I'm on the road again. No, no... don't bother doing the Willie Nelson imitation. I'm on European roads, where the twangy country music would seem wholly inappropriate.

Be good while I'm gone, okay? NightStar has kindly provided an alternate Schlock Mercenary Forum in their forum zoo for you to get all crazy in, since it looks like the KeenSpot forum server upgrade is going to take a bit longer than we hoped. Yes, you regulars will have to register in a new spot. No, I don't have a way to make it easier. Still, it's a far cry better than nothing.

I'll be returning sometime on May 18th, at which point I'll have just over a week's worth of buffer. Hopefully I'll be able to sit down and seriously crank on strips for a bit, and get that back in double digits. Let's all hope I don't come home with bugs in my butt this year (note: I'm going to Barcelona, rather than Nice, which is in a whole different country. Also note, I'm not having oysters this time. Note too that I'm knocking on wood as I type this.)

That's it. I'll consider updating this letter midweek next week, and then I'll think better of it and try to enjoy Spain in spite of my spanish.
