Testing With Mushrooms Vol. 3

Nomadic Fungus
Mushrooms are amazingly well designed to maximize the dispersal of spores. Like sand on the beach, each of the delicate gills are covered in spores waiting for that slight breeze to lift them off and into the wide open world...

...And the NFI newsletter will also be propagating like mushrooms just as soon as we get all these MailChimp boxes checked off correctly.

Continued Testing With Mushrooms

Nomadic Fungus
In the virtual world of checked or uncheck boxes it's a simple click that stops the wheels of progress and keeps the presses from rolling.

Our unpaid, volunteer, technical novices are working hard to get the NFI feed switched over to MailChimp as quickly and smoothly as possible. In the meantime please enjoy yet another slightly tweaked photo of a shiitake mushroom.

Technical Update For NFI Newsletter

Nomadic Fungus
Over this last month the NFI staff have been focused on bringing the NFI newsletter distribution platform up to the 21st century. This process began with the realization that our old subscription management program was not functioning on a professional, consistent nor reliable manner. The next step was realizing that none of us had a clue as to what to do about it. Thus a month of research and cursing ensued.

This posting of a slightly tweaked common commercial shiitake mushroom is a test to see if all that damnation has paid off.
