Also, due to unforeseen technical difficulties which will crop up at the last minute, I will NOT be able to appear at the Illuminated Donkey Festival, as scheduled:
“Reformatting the Server Whatsits to Clear the Flibber-Flabber” 9:00 P.M. Brunswick Towers Conference Center. Panelists: Michael Whybark and Paul Frankenstein.
Longtime Illuminated Donkey contributors and associates Michael Whybark and Paul Frankenstein discuss the latest Internet technology and why it always seems to be crashing. Attendees are guaranteed that at least one-third of all words used will be intelligible to the general public.
