The Coastguard Cutter Rebooted Some of you may remember The Coastguard Cutter, our newsletter that ran from 2003 to 2009. At it's height it had a couple of hundred subscribers. Unfortunately, due to the workload involved it was eventually shut down.
However, I'm delighted to inform you that Tony has decided to reboot it. It will no longer be sent as an email but more as a mini-magazine here on the site. It's going to be posted via our (much unused) news system. Each volume will be posted in it's own news category.
Each new edition will be displayed on the front page as well as in the general news list. Feel free to comment your thoughts.
