Well, my friends, I’m heading off on an international journey. I will be, Dick Cheney style, in an “undisclosed location”, but generally speaking in and around Austria through Monday. Slope lives on, of course, and I’ll continue to tend the site during my travels, although during radically different hours. I suspect over 90% of you wouldn’t have noticed any difference, since I try so hard to keep things flowing on the site, but I just thought I’d mention it, particularly since some of you have an acutely good feel for the pulse of this place. Good luck to us all!
