Do not adjust your credit card…

An apparent brain bubble at our credit card processor caused all subscribers billed on the first of the month (today) to receive notices that their cards declined payment.

Please do not worry; there is no actual problem with your cards.

The bank’s computer apparently timed out trying to communicate with someone else’s system overnight, and all of today’s charge attempts failed. Our processing service is working on the problem, and have assured us they will straighten it out promptly.
