the end of sysadmin

I've been a subscriber of Sys Admin for several years. So I was surprised and disappointed to read this in the 'syslog' (letter from the editor) of the newest issue:
This is the last issue of Sys Admin magazine that you will receive. The magazine is ceasing publication as of this issue.
No warning, no fanfare, they're just done.

There's nothing else anywhere in the issue to indicate the end of the run, and I don't see anything on the Web site, either. Must have been a very abrupt decision.

Sys Admin appears to have been part of CMP media, which owns several other Web sites and publications. I wonder if they'll send me a few issues of something else to finish out my current subscription.
