Hi all,

Just to let you know that I'm going to be away for most of the next two weeks, and David will be away from tomorrow until Monday. Ioa and Jennifer will be providing their usual superb support, and Lee will still be beavering away on the Windows version, but as they will all have more to get through in order to pick up the slack, it does mean that we may not be able to answer all queries as quickly as usual for the next fortnight. Also be aware that emails to contact@ and sales@ - which David handles - may not get replies until Tuesday or Wednesday, so if you need urgent help with something that you don't want to post on the forums, please use the support@ email address.

The reason for the absence, in case you're interested, is that I'm getting married this weekend, and David is my best man. We're all heading off tomorrow for a long wedding weekend, and then next week I'm off on a short honeymoon. Oh, and when I get back, I'm moving house - so, nothing too stressful, then. (The reason the honeymoon is going to be short, incidentally, is because we've done everything backwards and already have three kids, the youngest of whom can't really be left with grandparents for too long.)

So, when I get back, I will officially be a grown-up. But don't worry, I'll still be as grumpy as ever.

Keep your fingers crossed that the sun stays out for us - this is Cornwall, after all.

Thanks and all the best,
Keith

Good luck and congratulations. And don't worry, we'll keep the good Ship Scriv afloat while you're gone. Almost definitely.

Does this mean Scrivener is one of your bastard step-children?

But seriously--Congratulations and enjoy the well-deserved time away.

You're too young to get married.

I was thinking, "I thought KB was already married...," followed by, "Oh."

Nevertheless, Congratulations!

Congratulations Keith ... taken you long enough to make up your mind, eh?

All the best to you. Have a great — albeit curtailed — honeymoon*. And try to get some well earned rest! ;-)

* You're not having your honeymoon in Cornwall too, are you?

Edit: we'll = well ... I shouldn't carry on typing after midnight!

Many congratulations to you all!

Are you moving to someplace with a view of the sea? That would be nice. . . .

Hey, Keith--

Again--congratulations! I know you won't need this on your honeymoon, but when you come back you may want to take a look at it (knowing you live in Cornwall and studied Medieval Lit): "An Beybel Sans: The Holy Bible in Cornish" has just been published! More information can be found at: http://evertype.com/books/beybel.html

(P.S.--Why is BBCode off in this thread?)

It's always off when Keith posts an announcement. I'm not sure why. :)
