Thanksgiving was fun, no? Having got our fill of turkey and family, we're settling back in to a regular publishing schedule. The December issue is at the printer and the fact that it's a double issue allows us to catch our collective breath for a moment and address some reader concerns about the current incarnation of this website.

First, several readers complained that the font sizes were too small. We bumped the normal font sizes up all around and then decided to make the text size of the articles variable. Hope that did the trick.

Second, we continue to receive queries about how people can become "members" to access the archives. The wording is unfortunate and will be changed soon. What it's supposed to say is that only subscribers can access the electronic archives of the print magazine, and even that would be premature. As of yet, we do not have a digital archive of the print mag on the web. (It's in the offing but may take a bit.)
