Vol. 14, no. 13


With this issue, I am suspending the publication of the newsletter for an indefinite period of time. I don't know when I will come back at it. There are some changes in my life and I need to focus on them.


Avec ce numéro, je suspends la publication du bulletin de nouvelles pour une période de temps indéterminé. Je ne sais pas quand j'y reviendrai. Il y a quelques changements dans ma vie et je dois m'y consacrer.
