I’d like to thank the individuals who have recently signed my guestbook, and I encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to say hi and to confirm that the slowly climbing hit counter below is not the result of a stalker changing his or her IP address to boost my ego while surreptitiously plotting my destruction. As proof that I actually care about your opinions, I’ve changed the font from arial to verdana, which retains a fairly compact look but is larger than before—I prefer small fonts, but I also hate to discourage visitors from, well, reading stuff. A thread is dedicated to the discussion of this matter on the messageboard. Humor me. Please. As for the book, I’m waiting for another proof copy. Grr. The Waiting Game sucks.
