Man I've just realised how many beautiful people I've been out of touch with since I stopped posting here. How are you? How's your lovely daughter? She must be a whole lot bigger now.

I've been adrift in cyberspace. For some bizarre reason I've been posting here a lot in the last 2 years. I think it was originally because big things were happening on my home turf and I wanted to talk to other South Africans about them, but despite the fact that it's the forum of a left-liberal advocacy newspaper, it seems to have been swamped by small-minded right-wing white South Africans, with the result that a good deal of my online life of late has consisted of flame wars and unrewarding arguments about race and IQ with crypto-racists (since the Watson Incident).

Anyhoo, my housemate prodded me into getting a facebook profile the other day and finding a couple of long-lost friends put me in mind of all you beautiful people....

I love facebook. It's like myspace for cool people. Figures that I'd only have one friend.

No, srsly! One friend. An Ex-marine. You might know him as "Jacey".

Yes, still in the military for another 8 weeks. Not that I'm counting.

The very best on the Internet. God knows why I drifted away. I think it had a lot to do with a short attention span, too many drugs and a life that was spiralling into self-inflicted - I almost said chaos but it wasn't that exciting - what's a good word for disorganized boredom coupled with a kind of sadness induced by your once-large circle of fleshly friends scattering to other continents until only a tiny fraction are left in the country of your birth?

Wow, where do I start? I got married, bought a house, had 2.5 kids...

What? It could happen!

Seriously though, I'm still single and living with my buddy squian, but now in Austin, Texas. I work at a "major computer company" as they say, but not doing anything particularly inspiring. I was doing work as a SQL DBA for about nine months, but that contract ended and now I'm doing basic network admin/gopher work.

That's about all the news that's fit to print!

Chaos is actually pretty boring. I think that was the right word.
