    Don't listen to the rumor mill...

    Folks,

    I heard it from a good source today, who heard it from another publication that will go unnamed that Koi-Bito is going out of business. Well, that's news to me, and to be quite frank, we've never been in a stronger position that the one we're in now.

    As I said before, we've brought more people on board to work on the magazine, and that's not a sign of a business that's going downhill. We're also poised to make some major investments in new technology to improve online content delivery...again, not something that would be happening if the whole operation was going to go into mothballs.

    Anyway, things are getting on track again, and we are expanding, not shutting down. I can only guess where these things originate, and the motives behind them.:x If anyone has heard any information on the source, please feel free to contact me directly via e-mail.

    I know we've been off schedule for a while, but we are getting back to where we want to be. Believe me, if we ever do go out of business, the first person you'll hear it from will be me. :wink:
