4. RECENT TECHNICAL ISSUES WITH BIZNET POSTS:
Hopefully the recent issues with formatting and erroneous posts are now behind us. Guess we'll find out when this post goes out today. :) It started with an unannounced upgrade by Google to their e-blogger tool which we use, which changed some default settings for formatting. Think we have that one figured out now. As to how it also resulted in an old post from January being sent again...don't know. That old post was regarding a request for proposals (RFP) by Bill Sumner. Please disregard that, as Bill did get what he needed. My apologies to Bill for any resulting hassles with inquiries on that.
Have a great week.
