We are still alive! Albeit, just barely, in my case – I came down with the flu last week in the middle of finishing up the last of the group pipes, and am still slogging along with intermittent fever, sore throat, cough, and general blah. I realize the blog has been awfully silent for a long time, and I hope to redress that in the weeks to come. For now, I’ll hop through a few quick news items:

* The group pipes are done! Those, and various other side projects, have kept me busy for the last month or more, and I look forward to working on some very different pipe ideas now. As of today, the discount deal for the group pipe shapes is ended. I had a good time making them, but it’s going to be a while before I want to do any more of these shapes again!

* October is upon us, and this means Goblins…. Yes, Goblin fans may want to start checking the site regularly, starting next week. The little beasties will be running wild for the next month…

* The other day, our mailing list software apparently did a mass clean & purge of expired email addresses – I received an email that a large number of emails had been removed from the list due to excessive bounces or delivery failures. Shortly thereafter, I began to receive some inquiries from worried folks who had received notice that they had been unsubscribed from our email list. If you have received such a notice, your email was removed from the mailing list – probably your ISP has been filtering or bouncing the list emails as suspect spam, or perhaps there are other reasons. If you want to continue to receive our email notices, let me know by email so that I can re-add you to the mailing list if needed.

Look for new pipes on the website soon! Finally!
