if you're wondering, hey, wtf happened to alex? why hasn't he emailed/called/whatever? well, I'm not going to explain it in public, but now would be a good time to get in touch with me. basically, I've had some head trauma, and my memory is hosed (as far as I can tell) from May until now, and continues to be an issue going forward (that is, forming new memories). nominally, I augment my memory with the use of e-mail and live calendaring. however, we've also had some issues with our ISP, so I've been offline for a little while too.
anyways, I hate to be a burden, but go ahead and get in touch.
