My printer chose this time to begin to malfunction. Nothing to do with the storm. The “driver” went out, and no matter what I try I have been unable to get my hands on a new one. I don’t even know why.

5) Trying to get small electronic machines repaired in a small Mexican town is an adventure. I have spent 10 days on it so far, and I’m still counting. That’s the briefest outline of the full, complicated, frustrating but learning-rich story I can give.

We’ll play catch up on our schedule over the next couple issues.

Please check your records. If you contributed to CODOH or Smith's Report between 1 March and 1 August 1996, and have not contributed since, your time has come. We are going to work out a “trailing” program so that everyone is notified automatically when a contribution is due, just like real newsletter publishers do it, but we still have not gotten it done. Please help me out here!
