It has been a much larger task than we anticipated to get this new NIAS Press website up an running - which may be just as well. Had we know how much time, effort and occasionally also frustration it would entail, we might have hesitated before planning such a sweeping overhaul of our old site.

In this case, ignorance was (short-lived) bliss, and once started the project took on a life and momentum of its own. We are not quite done yet - perhaps, like gardens, websites are never completely done - but are very satisfied indeed with the result so far.

We would like to take the opportunity to extend our heartfelt thanks to the Danish East Asia Company (Oestasiatisk Kompagni) for the generous grant which made much of this work possible, and which has provided very helpful impetus along the way.

There was no heater in the apartment where I worked, perhaps because my employer wanted to save on the electricity. The weather should have been warmer, now that Chinese New Year was approaching.
