Welcome back to The Post... and to h2g2 itself!

This is the first edition of The Post to appear under the auspices of the new BBC/h2g2 banner.

We hope that you will bear with us as we try to find our new role in this ever-expanding community which is h2g2.

You may notice a few changes, hopefully for the better, which have been essential for the smooth running of this publication. The first, probably most noticeable change, is the inclusion of new graphics. We are indebted to Amy the Ant for designing, at very short notice, the wonderful new 'fish' gifs for our own, exclusive use in The Post.
If you like her 'new-look' graphics, please do drop a message in to us to say so!

The loss of h2g2, and it's return as a part of BBC online, affected all of us in different ways. We have quite a few articles in this edition highlighting the various feelings and worries of the 'hard core' of the old h2g2 community. Fragilis examines most of the changes in her 'View at h2g2'.

The recent outbreak of 'Foot and Mouth' disease is also a tricky subject which is given full coverage.

On the positive side, The Post is pleased to announce the arrival of what/whom has been dubbed 'The Wowbagglet'! Yes... the Post's wonderful cartoonist is the proud father of Lachlan Thomas O'Conner... a welcome new addition to the h2g2 family!

There are no classified advertisments or announcements in this issue, for obvious reasons, but this feature of The Post will return in the very near future.

Any copy, articles, suggestions should be sent to The Editor. Please use this same address if you are interested in volunteering to become a regular contributor.
