moistness to the nostrils. But sic transit gloria etc., towards the
end there were really only 3 of us paying much attention. Someone,
an administrator I suppose (or a bot - is there a difference?) had
begun to recycle the earliest messages!
But a new millenium, new resolves (all of them bold, for sure!)and a
new home should set us right for quite a while. For, in the words of
legendary F Mercury, "We're the princes of the universe!" (not gender
specific, I hasten to add, J).
Hell. Does that sound immodest, d'ye think?

seekers. I just wish I had much more time to actually explore this
whole new & improved universe...
I was thrilled that Pynchon's GR found its way to this site: I've
also begun a thorough rereading of GR last summer, after working my
way through "V" again. I sure may not have written much since (next
to nothing, namely), and was even unable to give these here postings
more than a mere glance at times -- but yes, I think we've taken a
big step forward, contentwise.
Ah, speaking of which (Pynchon, I mean): After rereading 1/1 V and
1/3 GR, well, your pet theory became more and more unlikely, to me.
But a nice shot, still! Anyway: If there's, at last, some truth value
attached, I'd rather lay my bets on a reversed outcome (about who's
real and who's not).
Everything else would be way too simple, I'm sure...
