I have, in fact, _not_ fallen off the face of the planet, although it may seem so; I just got diagnosed with mono today, which explains why I have been sick and _so tired_ for the past week. Hopefully, the worst of it is over, but the non-worst may last for weeks yet... Why this is relevant to you: the various recipients of this letter have sent me something in the past week or so which I should, eventually, respond to. I'll try to do this in something resembling a priority queue, so novial and conlang and such may not hear from me for a while until I clear up my school-related stuff. The school-related people should, with some luck, start seeing me again by early next week (tomorrow if I'm _really_ lucky :). Sorry for any inconvenience. -- -=-Don [log in to unmask]<http://www.cs.brown.edu/~dpb/>-=- "How do I love thee? My accumulator overflows."
