I'm Allan, the editor of digitalDrummer. Apologies for the technical glitches - we were adding functionality and didn't notice the issues at the front end. And in fact, none of our visitors pointed them out. It has now been restored and should be fully functional.
You will need to register - simply provide a first name, email (which becomes your log-in name) and password. And no, that's not for the advertisers - it's to enable us to alert you when the next edition goes live. Reader information is not shared with advertisers.
We have contacted Alternate Mode several times but didn't hear back - perhaps the groundswell here might trigger a response!
In the meanwhile, please continue to let me know what you like - and what you don't and if there's anyone doing anything different with KAT instruments, please let me know.
As an aside, I'm interested to see that the Kit Toys story was seen as a "filler". It was hard to track Mike down and you will note that there is a chance that he'll restart his business. Interestingly, I've had significant positive feedback on other forums to that particular story as well as to the TD-8 review. But I guess you can't please everyone all the time, no matter how hard you try.
Happy reading - and happy drumming.
