A Sunday post? Egad - I must be working a night shift.

Woke up this morning and couldn't get into my e-mail. After about 45 minutes with tech support (four different people and about five minutes of it on hold), they determined that there was a page somewhere in THEIR network that had gone toes-up. So I can't get my mail through my homepage, at least until (probably) sometime tomorrow.

But all is not lost - I was directed to a wifty little site called where I can get my e-mail.

It was either that, or use Outlook.


I've been spending a lot of time helping out Hud with Sphere, giving hints and tips.

Long ago, there was a game manufacturer called Infocom. They were the ones who made the original Zork series of text adventures. Anyway, they had really neat hint books that used invisible ink. There was a generic question - "How do I defeat the troll?" - and then some boxes with clues in them. The first box gave a nudge in the right direction. The second gave a bigger nudge, and so on...all the way down to the last box, which gave the complete solution to the problem.

Anyway, I operate like that. A query along the lines of "I've picked up the white box, what do I do with it" will get answered with something like "check everything on the desk, there's a clue there". Just a nudge, not the whole answer.

I also tend to give little evil clues, like "the door is not the exit".

As the Blue Beetle (Ted Kord) would say, "BWAHHH HAH HAH HAH...."


Coming up on a milestone here at Too Old. Should be in a couple days.

Another evil clue. BWAHHHH HAH HAH HAH HAH...

Be seeing you.
