"My personal situation"

Hey everyone-

I forgot to mention this to this list, as well. Basically, last week,
my father discovered that he has cancer, and his health is degrading
rapidly. He's clearly terminal, but he has between moments and months
to live, so I've been (mostly) staying off the internet and being with
my family. Hence my latest Shoooes work has been a little delayed.
I'll be around occasionally, and being on the internet makes me feel
better, but essentially, I have high latency, with lots of variance.

-Steve

High latency.  Lots of variance.
Just like my internet connection.

Steve -

christ man, i'm sorry -

best wishes to you and your family.  i dealt with a (very) similar
situation last summer, and in fact the year before that.  my most positive
vibes go out to you.

  may you find strength to fight on....

Take as much time as you need Steve - family first.
