Here’s to another zero comments entry! Huzzah!

Is There A Hungarian In The Audience?

Robin Slick, published novelist, raging liberal, and mother of 2/3 of “the Adrian Belew Power Trio” asks: Okay, Who Knows Hungarian?

Here’s an article about me where I am strategically placed between Pamela Des Barres, Marianne Faithful, Bebe Buell, and Germaine Greer! But for godsakes, it’s in Hungarian and so not only am I unable to translate it, there are no free on line services which will do it for me…

Why that’s a job for BalintMan if ever I saw one!

You Talkin’ To Me?

What American accent do you have? As for me:

Judging by how you talk you are probably from north Jersey, New York City, Connecticut or Rhode Island. Chances are, if you are from New York City (and not those other places) people would probably be able to tell if they actually heard you speak.

I’m particularly looking forward to reading Balint’s results. :)

Computer Says Noooo…

Well hi there! I’ve been out of the loop a couple of days as you may have noticed. Finally brought the iMac to an Apple reseller for repair and got it back with a shiny, new, empty hard disk. No data recovered. At all. As we speak, Dr Sharleena is mumbling all sorts of intricate Spanish expletives at the thing which would truly make for a wonderful Friday Boot. So while I try to convince her of the fact that with the new hard disk, the iMac has been given a new soul and can therefor be trusted again, here’s some tidbits from the inbox:

Off to buy my second external backup hard disk in two weeks now! :)

Update: In a moving group-hug session, Dr Sharleena has forgiven the iMac for its wrongdoings.
