In England’s Middle Ages, men convicted of high treason were “drawn by horse to the place of execution, where they were hanged (almost to the point of death), emasculated, disembowelled, beheaded and quartered (chopped into four pieces)”. (The article,,_drawn_and_quartered, is fascinating in its detail!).

I mention this only to give myself a healthy perspective on this very unusual week…

I’m currently under high pressure to take care of several unrelated things, from fixing our error reporting system (the server had problems); to putting systems in place to gather information from surveys, polls and other feedback so we can prioritise what everyone in the community is asking for; to fixing the critical bugs a few of you have been kind enough to report; to finally being able to get back to doing what I love doing most: delivering actual ActiveInbox improvements 🙂

The impact of this is that there will probably not be another interesting release until next week, although there may be a minor bug fixing release in a couple of days, and I won’t be appearing much on the support forum. But fear not! Lisa is expertly and warmly answering all of you, and letting me know if anything needs urgently taking care of!
