In future I plan to send out these newsletters in the first week of every month, as long as my stamina lasts. This means that the next, much longer, newsletter will follow fairly soon. Obviously I'd also be grateful for any feedback you may want to give.

For those of you who find this bare bones list a bit tedious compared to previous more chatty newsletters, I plan to revive those as well, but on a quarterly basis.
