  • emails

  • I've been trying hard to catch up on my backlog of emails to be answered, but I'm not winning yet.  Over the past 8 days, I've spent 51 hours replying to emails and have sent 122 replies.  However, the number of emails still to be answered has increased from 374 to 388.

  • I've read all the emails as they have arrived, and hope to reply to them all eventually.  Meanwhile, if you are still waiting for a reply and your message to me was urgent, please email me to tell me - then I'll see if I can move your message up the queue.
