Have fun! :)
Most effective elected official. Ever. (not counting Jubal)

He is Jubal the modder, Jubal the wayfarer, Jubal the admin. And he has come to me now, at the turning of the tide.

Aye, have fun, and let me know when you'll be in Cambridge, I might bump into you by chance or design. :)

It's the week starting the 25th I believe, I'm staying at Sydney Sussex.

It seems a bit strange that to say that I will be away for a while so soon after joining; nevertheless, that's what's happening. I will be on holiday from Saturday 9th to Monday 18th inclusive, meandering around Germany and neighbouring countries by train. For some engineering quirkiness, there is a good chance that this will involve at least one, possibly two, train ferry crossings.

Also, I still need to do quite a lot of organising (route planning and hotel booking, mainly), so I probably won't be terribly active here for the next few days either.

Its fleeing already, our ambiguity has struck terror even faster than direct hostilities. It can't live with the suspense, the not knowing when we might turn on it. Yes we are a genius indeed, a most cunning adversary we are.

Erm I mean enjoy your travels. We all look forward to your return.

Merely a tactical withdrawal, I assure you. I will return soon with my hypnotic stare and my army of city-sacking orcs. Mwahahaha!  >:D

Yes, thank you. I'm looking forward to my holiday, and to coming back.

One tries. Angband, Anfauglith, Tumhalad, Nargothrond, Brethil - and now Germany. :)

Would Germany be Mordor? ;)

Fortunately not: Germany has good beer, schnitzel and strudel, and I doubt I'd find any of these in Mordor.

Meanwhile, I might not be so absent as expected - a couple of experiments have shown that I can read and post here using the browser on my phone. Yay for technology!

Greetings from Germany! All is going well so far, except that the wifi at last night's hotel decided to block Exilian (I got a long message in German, ending in "games"!). I contemplated ravaging the hotel with Fire (and, possibly, The Sword*), but eventually decided against, as it's very convenient and does a good breakfast.

* See "1066 And All That". Also, the hotel isn't in Thanet.
