Yo Rowley --

I'm always up for talking about Martian Math, even without a laptop
(in Kentucky, Toshiba tells me -- under non-warranty service, even
though it went under warranty).

5 mins or less is fine, longer OK too if needed.

Here's my write-up of our latest meeting, as always completely from
my personal perspective with no journalistic goal of "objectivity"
ever crossing me wittle mind.


No wait, that's not it, here we go:

You can use me as filler, i.e. I won't be offended if I'm asked to
take a back seat to Lowry or Shmichael etc. whom I always learn
a lot from (Rowley is good too, no 2nd banana to anyone when it
comes to being Pythonic (as in pithy)).

I'm not up to hosting yet, though thanks for asking.  You 'n
Jason etc. are just too good at it.

And now for something completely different, picked off of
ChiPy (the Chicago list):


Speaking of Chicago, I defended our honor a few months ago,
when they were accusing us of using "bouncers" (who us?
in Portlandia?).

(wow, over a year ago by now, time flies)

Upshot:  Chicago wants bouncers too (in leather maybe).
