Thanks Jeff, I hope you have a great Christmas too. Please say 'Hi' to Sandia Mtns for me. The thing I miss most about Abq. I am enjoying the rain up here in Seattle. Are you contemplating the same kind of work or something different? Also have you read Cryptonomicon?
Sorry not to have responded sooner- Yes, I've read Cryptonomicon- I liked it a lot. So far, I've liked everything I've read of his. As far as working goes, right now I'm playing with the Neil Gaiman challenge; working on January.
