It was my pleasure. We've sent out 125 so far. I like that.

Wow- how did you hear about this? I must have missed a rejection note somewhere :)

Have they even updated the website?

Sorry about that. They haven't updated the website. It's a long story, but I'm one of the editors, and the website is currently password protected and I can't find the password. I need to get the university to give it to me. Apologies. I was hoping posting the news here would perhaps serve the purpose.
