A college professor of mind told me a story years ago — OK … MANY years ago — about how solving one problem often creates another. Boy … did our switch from Feedburner to Mail Chimp subscriber software — not to mention my recent post about the change — gum up the subscriber works over here at Jetwhine HQ.
First let me apologize to all of you who tried to resubscribe in various attempts and were faced with our monkey screwing things up. It really wasn’t supposed to be this much work.
Our mail monkey has since been sent to his room without bananas to reconsider his behavior.
Seriously, our original goal was to be certain everyone from the old list made it on to the new one.
If you’d like to be sure where you stand and you’d rather not risk the wrath of the chimp, just send me an e-mail at email@example.com and I’ll check the details of your subscription myself. In the subject line, just add the word subscription and we’ll do the rest.
On the bright side of this mess though Scott and I were both really impressed by the incredible number of e-mails we received telling us how important your Jetwhine subscription is to you and how much you like what we write about GA, biz av, FAA, flight training and a host of other relevant issues.
And because you, our subscribers are just as important to us, please keep that firstname.lastname@example.org address handy and e-mail me directly if our chimp ever again fails to treat you with the respect you deserve.
