That’s 111 zip codes if you’re keeping score at home. (We miscounted earlier on Twitter.)

One last note: This note from the Boston Globe Team.
We know that you have reached out to us this week to discuss your service interruption, and we apologize to those who did not get through. We are working around the clock to resolve our Customer Service and operational issues and get your paper to your door on time.
In the meantime, your home delivery account will be credited for this entire week. This will happen automatically; you do not need to take any action.
Once again, we apologize. For the most up-to-date information on delivery in your area and any new service announcements, please go to our dedicated delivery change page: BostonGlobe.com/ConsumerUpdate.
