About a month after my meeting with OotB President Mark Alan Osterhaus at GenCon 2005 I got restless and sent the following e-mail on September 23:
Hiya! I just had two questions:Two weeks later on October 7th I finally got my answer:
1) Will I be told if you guys don't want to publish it, or just hear nothing?
2) In either case, roughly when should I expect an answer by?

MichaelSo there you have it. It was the closest I'd come so far and yet I'd failed. After a brief sobering period (metaphorically speaking as I don't drink alcohol, though I was tempted to start that day), I would pick up with Mayfair.
Unfortunately PROGRAMMER did not make the cut in our September Product Development Meetings. It is being returned via Priority Mail.
Thanks again for the opportunity.
