Now, thanks to the internet and Anita Conrade, anglophones the world over can discover Gérard Dôle's Chevalier Dupin stories. So far there are two in English: The Ungodly Mirror and Robertson's Shadows. Anita is currently working on the third translation. Dôle was not only an author, but also a musician. Robert Crumb made a drawing of him.
Grr. Lost my first post because my session had timed out. Maybe asking it to "remember me" will prevent that from happening again.

Pending or Appending, c'est selon... I just found out about the horror of PhoenixNet, a little documented feature in Phoenix BIOS. Just what I always wanted: a direct backdoor to my BIOS!

My little sister Angela wrote me today to tell me she had put her paintings on her website. She's a mystical fanasy-loving type, so many of the paintings have a nature theme, but there's one of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon burning. And one done in collaboration with her toddler. Some are too small to see at all, really.

You can also try to visit her homepage, but somehow when I tried to go directly there I got rerouted to catalog city!

I haven't been on the internet all day because Kees has been here using the scanner. To see what he accomplished this afternoon, visit his website.

Thank you for visiting the utterly sputter. I know it's empty now, but it won't be for long. Please come and have a gander again soon.
