From Full Unit Hookup‘s news page, dated 08/26/2006:
My computer crashed this week and unfortunately the FUHU submission log file was corrupted. This disaster doesn’t mean I’ve lost all submissions to FUHU. What it does mean is that I’ll have to rebuild the the tracking file I use to record all FUHU submission activity, which means longer response times. (Even though I keep monthly backups of all FUHU files, the submission file can change daily.) Sorry, folks.
Yeah, this sounds like a bad time to query. It also explains why they’ve had my story 79 days, which is long for them. Darn, and I was hoping it was because they loved me.
