Houston, we have a problem (this side of the pond anyway) – can anyone see today’s column?

A V Ramana RaoDecember 21st, 2020 at 2:54 pm

No, it appears blank. May be some technical glitch

John KnerlerDecember 21st, 2020 at 3:31 pm

No, it a new feature. It’s called “Do it yourself column”

Hi Iain, & AVRR,

Thanks for your heads up and late wake-up by me, but never fear, since my boss Judy, is now on it!

Judy Kay-WolffDecember 21st, 2020 at 4:16 pm

I have contacted three people who are in a position to check it out .. but have not received a response as yet.

Iain ClimieDecember 21st, 2020 at 4:34 pm

HI Bobby, Judy,

No panic, we’ll get there.


JudyDecember 21st, 2020 at 5:03 pm

Hi Iain. Thanks for your comforting words

Hi Everyone,
Judy has contacted three different people, all of whom have certain responsibilities to make sure the column, 2 weeks delayed, is up and running.
Though many hours have passed, we have not heard a word as to why and, more importantly, what may be in store for us.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it is just a glitch and can be solved. I'll keep in touch right here.

Reminds me of the ostrich coup…burying head in sand, and not seeing or paying attention-sometimes at the table one can draw a blank. Or may have something to do with planetary conjunction?

At a pich, would it be possible to cut and paste the column text into a blog comment adding the hands and bidding manually? Not ideal I agree but it might just work.

Hi Joe & Iain,

For many years we have depended on our team and they have never failed us, stuttered perhaps, but never abandoned us, leaving me to still search out a plausible way to find a successful solution.

Iain, we are following your advice, not panicking, and going through normal times, hoping to right the wrong.

Many apologies from me, but I’ll definitely keep in touch, right here on this specific site.
