Latest update from Craig:Hi everyoneIrritated Being Single is back online and looks better than ever.All you singletons, go check it outhttp://www.irritatedbeingsingle.com--------------------------------------------------------------------To all those who know of the website, this is an email I have sent to all members but thought some of you might be interested to know. Hopefully, the new and improved website will attract more members:Irritated Being Single is going through some changes. Due to major problems with the web designers, it was decided to move on to a more reliable web design company. They are currently working on amuch more professional looking website that will be much more user friendly.Due to these alterations, you will need to place your profiles on the site again everyone will get 5 days free subscription when they join (the two weeks free has been altered to 5 days as many users only joined for two weeks and then vanished so members had less choice of prospective dates). I have frozen those member accounts that had a paid subscription with the site. These will continue to run as soon as your profile has been uploaded.I am sorry for any inconvenience caused by these changes and hope to see you all on the new and improved Irritated Being Single website when it will be re-launched in a few weeks time. I will notify all, when the site is online.

I've emailed the journalist who wrote the piece for permission. I'll let you know her reply; although she should be cool with it.The great news is a freelance writer who reports for The Daily Mirror (a national newspaper here in the UK) may want to do a feature on the website in their Health pages. So that will be great to get some National publicity!!Sue, you don't think I kinda have a Rik Mayall from Bottom expression on my face do you? Everyone says I look a little pervy lol. I shaved all my hair off a month ago for the first time in 11 years. Regret it now, as I prefer to have my long spikes back, and not look so uncomfortable in the photo. Oh well.

It's all a bit overwhelming - just got an email from someone in New York wanting to do a segment on a TV show.And another for a radio interview in Washington. It seems the site has picked up more buzz in the US than the UKI'm doing an interview for a UK National paper tomorrow. Can't believe my 15 minutes of fame is going to be about my bowel habits lol

Wonderful for you Craig. It's about time this is gettimg some serious attention.Please consider talking about the misunderstanding about IBS and that it is a real illness with milllions suffering, its burden of illness on the individual and family, the significant impact on quality of life, and the fact that we are at the drug licensing authorities mercy to permit the marketing of drugs which have solid research studies which support their efficacy.Jeff

For those in the area of Washington, I'm going to be interviewed on the Don and Mike Show for CBS Radio and Westwood One. They are an afternoon radio show, and are on the air from 3-7pm EDT, with the final hour of the show devoted to news. They are based in Washington DC, but are syndicated nationally to cities like Baltimore, San Francisco, Miami, and Las Vegas just to name a few.
