We have at the moment an extremely heavy work load. This is not related to the Cactus-Mall and web work but is coming from the other side of our business, that of printing. We cannot in our present poor financial position afford to turn away any business.
Problems with the project
I have written here and in other places about the project to develop our property, move and solve our financial problems. Unfortunately the current shambles in the UK property market is severely impacting this project. It may still go ahead but the financial advantage from what is going to be an enormous amount of disruption and work is being severely eroded.
It is now looking increasingly unlikely that we we will be able to go to the CSSA convention in Tucson in 2009.
Server spam load
The server cactus-mall.net is experiencing exceptionally high loads of incoming Spam - about 2.5 times the avergae amount for the last 2-3 months. Whilst this is not currently causing problems it would be helpful is any users with stored mailboxes on the server clean them out regularly and don't let junk accumulate.
This Blog will note updates to the Cactus-Mall and other related websites like the British Cactus and Succulent Society and the Mesemb Study Group.
I will give my thoughts on the current state of the Cactus and Succulent hobby and discuss topical subjects which I think need airing.
I hope it can be used by others to give us feedback on the development of the now 10 years old Cactus-Mall and what you think of its usefulness and ways in which we might improve this.
