Site Update - Live Chat Now Available !!

Hey Everyone,This is just a brief note to inform everyone that we have now created a new chat room (a special thanks to Gav !!) which we hope you will all use ... For those of you who are unfamilar with chat rooms, it is a great way to meet people from around the world by having a "real time" conversation with them... You can talk about all sorts of various subjects or simpy view the online discussion... I would like to invite all of you to use this feature which I believe is a great way to connect with people from around the world...Thanks again to Gav as this would not have been possible without his hard work and dedication...Sincerely,JonoThe Mittelholzer Foundationhttp://www.mittelholzer.org

Blogger Status

Saturday, March 18, 2006

A clarification about the filer we restored yesterday: This machine is indeed up and functioning again, so the affected blogs are no longer entirely inaccessible. However, it is still not in great shape and we are in the process of moving all the data off of it and on to better machines. So over the next few days there may still be lingering and intermittent problems for some blogs. This includes the "forbidden" errors we're all getting tired of, as well as occasional publishing errors, or incompletely published pages. If you get an error viewing a blog, refreshing the page once or twice should clear it. For publishing problems, simply wait a few minutes and republish, and that should take care of it. Thanks for your patience while we work on clearing all this up.

Please help...


On behalf of a UWI graduate student who is studying the poetic works of Martin Carter we are attempting to obtain either an actual copy or photocopy of Kyk-Over-Al (June 2000) edition which is a 411-page tribute to the Guyanese poet. Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated as we are under time constraints and need any help or advice as soon as possible. Thank-you for your time and I eagerly await your replies ...

Sincerely,

Jonathan Bratt

A novel is not, after all, a historical document, but a way to travel through the human heart.
