And Royal Mail's pedalo hasn't made it across the Irish Sea either.
I have been reading it on my really old iPad mini - I think I'm converted.
I'm tempted to buy a newer iPad, but can't decide on another mini, or go for the standard size though....

I would have thought a staff member, especially one who mans the forum so diligently, would have his copy delivered personally by dispatch rider. :D

Mine finally arrived yesterday afternoon.

Bumped into a local postman on a walk & he said there is a massive backlog off stuff due to the parcel side of things being overwhelmed by demand

So, here's the official reason for the delay in magazines reaching subscribers this month.

It's not a north-south divide as the mag is dispatched from Lincolnshire.
We have investigated the delay and the post office tell us it's a resource problem due to less people working in the sorting offices as they respect the workplace social distancing rules. This slowdown is affecting all post regardless of where you may be located. And, it's only going to get worse with postal volumes on the increase as we head toward Christmas.

Thankfully, as a subscriber you can log in and go to My Account and dive into the Download section where you can grab the latest issue and download a PDF to your device for offline reading.

Agreed, and for clarity, my posts were not a poke at Sound on Sound for the tardiness of delivery, I know it's the post office. The availability of the mag as PDF is appreciated too, thanks. :clap:

But, I do take a little bit of pleasure in the knowledge the magazine gets to Belfast before the magazine's Technical Editor's post box. :mrgreen:

I don't know. Apparently PW's arrived yesterday, but then he lives amongst the elite in Malvern so it was bound to arrive before mine, obviously...

Pretty shocking, though, for a two and a half week delay. It's not like it's a bulky parcel!

It could be that Hugh’s postman/woman has seen the article about his new upgraded studio and held on to his copy for a few weeks in a fit of jealousy. :lol:

Shall we start a sweepstake for when this month's copy comes through?
