View Full Version : Newsletter - 04 August 03

August 26th, 2003, 09:20 AM

Its been 6 months since the last newsletter, so please accept my apologies to begin with. Sorry for the long gap, but have been extremely busy - graduating, getting a job, getting married, travelling around the country, and now, relocating. A reasonable excuse, you'd agree (or so I hope). :)

Am moving to New York this weekend - will be working with Lehman Brothers. Still trying to tie up things, so life is hectic, but expect it to get busier. :))

In the past few months, I have had a reduced involvement in the day to day running of Jatland.com. Anu Rana and Satyeshwar Singh (as also Subhachand ji) have been handling the members' area and other admin functions. A big thanks is due to them.

** Jatland.com Update **

* A server error causing problems with new registrations (27th Jul to 3rd Aug) has now been rectified. If you encounter any problem accessing the members' area or any other part of the site, please drop a line immediately to admin@jatland.com or support@jatland.com .

* The member area now has almost 1300 members, but the number of active members (Posts within the last 30 days), at just over 130, needs to go up. Please do login to the members' area and share your views.

* A number of back-end features have been added to the site to ensure ease of maintenance of the site. While few of these are 'visible', the site is much sturdier now.

* One of the most useful new features is the integrated chat ( http://www.jatland.com/chat/ ). Now a single login can be used to login to the member area, and the same username is automatically used for the chat. The member profile can be checked directly from chat. Try it today!!!

* The financial situation of the site is quite comfortable, with a current corpus of about USD 370. A new page now lists all the contributors to the site ( http://www.jatland.com/contributors.htm ).

* Please login and update your Profile so that people find it easy to search for you. Be sure to enter the country and your current location rather than your native place ( http://www.jatland.com/cgi-bin/ub/UltraBoard.cgi?action=ModifyProfile ).

* We need help in managing the site. If you can spare the time and have the enthu (and some techie orientation), do drop a line for taking on some moderator duties.

You will need to register/login to use the Member Directory Search feature. If you're not registered, do so now!!!

With warm regards
