Thirteen years is a long time to do anything -- yet that's how long I've been updating this website.
Now, I'm calling it quits, mainly because I've never been able to find the time to do it properly. Also, it's about time for me to do something dedicated to the here and now than to the dearly departed.
I'd like to thank the people who've emailed me over the years with suggestions and words of encouragement.
If you miss me, I'll at www.mansomewhere.com, my travel and culture blog. It's been a bit slow over there lately, too, but I hope to remedy that.
