Nice to see someone responding to the question, thanks!
Are there any more Irish Transhumanists lurking here apart from Sean,
Colm(where've you disappeared to?:) and myself?
BTW, if anyone here is ever over here in the Auld Sod, look me up. I'm
that rare mutation in Ireland; an Irishman who doesn't drink! I'll be glad
to show you the sights of Dublin though..
An open invitation to all.
