I have been looking forward to a newsletter but have not received one yet. How often can one be expected? (Or is something wrong with my subscription)?

I haven't recieved one yet, either. Of course, I haven't been a member very long-only since the beginning of August/end of July, I think. <br /><br />Keesa

I only received one, and that was back in May. I suspect that it's a matter of finding content, or, more specifically, people to create content!<br /><br />Kilmeny

That would make sense. <br /><br />By the way, Jeff, I'm keeping track of what works for me, in learning Latin, as you suggested. When I finally learn enough to write a tutorial, I'll be ready! ;D<br /><br />Keesa

Don't misunderstand me, I was not being impatient or pushy but since I have not had one yet, I did not know if something was amiss with my subscription status. It was promised that the next newsletter had a good New Testament Greek content, I didn't want to miss it.<br />Thanks

What Bert was really trying to say was... "Take your time, but hurry up!" ;)
