Hobnobs

Just heard a new word.

Dan, talking about a new novel, used the term "cipherpunk".
I said "cipherpunk? is that like cyberpunk but with encryption?"
Ha ha ha ha ha ha.
But then he told me what it meant ...
It turns out that I'm old and out of touch and insufficiently geeky.
Waaaaaa.

Away for the weekend

I'm off now. For the next 48 hours or so, I'll only be connecting at 9600, and only occasionally if at all.

By the time I come back, I will have fixed my mother's computer and she'll have made me get my hair cut again.
I told her about next October on the phone -- she went very quiet.

See you all later.
