first, year 1 subscriptions expire on august 31, 2016. that's next wednesday. if you are a year 1 subscriber and there are any puzzles you missed, you have until then to download them. after that, they'll be unavailable online.
after that, we're into year 2. you can subscribe here if you haven't done so already. in case you missed the announcement a few weeks ago, we're switching to an email list for distributing the puzzles in year 2. so you'll no longer have to come here to download the puzzles; instead, they'll just land in your inbox. the publication schedule will be the same: a new rows garden every tuesday, and a new variety puzzle every other monday.
i'm using google groups to manage the email lists. you don't need to have a google account or gmail address to join; any email address will do. i won't spam you and i won't give or sell your email address to anybody else. the lists will only be used to send out puzzles to subscribers. if you have any objection to google groups in particular, let me know and we'll work something out.
this website will continue to exist, but since i won't be posting here every week and it won't be used to distribute puzzles, i'm going to switch my webhosting to a lower-bandwidth plan. so if you come here next year, you'll notice that the site is slower to load. however, it'll still be functional, and if you prefer to use the online solver (for regular version rows garden puzzles and some variety types), that'll still be an option.
finally, to anybody who has subscribed for either year 1, year 2, or both: if you like these puzzles, tell a friend, or a family member, or a coworker. or everybody you know on facebook and twitter. :) and thank you for your continued support of outside the box puzzles!
