So it has come to my attention that we have some new readers. Not entirely unexpected as I added some of them as friends and they in consequence added me.
For the old guard: These, naturally, enough are my friends in Austin. I believe some general references have been made to them already.
For the new: Welcome! This has previously been my place to keep in contact with some old friends. However, I welcome the new readership and the changes it implies. If you haven’t noticed already, most (half-ish, the other half being babble) of the information is loosely encrypted and intended toward specific individuals with the information capable of decrypting what I have written. With the addition of you there will likely be some posts directed towards you. However, now that you are here, any possible post about you will be more obscurely written as to throw you off, if this is the desired effect. If you manage to decrypt a message, through actual knowledge or a lucky guess or otherwise, and you feel it was something that was not intended for you, then you should pat yourself on the back. Furthermore, if you do this, you are wholly expected to keep this accomplishment to yourself. I do not want to hear about it nor field questions on it. There are other, more time honored ways to get information out of me. I am beyond the childhood state of directly answering questions about anything other than my many and varied Academic pursuits. That said, enjoy!
