#1)  eNTS Magazine on Hiatus

Postby edfrank » Sat Oct 19, 2013 11:28 am

As many of you have noticed I have not put together an issue of the eNTS magazine since July.  The magazine is on hiatus.  I will try to get an issue out at the end of the year.  There is plenty of material, in fact almost too much, but compiling the issue is a problem for me at this time.

I am having some personal difficulties (no I am not ill) and as the situation deteriorates I am feeling more and more overwhelmed by even normal activities, let alone projects such as the magazine.  Instead of being driven to greater action to meet these goals, I am paralyzed into inaction.

I would like to ask anyone interested in the NTS organization to consider taking over the production of the eNTS magazine.  The new editor would determine format, frequency of publication, and select content.  I would help them post completed issues to the BBS and website.  I do not want to see the magazine idea abandoned completely.  I will put out an annual issue if nobody else tales on the task of editing the magazine as a more frequent periodical.

So please someone take over as editor of the eNTS Magazine.

Ed,

 We are very sorry to learn of your personal situation and wish you the best of luck. If there is anything we can do, please let us know. You have done so very, very much for NTS. The magazine can wait if nobody steps forward. We have plenty of material and plenty of activity on the BBS. No need to feel pressure on anything.

Hi Ed, sorry to hear about your situation. In the back of my mind I thought there might be something going on as I hadn't noticed you posting much lately here.

I have so much else going on that I regret to say I can't offer to help with the magazine project, but I hope someone else does.

Best wishes, and hang in there!

Ed-  I to hope you get better soon. You are so much a part of NTS and the Magazine has been fantastic. Someone can take in on but it will not be the same without you. I don't think I could to it. If I can help you in anyway please contact me.  Larry

Take care, Ed! There are more important issues about than producing a free zine for the members.
