It was quite a month! Lots of posting. You can take it easy now, have a breather.

Dara:

THE FUTURIST! may take a brief moment to catch his breath. His next two weeks will be filled with work not involving the blog ... so he may post sporadically ... and next week he may have to travel ... he may have to leave the blog in the hands of haiku or the return of The RoboFuturist!

Thank you very much, Dara, for your involvement and the attention you have paid to the posts. The joy can not be fully expressed.

Aw, we couldn't have done it alone. I already miss Shocktober....

For automated blogging, one cannot do too much better than The RoboFuturist! Mostly because The Amazing RoboFrollo keeps breaking down.

THE FUTURIST! misses SHOCKtober, too. It's hurting him greatly. A maisma of sadness has enveloped him.


Mike:

The RoboFuturist! is being oiled as we write.
