Rant Of The Day THIS RANT 24/12/97

Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.

Just another year

Blimey, it's Christmas Eve! The entire year appears to have raced past in an ill-considered flourish and I still haven't finished wrapping all the presents. But since even magazine editors get to be self-indulgent in their last column for the year while Gusworld is an exercise in self-indulgence all the time, I may as well do all the conventional stuff.

It's been a pretty good year Gusworld-wise; my only real complaint is that in the last two months, work-related issues have destroyed my leisure time and hence minimised the amount of content going up. For this, my apologies. Hopefully 1998 will be better.

This isn't the Oscars, but I would like to thank all the readers who emailed me during the year, and apologise to those I never replied to. It never ceases to astound me just how much mail this site generates. Next year, I'll probably introduce a letterbox column in order to keep up.

Of course, I also need to thank all the members of the Gusworld editorial board: Spanky, all the Keatons (Alex, Mallory, Andrew, Jennifer and Steven), Norb, and all the other semi-anonymous contributors. Without them, we'd never maintain such a high level of triviality. I'd also like to thank Joe Queenan, just for being there.

But enough gush. Gusworld is now on an enforced break until late January, when we will return with a funky new interface and all your favourites. In the meantime, have a spiffing Christmas, a sloshed New Year and I hope you get loads (of presents).
