For more than 25 years WServerNews has gone out each week to almost 200,000 IT pro subscribers worldwide! But now we’re hitting the pause button…

Unfortunately because of factors outside our control we have to hit the pause button on your favorite newsletter. We don’t know when or if we’ll be back, but in the meantime you can stay in touch with all the latest tech news and find tons of helpful guides on different IT topics on the TechGenix website.
For readers who have been enjoying our links to fun videos you can watch these on Flixxy.
And if you’ve been enjoying our offbeat humor lately, we’ve included below in this issue an expanded And Finally section.
Anyways, live long and prosper everyone!
Until we return.
