I got the work thingy straightened out this morning after a couple of emails with my supervisor. It turns out that they had a temporary rule that we had to send all blanks to the editors, but now it is back to what it was before, anything more than 3, which will pretty much totally eliminate my need to send anything to them. I am relieved. I know this doesn't mean anything to anyone, but since I whined about it earlier I thought it would be a good idea to update it. Back to life as usual.
