SaLuSa, September 14, 2011
Note from Luisa: to our surprise, the message that we received from Mike today, was a copy of the one of September 9. Luisa asked Mike what happened, and this was his reply:
Hi, Maria, I am confused as anyone else, I am coming to the conclusion that somehow I lost today’s message, as I cannot trace it anywhere. I seem to remember thinking I had put the wrong date on one and amending it, and I feel that is where I mixed it all up. I think it is best to forget today’s and let me resume as normal on Friday. I am really sorry for the confusion I have caused.
In the course of a separate email, Mike adds:
“I cannot of course let this opportunity go without apologising for the problems arising over Wednesday’s message. Yes, I may be going mad as files seem to vanish into thin air, and I am getting mixed up as to what is happening. I have written this Email twice and thought I had sent it out, but I cannot find it anywhere. So the next message will be on Friday. Mike Quinsey.”
I don’t think anything sinister has happened. It may be that Mike has a new machine and a new operating system and either a setting is off or an old procedure produces new and unintended results. More SaLuSa on Friday.
