How's My Tweeting?

This post is mainly for my tweeps (the people that follow me on Twitter), but is also for my facebook friends because both my tweets (the updates I post to Twitter) and this blog are forwarded to Facebook.

I can be followed at:

According to Twitter, I'm being followed by 62 people.
I have reason to beleave that most of them are not spammers. If that's true, that's the most I've had.
And I would like to know your opinion.
How am I doing?
Do you like what I'm saying?
Why did you start following me?
Why are you *still* following me?

Some of you may have noticed a lack of Brightkite check-ins. Do you care?

Anything you would like to hear more/less about?

And any other comments or suggestions are welcome.
I really want to know what y'all think.

Klingon Kama Sutra

Back on January 25, 2008 (I think), I publicly stated my intentions (via the KLI e-mail discussion group) to translate the Kama Sutra into Klingon.
Also at that time I posted a very rough draft of the first chapter.
The problem was that I was borrowing *multiple* books from the library, and it became increasingly dificult to have ALL of them checked-out simutaniously for any effective amount of time.
Between that and my change in jobs, the project was put on hold.
Until now that is.
On August 1st, we (wife, daughter, and I) moved into our own place. For over a year, we've been living with her family. (Living with one's in-laws also inhibits anything involving the Kama Sutra...)

A week or two ago, I recived an anonymous TXT asking about the status of this project. Being anonymous in nature, I was not able to respond.
I also recently recived my copy of the Tao Te Ching (TTC), in Klingon. And between the TXT and the intro to the TTC, I have new-found motivation to complete the Klingon Kama Sutra (KKS).
While money is tight, I hope to purchase the required texts soon. And between the 'freedom' of having our own place, and my once-again new work schedule, I should be able to make significant progress.

That being said, it's my hope. No, it's my *goal* to see the KKS published.

(If anyone knows who sent the anonymous TXT, let me know)
