Checking in on Leading Edge
« on: November 25, 2006, 11:55:02 PM »
Hey, I was just checking out Leading Edge's web page to see if Issue 52 is out yet. The page appears to have vanished. Does anyone know if this is just a technical quirk, or if something more serious is afoot? When I moved in June, I was pretty sure the account was good until at least March 2007 or so, and it's been down for over a week now.

Thanks.

I don't know about the website, but I did get the most recent issue in the mail a few weeks ago.

Well, that answers the most important question. Time to get them my new address and start a subscription, then.

I've heard some weird things about TLE, but I won't talk about them here because thus far they are still unsubstantiated rumor.  If you're interested in unsubstantiated rumor, you could send me an email and I'll tell you what I heard, but I have no proof at all that it's true and am rather inclined to think myself that it isn't.  (Though, that may just be my hopeful side coming through.)

How's that for taunting you all.

Well then. Guess we now need a followup phone call. I'm all about unsubstantiated rumors. ;)

Well, I can't help answer the question about the Web site (although I emailed one of the editors to find out), since I'm no longer a staff member (ending after this latest issue), but MsFish, if you want to have your rumors substantiated, you can email me. PM me if you no longer have my email address.

EDIT: Got response back from one of the editors. He said they're changing servers and the site should be up by the end of the week.

A likely story. Just what the Aryan-reptilian elite would have us beleive.
