It's Official

I feel a little bit like Steve Martin in The Jerk -- you know, that scene where he first sees his name in the phone book? -- because we received our International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) from the Library of Congress. (The Library administers the program in the US, but it is, as the name implies, an identifier that's recognized worldwide.) It's a minor thing that happens automatically if you apply, but it's still kinda cool to be official.

We are now officially ISSN 1946-1712.

(Flash prompt for you writers out there: read the two four-digit components as the birth and death dates of a time-traveling protagonist, born 1946 and died 1712.)

If any other 'zines are wondering how long it takes, they received my application on 11/20/2008, and I received the response this morning, 2/7/2009.

Cool. You're legit, and even your ISSN has a plot.
