Last week, I received an email from Sarah Ellerman, from the magazine "Internet Underground", asking whether I would like to talk with her about this diary. I did send a reply, but sofar I did not got another email from her. Maybe I will here from her tomorrow.
Today, Joel Furr announced to both alt.folklore.suburban and comp.society.folklore that he wants to stop moderating. Both groups are practically dead. When I replied to his posting, I got the following reply back:
From: firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Wed, 29 May 1996 11:26:40 -0400 (EDT) Message-Id: <199605291526.LAA21078@leguin.acpub.duke.edu> Subject: Automated Message You're getting this message because I am almost entirely retired for the time being from the Internet; I am continuing to be involved in a small number of projects but am otherwise so busy in real life that I have not got the time to check my mail more often than once a week. Just so you know.I think it would be fun to moderate a dead newsgroup :-).
This morning I saw a squirrel cross the street, when I was driving on the campus from the day-care centre to the computer science building. I onlt saw it a few seconds, while turning on a cross-section.
I found the home page of Matthew 'The_Nerd' Grossman through a page of Nerds for Hire, Inc. Matthew has an impressive amouth of hardware tide together in his home, but he seems not to have done much on software. I am also missing some realy old things, like a commador 64 or a Quantum Leap, that I might have put in there as well.
The wheater is hot for a change. It's the first time this year that I had to take of my sweater in the office.
I have been listining to Concerto for 2 violins in D Minor (BWV. 1043), Violin Concerto in E Major (BWV 1042), and ``Musikalisches Opfer'' (BWV. 1079) by J.S. Bach. Now I am listining to Suite No.1 in C Major (BWV 1066), and Suite No.2 in B Minor (BWV 1067) again.
I have been listinging to Symphony Nr. 5 c-moll op.67, by Ludwig van Beethoven. The third part becomes very soft at the end (the first time I raised the volume), but then suddenly, just before it goes to the fourth and final part, it becomes very loud.
I just heard that Timoty Leary died.
