FYI --


I’ve learned to post these because otherwise sometimes my online friends get alarmed.

I’m on the road again, hoboing out from Boston, and that means I’m easily inclined to be offline for days or months at a time. Nothing to be upset about – please don’t be alarmed.

Take care,


Happy hoboing! Don’t fall off those freight trains!

Good idea. It’s one of those things - when people we know online suddenly disappear, we realise those people we’ve grown so used to seeing around could suffer some sort of accident, might need our help - sometimes we could even actually help - and we realise we have no way of contacting them or even knowing if they’re allright.

Be safe! Check your email now and then; I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth either; though it might sometimes seem like it from my email habits :slight_smile:

I look forward to hearing from you, S. John, or any of you. It’s my username[at]gmail.


is it not time to drop the bindlestiff and carry a web-powered smartphone already?
