We moved our subscription to online-only for 2005, but prior to
that we got all our 2004 issues. Both v.70 nos.1 and 2 were
received in September 2004, no.3 was received in November, and no.4
was received in January 2005. I don't know whether it made any
difference, but we had this subscription through a vendor. Vendors
may be able to put a little more pressure on the publisher to get
its act together than a single library.

I also checked one of our vendor databases and, according to them,
v.71 no.1 is expected at the end of April.
