I am not dead. In fact, I have been enjoying my new job. My boss even let me take a day and a half paid so I could go to an anti-spam-type meeti ng. It was the IESG Anti-Forgery Working Group (the group trying to come up with an RFC that stops forged email). More on that in another post.
I have just read 159 friends and community entries (2 days’ worth) so I am caught up but now sort of tired.
