talking to Charles de Lint this evening. The whole
thrust of this is the traditional "Please Stand By".
Technicians are Working on the problem. I have the
Hugo finale and the "most exclusive party at the
convention" still to come. Apparently Charles Stross
made it home in fine fettle. Back to content

capital and drain any life's savings that you might
have hoped to pass on to your descendants.
