Delay in Production of Resurrection 69
Although Resurrection 69 has been completed and is available on this website
here, there has been a
problem over funding for the printed version.
As members will know, Resurrection has hitherto been paid for by the BCS.
Questions have arisen within the BCS as to whether this arrangement can be allowed
to continue and whether Resurrection ought not to be an exclusively
online publication as befits a society devoted to IT.
Rest assured that relevant members of the CCS committee are addressing this
problem as a matter of urgency and we hope to bring you a printed
Resurrection 69 in due course.
In the meanwhile, please bear with us.
