Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

A note to our readers

A note to our Observer readers

Saturday, we received the following email from our website host after our website had been down for three weeks:

The server has suffered a catastrophic failure. We have recovered the data, but due to our aging technology it will be an extended period before a suitable replacement server could be found, acquired and installed.

At this time, we are making the determination to cease operations at Linear Publishing after 25 years.

Sorry for the short notice, but technical difficulties have forced the issue. Please let us know where we can send you back up drive.

Thank you for your patience during our many years. If there was anything we could do to avoid this situation, we would not hesitite.  (sic)

Happy Holidays and prayers.

Gregory Wynne
