The "Dom" being the affectionate local name for Wellington's newspaper, the Dominion Post. Apparently, the problem was computer failure. Is this a sign of times to come?
Along with thousands of other subscribers, I received an apology (sent twice, presumably by the same computer), which has a certain amount of tongue-in-cheek humour, worth recording.
Meantime, I can't wait for tomorrow's edition!
We again apologise that we were unable to publish Tuesday's Dominion Post due to major technical issues. We have received a mountain of feedback and it is clear that the DomPost remains very much an essential part of our readers daily lives. Our readers have expressed a wide ranging number of concerns, from how they will be able to go about their daily lives without their usual puzzles and crosswords fix, to whether we will be putting out a TV Week.
We again apologise for any inconvenience and trust that
Wednesday's bumper issue will help you soon forget,
and catch up on all your usual DomPost favourites.
