Jim Duncan and other readers have reported the appearance of an odd-looking character in their E-Sylum issues, but they weren't referring to my picture. This is a known problem that should be corrected in the current issue. To prevent these I regularly substitute tricky characters like slanted single and double quote characters with simple straight ones. But two weeks ago something happened to my replacement process and some of the crazy characters were sneaking through.
Bounced message email
And no one else has reported this, but some of you have been seeing email messages like this one I'm been getting:
Your membership in the mailing list Esylum has been disabled due to excessive bounces The last bounce received from you was dated 11-Feb-2010. You will not get any more messages from this list until you re-enable your membership. You will receive 2 more reminders like this before your membership in the list is deleted.

These are legitimate emails, but if you get one, DON'T visit the confirmation page - it won't work. It's a known bug that the Binhost people are aware of, and it should go away with the next upgrade of the mailing system. Instead, use one of the other two methods to refresh your subscription.
