Dear Jennifer Thank you for

Dear Jennifer

Thank you for the mail and assignments, the reading material is quite informative. But I just wanted to ask you a question, I just recieved your mail and in the writing assignments one the deadline given is 16th May,2009 and it is already 10th of June. So I am wondering whether this is a typing mistake or I received an email very late?? So could you please help me with this


The bio is due JUNE 16th, not May. See my comment to Gertrude. :-)

Let me know if you have other questions!

Due when

Hi Jennifer
Is the assignement due on the 16th of May or the 16th of June?

June, of course!

Believe it or not, I have several people read all web content before I post it! It is amazing how easy it is to miss the most obvious of errors! I didn't even catch Lanjana's reference to May.

LOL! (laughing out loud!)

looking for Liba

Hi Jennifer! I guess I'm still finding my way through all these. Can you help me locate Liba from the list of the VOF's email address that you sent . We are supposed to pair together for the first assignment but i could not find her email add . Was she using the different name? I have already communicated to her yesterday through her pulsewire site yesterday. I haven't heard from her yet. I'm just taking this option just in case she was unable to get my message. Many thanks!
