Nuts! I was just about to ask where you'd been so I could join this elite subculture. Too late now, worse the luck. At any rate you must be exhausted; I'm sorry you had to go to Florida. The Mountains of Western North Carolina would have been so much better.

But, down to business: allow me to introduce myself, Harvey -- I'm very envious of your waiver, and your authorization to hack with complete impunity. Was this a case of co-opting the enemy, or are you a quasi-covert ! N S A ! operator?

Enjoy your retreat,
