I personally was on vacations. I had first wanted to release the Conlang
Journal on that date, but the organisation of the holidays and Real Life(TM)
didn't allow me to manage that.

Unfortunately not, Real Life(TM) doesn't allow me to spend that much time in
front of my computer at home, and at work I take already so much time to follow
the list's discussions that I cannot work on it there either :(( . Right now,
I'm plaaning on releasing the first issue on the 18th of October, so that next
Conlang Day would also have its own issue :)) . Anyway, the deadline for the
next issue will be two months after the release of the first issue. I will make
that clear when I issue the first issue (quite a lot of issues in that
sentence :))) ).
And when is

Well, something between two and ten pages would be good :)) . But I don't give
any limits, as long as no article goes so far as becoming half as big as the
Journal itself :))) . So the more articles there are, the bigger you're allowed
to make them ;))) .
Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
