Ready for 2004

I’m finally back at my desk, after a couple of weeks of some play and some more work. After clearing off enough mail so that I can now actually SEE it (my desk, that is), I’m now ready to write again. One of the first things I’ll be doing is giving you some predictions for the year 2004. You just have to promise me that by December of 2004 you will have forgotten all of them. That way I can just remind you of those predictions that turned out to be right on the mark. Otherwise it doesn’t work. Deal?

By the way, thanks to fester for his help over the last couple of weeks. (The timing of this post worked out curiously well as a virtual handoff, don’t you think?) I’m looking forward to catching up on his writing.
