Two things. Posted on 10/08/2001.

1. My laptop's hard drive crapped out. Started making "click-click-click" noises. A bad sign. It's at the computer repair shop, where I hope they can recover my data. (Backup my drive? Me? You know, I was *just* planning to... Honest!) So, for the near future, email to me will be sporadically received and even more sporadically responded to. I really ought to have two computers.

2. I'm going to Portland, OR at the end of this week. I arrive on Thursday, leave Sunday. I'm working Thursday and Friday (though with evenings free), and am free all day Saturday and Sunday morning-early afternoon. Would love to hang out with folks. Though I said above email might be tricky, I will make an effort to respond to Portlanders, so write me.
